        location of the driver files. Once the path has been provided, press 
        the FINISH button.

   3.	Again, Windows95 will request that you provide the Crystal 
	SoundFusion(tm) Disk.  Press the OK button to continue, then 
	provide the path to the location of the driver files.

    WINDOWS 98
    1.  Windows will detect the PCI Multimedia Audio Device and initiate the 
        Add New Hardware Wizard.  Press the NEXT button to continue.

    2.  Select the 'Search for the best driver for your device' option and press

        will do an automatic clean-up of the Windows 95 Crystal Audio registry 
        NOTE: Many problems with reinstallation occur because of existing 
        registry entries from previous installations and because of the 
        \WINDOWS\INF\OEMx.INF files.  After running SETUP.EXE, the various 
        Crystal devices should not be listed in the Device Manager window.  

    2. 	Restart your system.  If you want to remove or install any hardware, 
	select the SHUTDOWN option and turn off your PC.
