   instructions.

------------------------------------------------------------------

   You may want to print this file before initiating the install.


1. Download the Self-Extracting exe file to a location (folder or
   desktop) on your computer. Be sure to remember this location for
   use during the install process.

2. Locate and double click the self-extracting exe file you just
   downloaded. The WinZip Self-Extractor application will open.

3. Click on "Unzip" in the WinZip Self-Extractor pop-up window.

   NOTE:
   The PSC driver files will be extracted and copied to a default
   folder, the folder will be named "PSC70X-WDM-ENG-VX.XX"

				     PSC70X where X = 2 or 4
				     VX.XX  where X = version #

   If desired, you can designate a different folder by clicking on
   "Browse" and selecting the desired folder. (Philips recommends
   using the default folder.)

4. After extracting the driver files close the WinZip Self-Extractor    application.

5. Uninstall all audio drivers currently installed. Use the Windows
   Add/Remove Programs application in the Control Panel.

   NOTE:
   For WDM driver removal first go to Device Manager and remove the
   3 "Philips Rhythmic/Siesmic Edge" entries under the "Sound,Video and
   Game Controller" tab. Click OK to exit Device Manager.
   Next go to Add/Remove Programs remove the entry 
   "Philips Rhythmic/Seismic Support Files" Click OK to exit Add/Remove     Programs.

   IMPORTANT NOTE:
   If you have an audio device built into your motherboard you must
   disable it in BIOS. There may be 1 - 3 items in BIOS that must
   be disabled. Additionally there may be jumpers on the mother-
   board that have to be set appropriately to fully disable the
   on-board sound hardware.
   Refer to your Motherboard documentation and or the board
   manufacture for assistance.

   Reboot your computer.

   During the reboot process the Philips Sound Card will be
   recognized, this will start the PSC driver installation process.

7. Use the Browse button to point the Add "New Hardware Wizard" to
   the location of the driver files:
   I.E. C:\PSC70X-WDM-ENG-VX.XX\WDM\English. If you extracted the
   PSC driver files to a folder other than the default folder,
   point to that location by using the Browse button.

8. Click "OK".

9. The Philips End User License Agreement will be displayed. You
   will be prompted to agree to the License Agreement.  Answer
   "Yes". If you answer "No" the agreement will be displayed on
   each reboot of the PC.

10. Your installation is finished. You may at your discretion
    delete the downloaded file and the extracted driver files.
    These files are not needed for operation of the PSC sound card.
