To make the Installation Diskette, copy the following 2 files from
your User Guide CD (in the Device Driver folder) to a formatted 3 1/2 inch floppy disk.



     1.  Shutdown Windows if it is running and power down the system.

     2.  Connect the IBM 4560-SLX Library to the system.  Ensure that the
         SCSI bus is terminated correctly and that there are no target
         ID conflicts.  Power on the autoloader.

     3.  Startup the system and log into Windows.

     4.  Right-click on the "My Computer" Icon and select "Manage".
         This will bring up the Computer Management applet.

     5.  In Computer Management, double-click "Device Manager".
         A list of device subsystems will be displayed in the right view.

     6.  The target autoloader may be found in the "Medium Changers"
         section.  Expand the section where the
         target autoloader is located.  Right-click the target "Uknown Medium Changer" 
         and select "Properties".

         NOTE: Troubleshooting the SCSI bus that the target autoloader
         is attached to will be necessary if Windows 2000 does not
         see the autoloader in the "Medium Changers" section.
         Do not continue installation until this is resolved.

     7.  In the Properties window, verify that the SCSI ID matches
         that of the library that you are installing.

     8.  Select the "Driver" tab and then select "Update Driver...".
         This will start the "Upgrade Device Driver" Wizard.

     9.  In the Device Wizard, select "Next".

     10. Select "Display a list of the known drivers for this device so
         that I can choose a specific driver" radio button.

     11. Select "Next". 

     12. Click "Have Disk"

     13.  Insert the floppy disk into the floppy drive.  Make sure
         that the path name to the drive is correct.

     14. Highlight the listed IBM 1x16 Autoloader driver and then click

     15. The "Start Device Driver Installation" view is displayed.

     16. Click "Next" to install the driver.

          a. Should the Wizard indicate that the driver already exists on
            the system and prompts you for a selection, select "New". 

          b. The Windows 2000 Setup window is displayed.  Verify the
            correct path to the driver, then select "Continue".

     17. The next view is "Completing the Upgrade Driver Wizard".  Click
         "Finish".  You may be prompted to reboot your system.

     18. The IBM 4560-SLX Library driver is installed.
