 Hewlett-Packard Multimedia Keyboard Driver - 3.2.132 
     --------------------------------------------------------

This program installs the Hewlett-Packard Multimedia Keyboard Driver
which is part of the 6300 and 8300 series Pavilion systems.  It can also
be used on any HP-Pavilion PC which uses the three-button keyboard 
(Internet/Suspend/Information) or the multimedia keyboard with a 
rotary volume knob just above the F11 key.

If you are installing this driver on an older HP-Pavilion PC with 
multimedia keyboard, the following points should be noted:

o As this driver is intended for the 6300/8300 series Pavilions, the 
  multimedia playback control keys, as they relate to 8300 DVD control, are 
  configured specifically for that DVD player. This control is 
  incompatible with the different DVD player which was included with the 
  8190 and 8200 series Pavilions.  If you install this multimedia keyboard 
  driver on one of those earlier systems, you can no longer use the 
  multimedia control buttons (Play, Stop, Prev, Next) to control 
  your DVD playback.

o The keyboard icon no longer appears in the SysTray of the taskbar.
  Keyboard configuration is now part of the Keyboard Control-Panel Applet.
  To access the programming of the multimedia keyboard, open your
  Control-Panel, double-click on the Keyboard icon, and select the
  Keyboard Manager tab.

o Any configuration you currently use for your shortcut buttons will
  be reset during installation. You may want to take note of your
  current configuration before installation so you can restore your 
  settings after installation.

o More keys can be programed with this enhanced driver.
  Specifically, if telephony is not installed the Phone and Messages
  buttons will automatically appear on the Keyboard Manager tab for
  programming. Also, the Information button can also be programmed for
  any application.

o Pre-configured functionality of the buttons is not guaranteed on
  systems other than the 6300/8300 series Pavilions.  That is, after 
  installation, you should check the functionality assigned to each 
  key from within the Control-Panel.  For example, if telephony is 
  not installed, the Messages and Phone buttons appear on the 
  Keyboard Manager tab for programming, but if you press these 
  buttons before you program them, a telephone application will 
  attempt to start, resulting in an error message.  Also, as with 
  previous versions of this driver, you are allowed to select from a 
  list of applications as well as specify your own executable's path.  
  The list of preconfigured applications is set for the 6300/8300 
  series and some of these applications may not exist on earlier models.
