1.  Install the card in the PCI slot and connect the cable to the network;
    turn on the computer and start Windows 98. **HAVE YOUR WINDOWS 98 CD

    files.

       Note, if you do not see any "PCI Ethernet Controller", Windows 98
       fails to detect your adapter. There may be problem with the adapter
       itself or with the system BIOS.

    g. Click Refresh and a "Add New Hardware Wizard" appears identifying
       the card as a "PCI Ethernet Controller";
    h. goto next step.

3.  Click Next then select "Search for the best driver for your device
    [Recommended]".

    correct path in which SiS 900 PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter driver for Win98
    resides.
