A. Installation:
To Install the Crystal Audio Driver, please complete one of
the following procedures:

Procedure 1 - Windows XP and Windows 2000

It is named Intel ® AC'97 Audio Controller.
Remove this entry from the Sound, Video, and Game
Controllers section in device manager if using an ICH system.
2. Remove the corresponding Intel/Microsoft inf/pnf
file in	c:\winnt\inf.  The names of these files are
wdma_int.inf and wdma_int.pnf. It is, of course, optional
that these get removed in the case of selecting the
"Display a list of all drivers in a specific location,
so you can select the driver you want" option in the
Add New Hardware Wizard. But Plug and Play will be
easier if they are removed.
3. Restart. Plug and Play will occur again. You will be
prompted for a driver.

   you may see the panel "Digital Signature Not Found" with the question 
   "Do you want to continue the installation?"
   Click "Yes."  You may also be prompted for location of driver files.  Please 
   direct to where the driver files are located on you hard disk drive.
   If you are installing the driver with proper digital signature,
   you won't see the above message/scenario. Please ignore this step.

    might become unstable or stop working completely.
    Do you want to continue installing this driver?"
   Click "Yes"
7. If you are installing the driver without proper digital signature,
   you may see the panel "Digital Signature Not Found" with the question 
   "Do you want to continue the installation?"

   "Confirm File Replace" popup during the installation. :
     "The target file exists and is newer than the source. 
      Overwrite this file?"
   Click "Yes"
   If you are upgrading to newer driver you won't see above message.
   Please ignore this step.


RESTRICTIONS :

1. Unnecessary Balance Controls and sliders appear in volume Control. 
   The controls are automatically built by WDM and is a limitation of 
   the WDM architecture. 
2. Windows CD-ROM may be required to install some 
   Microsoft components if not originally installed.
   A large part of the audio driver is by Microsoft and requires 
   Microsoft WDM audio components to install if not already present. 
3. The Sound Recorder application recording meter may only show the 
   left channel. This is an application restriction.
4. DOS games are not supported in shutdown to DOS, only in a DOS box. 
   DOS emulation is supplied by the OS.
