I would guess that there's no explicit VMEbus support in XPE unless you can
find it in XP Pro. Usually, support for bus-specific features for something
like VMEbus would come from the CPU board manufacturer, and would not be
part of standard XP. I've done a lot of VMEbus work in the past, but it was
mainly with Motorola 68K and similar processor architectures, and using hard
realtime systems like vxWorks.

Doug thanks for the response. I had already checked all known sources. After
searching more I discovered and concluded what you have stated. It is indeed
the board manufacturers that choose to support the OS. Concurrent
Technologies is about the only company I have found supporting XPe.

Now lets just hope the customer has their board.
