There are 4 files related to the HPT366 Device Driver for Microsoft
Windows 95/98:

    1.  HPT366.MPD    The driver file.
    2.  HPT366.INF    The installation file.
    3.  README.TXT    This file.
    4.  HPTPWR.VXD    The driver for ACPI function


I N S T A L L I N G  T H E  D R I V E R:
****************************************************************************
This installation procedure is specific only to the current version of the 
driver and installation file. 

NOTE:  
    The driver (HPT366.MPD) and installation file (HPT366.INF) must be
    located on the same directory of the install floppy diskette.

Usually, when you plug the HPT366 Ultra DMA host adapter into your system and
boot up the Windows 95/98 system, the system will be able to detect the HPT366
Ultra DMA host Adapter automatically and ask you to install the driver for HPT366.
You can just follow the instructions promted by the system to install the 
driver.

Otherwise, you can install the driver by the following steps:

1.  Windows 95/98 must be installed on the system prior to installing the
    driver.

2.  Close any running applications.
 
3.  Open "My Computer".

4.  Double click on the "Control Panel" icon.

5.  Double click on the "Add New Hardware" applet.

6.  Click on the "Next" button.

7.  There is a window that ask you "Do you want Windows to search for your
    new hardware?", choose "No" then click on the "Next" button.

8.  There is a Window listing hardware types, select the "SCSI controllers"
    then click on the "Next" button.

9.  Put the install diskette into the drive A: and then click on the
    "Have Disk..." button.

10. Click on the "OK" button.

11. Click on the "Next" button.

12. If there is a window showing the settings (resources) to be used by the
    driver, then click on the "Next" again. At this point, the system will
    install the driver.

13. Click on the "Finish" button.

14. Then the system will ask you to restart the system. If the settings
    reported in step 12 are not what set on the host adapter, you must
    adjust the settings by using the device manager in the System control
    panel before restarting your computer.

15. The driver for ACPI function is useful only if hardware supports
    ACPI function.
