Installation:
=============

1.How to Install Linux Driver

  1.1 Configure your hardware device when intalling Linux

      1.1.1 Video Configureation

            Please choose another video card, for example "S3 Savgae4 (generic)"
            because CLE graphic chip is not on the support list. We will modify
            this configuration in step 3 for CLE graphic chip after the 
            installation. If you choose to "Skip X Configuration", you could 
            configure X after the installation following step 1.2.

      1.1.2 Monitor Configuration

            The installation program will attempt to detect your monitor to 
            determine your machine's best display setting. You may also enter 
            the horizontal and vertical synchonization ranges for your monitor.
            These value can be found in the documentation for your display.

      1.1.3 Custom X Configuration

            Please choose your login type as "text" because we need post 
            configuration after the installation.

  1.2 Configure your hardware device after intalling Linux

      If you choose to "Skip X Configuration" when install Linux. Please do 
      following step..

      1.2.1 Login as root

      1.2.2 Check is there a link point to /usr/X11R6/bin/XFree86

          # cd /etc/X11
          # ls -l X
      
          If there is no link named "X", then do following..
          # ln -s /usr/X11R6/bin/XFree86 X

          Note: 
          If you skip the step of X setup when install Linux, there
          will be no link named "X" in /etc/X11.

      1.2.3 Run "xf86config" to configure your keyboard, mouse and monitor
          # xf86config

          The configuration program will create the file "XF86Conifg" in the 
          /etc/X11 directory. If there is the file named "XF86Config-4", 
          please remove or rename it.
