Leopard Win56K Driver Update Instructions, Jan. 13th 1999

Driver Updates
You can get the latest drivers from Shark Multimedia's website at

Simply to the Download section and select the Leopard PCI Win56K and then find the
latest driver on the page (check the dates) and then right-click on the file itself.

A pop-up menu will display several options, just choose the one that says "Save
Target As"

Save the file anywhere you choose to on your hard drive, just remember where you
put it.  A good idea would be to put it with your other downloads, or even on your
Windows desktop or Temp folder.

Once the file is downloaded, double-click on the file, this will bring up an unzip
utility that will prompt you to extract the contents to c:\sharkmm.  Go ahead and
click on the "Unzip" button.  Then close the unzip utility.

-Click Start.
-Click Run.
-Type "c:\sharkmm\uninstal.exe" in the box and click "OK."

-When the uninstall utility is finished, close it.

-Click Start, then Shutdown and then Restart.

When your system restarts, Windows will detect new hardware and will prompt you to
install the drivers for it.  At no time should the installation CD-ROM that came
with the modem be placed in your CD-ROM drive during this process.  If it is already
in your CD-ROM drive then remove it before proceeding further.

Windows 95 will search the floppy and then the CD-ROM drive for drivers and finding
none, will then present you with an "Other Locations" button so that you can point
Windows to the c:\sharkmm directory instead.

Windows 98 will allow you to enter a specific location (c:\sharkmm) without having
to search first.

Be sure to have your Windows 95/98 installation CD handy as you may be prompted to
get files from it.

Once Windows is finished installing the drivers click the "Finish" button and then
Windows will automatically run the Motorola SM56 Setup to finish installation the
HSP software necessary in order to make the modem operational.

Once the entire process is complete, go ahead and restart your system again.  The
driver update is now finished.
