SiS 7018 Audio Dos Driver Setup Readme
--------------------------------------

-Please install this driver only if you want to have sound under
 real mode Dos environment, such as MSDOS 6.22, Windows95/98->
 press F8->select Command Prompt only or Windows95/98->Shutdown->
 Restart in MS-DOS Mode.

-To install the driver please run "SETUP.EXE -lg", which is located at
 root directory(please see the Readme.txt at root directory);
 Or do the following:

 1. Copy all the files under this directory and Sam\gm10.sam to your 
    hard disk drive, say C:\DOSAUD.

 2. Please make sure HIMEM is already installed, e.g, a line like
        "DEVICE = C:\DOS\HIMEM.SYS"
    in the CONFIG.SYS file.
    For Windows95/98, you don't have to do so because Windows loads
    HIMEM automatically.

 3. Add 2 lines in AUTOEXEC.BAT file
        "C:\DOSAUD\SNDINIT.EXE/INIT"
        "C:\DOSAUD\SNDTSR.EXE"
    Or you can run SNDINIT.EXE/INIT then SNDTSR.EXE directly under real
    mode DOS command prompt whenever you want to install the driver.

-You can do some basic diagnostics by doing the following

 1. Run SNDINIT.EXE without any parameter then press OK to see some
    configuration diaglogs.

 2. Make sure Sound device is enabled and select proper Base Port, DMA
    Channel and SB IRQ that are not being used by other devices.

 3. Enable MPU401 and select proper Base Port if you want to have
    wavetable synthesis music for General MIDI.

 4. Enable ADLIB if you want to have wavetable synthesis music for ADLIB
    FM.

 5. Enable Game Port

 <NOTE> For SiS630/540, MPU401 and Game Port are not supported by
        SiS7018 audio device. So please enable ADLIB and config
        your DOS game to use Sound Blaster or ADLIB for generating
        music.

 6. You can press '8' or '6' to test sound;
    Press 'M' to test the music. (not supported for SiS630/540)
    Press 'V' to test the volume functions.
