             Synaptics Touchpad Driver for Windows 2000 / WinXP
                        Installation Notes
                         Version 7.2.5
1. Installing the Synaptics TouchPad Driver

This driver requires Windows 2000 / WinXP.

Windows 2000 / WinXP does not save any of the user settings for users
belonging to the "Guests" user group. This includes special TouchPad
settings as well as all other user settings. If you want your 
settings to be saved, make sure your user account does not belong to 
the "Guests" group using the User Manager program (you must be 
Administrator to change user settings).

Though we believe it should work, this driver has not been tested on 
any multiprocessor machines.

Installation procedure
First, if you have a new TouchPad, plug it in and reboot Windows 2000 /
WinXP.  Windows 2000 / WinXP will then detect your new TouchPad and 
install a standard mouse driver to handle it. You cannot install the
Synaptics TouchPad driver until this process is complete and your 
TouchPad is functioning as a normal pointing device.

Log on to your system as "Administrator", or as another user with 
administrator privileges. 

Run "Setup.exe". This program will automatically install the Synaptics
TouchPad driver to handle all PS/2 and Serial pointing devices
attached to your computer.

You will need to restart Windows after the installation is complete.
If the driver has been installed correctly, after you have restarted 
Windows you should see the TouchPad Icon in your task bar next to the 
clock.  Also, a dialog box entitled "Information about your TouchPad" 
will pop up. You can prevent this dialog box from coming up in the 
future by checking the "Stop showing me this message" checkbox. 

For help using your TouchPad, choose "Tell me more..." from the
"Information about your TouchPad" dialog box, or double-click on the
TouchPad Icon in your task bar, and click on the "Help" button.

If you wish to change one or more of your pointing devices to using 
a standard Microsoft or other third party driver, you should bring
up the Mouse control panel, and select the "Hardware" tab. From there,
select the pointing device you want to change and click "Properties".
Select the "Driver" tab and Click "Update Driver...". Follow the 
instructions to install a new driver.
