1. Important Note
=================================================================
Please read this README file and all the supplied documentation 
BEFORE you continue the installation.

This is not an official release of the S3 Savage 4 display 
driver. It is a combination of the official Windows 2000 drivers 
8.40.40 and 8.40.30.

However unofficial the package may be, this release still uses 
unmodified files (*.dll) from official S3 releases.


3. Installation Instructions

Manual Installation via .inf:
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Click Start, then Settings, then Control Panel.

Start the "Display" applet program. 

Select the 'Settings' page, push the 'Advanced' button. Click on 
the 'Adapter' tab, push the 'Properties' button, clock on the 
'Driver' tab, and click on 'Update Driver'.

Push the "Have Disk" button and press "OK".

Specify the path to the new drivers' .inf file and press the 
      <ENTER> key:
      Example 1: Insert the drivers disk in the A: floppy drive,
                 and enter A:\.
      Example 2: Type in the name of the directory where you 
                 copied the drivers, either on your local hard 
                 drive or on a network shared drive.
      Example 3: If you're not sure exactly where the drivers 
                 are, choose the "Browse..." button and find them.

The "Select Device" dialog box will appear. Select the adapter 
that corresponds to the one you installed in your machine and

Windows will copy the display drivers to the proper 
directories on your system.
