                   Installing IrDA support



System Installation Requirements

HP OmniBook 800 installed with Windows 3.1 or Windows for Workgroups

HP OmniBook 800 IrDA Drivers.  These drivers are located on the OmniBook
   hard disk in C:\OMNIBOOK\DRIVERS\WFW\IRDA. These drivers are also located
   on the HP OmniBook Recovery CD in the \OmniBook\DRIVERS\WFW\IRDA directory.

NOTE: In order to accomplish peer-to-peer communications
with two IrDA devices, a third party application software is
needed. (i.e. LapLink Remote, Puma...etc.)  To print to an
IrDA printer, no additional software is needed because the
printer driver acts as the application software.

     directory to the c:\windows\system directory.
