============================================================================
                   Software Installation
............................................................................
    1).DOS System Driver Installation
............................................................................
Do the software part after finishing the hardware part.  In this section
you need to
A. Turn on the computer.
B. Put the mouse driver diskette that comes with this mouse into a floppy
   drive and type \DOS\INSTALL <enter> under the right prompt (A: or B:).
   Following the installation steps to finish the process.
C. After finishing the installation process, type AMOUSE <enter> under the
   right prompt (A: or B:).If you want to use PC mode, type AMOUSE /M
   instead of AMOUSE.The default command is MS mode. If your mouse
   is connected to a port other than COM1, type AMOUSE/# <enter> instead,
   where # is the right COM number; such as, AMOUSE/2, AMOUSE/3, and so
   on.
D. Type MSTEST <enter> to start the test program to see if installation
   succeeds.

E. More Information About the AMOUSE Command
   After finishing both hardware and software installation, type
   "AMOUSE/?" for an AMOUSE command table.

                   About Command "AMOUSE/R#"

        This command is for adjusting resolution  When you feel your mouse
moves sluggishly you may change the mouse's resolution to a higher mode.
The higher the resolution mode, the faster the cursor moves when you move
your mouse  R0 means the computer will control the mouse's resolution
automatically  R1 is the lowest resolution (the base mode) and R2 to R9
are times of resolution of the base mode  In other words, R2 is a
resolution mode twice high as R1, R3 is a resolution mode three times high
as R1, and R9 is the highest resolution mode.

                   Other AMOUSE Commands

        AMOUSE/?, AMOUSE/H, or AMOUSE/h: for Help information.
        AMOUSE/#: Use when your mouse is not using COM1.
        AMOUSE/M: For MS mode
        AMOUSE/C: For PC mode
        You may give more than one command at the same time without
worrying about their sequence  For example, "AMOUSE/2/R0/M" is the same as
"AMOUSE/M/2/R0" to the computer; both will work out the same results.
