The Intel740(tm) graphics accelerator is optimized to run with the 
following PC configurations:
(1) Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R)II processors
(2) Motherboard: Based on the Intel(R) 440LX, 440BX, 440GX AGPset
    or a later generation Intel AGPset, motherboard must have an 
    unpopulated AGP slot or the Intel740 chip must be down on the 
    motherboard
(3) Operating System: Windows* 95 OSR 2.1 or later (with USB 
    Supplement) or Windows* 98.

**When loading the Intel740 drivers and OSR2.1 or OSR 2.5 for the 
first time, the software should be loaded in the following order:
    (1) Load OSR2.0 or OSR 2.5
    (2) Load the "USB Supplement" (brings it up to OSR2.1 level or 
OSR2.5)
    (3) Load the Intel740(tm) drivers.
    Note: If this is not done in this order, then the Intel740 drivers 
will not be loaded properly and the standard Microsoft VGA drivers 
will be loaded instead.

Also included are release notes describing any problems or issues that 
were known at the time of shipment.

3.0  Intel740 Graphics Accelerator Driver Installation Procedure
**********************************************************************

----------------------------
 General Installation Notes
----------------------------
** The operating system and DirectX* must be installed on the system 
prior to installation (note: DirectX* is provided on the CD along with 
the Intel740 drivers). To update or install DirectX*, simply go to the 
DirectX* directory on the CD and click on "Setup.exe".

** This installation procedure is specific only to the version of 
driver and installation file included in this release. 

** The ".INF" file is the installation file and includes all of the 
driver and Graphics properties page files associated with this 
release.

** This procedure assumes that all of the software associated with 
this release is located in the same directory.

------------------------------------------------------
 Installing the Drivers from floppy disk or hard disk
------------------------------------------------------

(1) After Windows* has loaded, click on "My Computer" icon, "Control 
Panel" icon, and then the "Display" icon.

(2) You should now be in the "Display Properties" window.  Select the 
"Settings" tab, and click on the "Advanced Properties" button. 

(3) In the "Advanced Display Properties" window, select the "Adapter" 
tab, and click the "Change..." button.

For Windows* 95 installation, continue to Step 4.  In Windows* 98, the 
following window appears:

(A) The "Update Device Driver Wizard" window appears.  If you are 
installing the Intel740(tm) graphics accelerator card and drivers for 
the first time, this window may denote Intel740(tm) graphics 
accelerator as a "Standard PCI VGA Graphics Adapter."  Click on the 
"Next" button to continue.

(B) A new window appears, prompting either for Windows* to 
search for a device driver or to select one manually.  Click the 
option for "Display a list of all the drivers in  a specific location, 
so you can select the driver you   want." After this, click on the 
"Next" button, and continue to Step 4.

Continue with both Windows* 95 and Windows* 98 installation from this 
point.

(4) From the new window, click on the "Have Disk" button.

(5) You should now be in the "Install From Disk" window. In the "Copy 
manufactures files from:" box, enter the location of the Intel740(tm) 
graphics accelerator drivers and press the "OK" button.

(6) A window should pop up stating that the "Intel740 Win9x 
PV4.0." drivers are about to be installed.  Click the 
"OK" button to accept the display driver change, and then click the 
"Close" button in the "Advanced Display Properties" window as well as 
the "Display Properties" window to complete the installation.  Restart 
the computer when prompted to do so.

(7) The drivers should now be loaded. To determine if the drivers have 
been loaded correctly, Refer to the "Verifying Installation" section, 
below.

**** Verifying Driver Installation

(1) From the Windows* 9x desktop, click on "My Computer", then "Control 
Panel", and then, finally, "System".

(2) You should be in the "System Properties" window.  Click on the 
"Device Manager" tab.  From here, go down to "Display Adapter" and 
click. The drivers associated with the display adapter should read: 
"Intel740 Win9x PV4.0." If this is not the case, 
the drivers will need to be re-installed.
