  This document shows you how to use the Windows setup programs. These programs
run under Windows 95/95OSR2/98SE/ME/NT4/2000/XP respectively. You may use
these programs to install/update/remove network adapter driver.

Structure of the directory:

    WINSETUP.TXT                   This file.
    W9X/W9XSETUP.EXE               The setup program for Windows 95/98/ME.

    NT40/NTSETUP.INF               The information file for Windows NT setup program.


    The Windows setup program will search the information file (the default file name
is "NETDLFET.inf" in Windows 95/95OSR2/98SE/ME/2000/XP, "OEMSETUP.INF" in Windows NT4), and
then automatically install/update driver according to the information file. The
information file search paths are current directory, upper directory and root directory
by order.
