the Weitek Chipset and during installation you may be asked to select the
drivers for your display card (If not asked then choose VGA and refer to the
next Procedure). There is usually a list of several driver installation
options, including buttons for "Default", "Standard VGA" etc.

2. Choose the "Manufacturer Supplied Drivers" option in the window and then the
Have Disk button. Insert the diskette containing the Drivers (e.g. the diskette
in A: drive) and enter the location of the driver diskette e.g. A:\ (if the
diskette is in that drive)

your system and click on OK.

The drivers will be installed and you will be returned to the main Settings
window where you can select your preferred resolution and color depth. After
