      Combo Audio Driver Components for Windows XP Embedded SP1
           Copyright (C) 2002-2004 VIA Technologies, INC.

1. Release note
   This package is ver 8.0, adapted from logo'ed audio driver for chips VT82C686A, VT82C686B, VT8231,
   VT8233, VT8233A, VT8233C, VT8235 and VT8237. We have modified 
   and added two generic device IDs to the "VIAUDIO.INF" file so 
   that all the boards, regardless of their specific Subsystem IDs, 
   can use these components. However, the CAT file is no longer 
   valid as a result.

   VIA provides the user with this sample component implementation,
   to ease development and test effort. The user, however,
   is advised to obtain the latest available driver and author
   his or her own components.
