------------------------------------------------------------------------

4. Usage Notes

4.1 DDC (VESA Display Data Channel)

If your ELSA graphics board and the connected monitor support
VESA DDC1 or DDC2B, please call XREFRESH without any parameter
on command line.

DDC information about the monitor is read via graphics board.
Using this information, XREFRESH analyses the maximum sweep rate
of your DDC monitor. With the sweep rate XREFRESH calulates the
maximum refresh rate for each graphics mode resolution.

This establishes an optimal configuration for your monitor.

Introduction

This file will help you to install an ELSA graphics adapter. It
explaines how to setup the ELSA WINNER driver and how to check
whether it was installed properly.

For more information about how to configure an installed ELSA
display driver refer to the Windows help or the help files shipped
with the ELSA utilities.

Installation

NOTE This driver was designed to work properly with Windows NT 4.0
only! When using cdsetup.exe in US-english NT 4.0 with german
settings, the installation stops in "display properties". In
this case you have to install the drivers manually as described
in paragraph 3.3. The tools have been installed correctly.
We use the typical installation procedure as described in the
Microsoft Windows NT manual install the driver also.

There are a some possibilities to install an ELSA display driver:

- Text setup during NT installation (3.1)
- Running the ELSA Setup utility (3.2)
- Change the display driver using the display properties (3.3)
NOTE The ELSA display drivers are shipped on CD-ROM and can be
installed from there. In cases where there is no CD-ROM
it may be necessary to create installation disks first (3.4).

3.1 Text setup during system installation

The Windows NT Setup is a text based program that let you install
Windows NT. During this setup the Screen shows the text
>>Windows NT Workstation Setup
Setup has determined that your computer containes the following
hardware and software components.<<
followed by a list of components. The topic >>No Changes: The
above list matches my computer<< is highlighted.

Don't press ENTER now!

Move the highlight to >>Display: Auto Detect<< and press ENTER.
You are now able to select a display from the shown list.

NOTE We recommend to select >>Standard VGA (640x480, 16 colors)<<
now and continue with paragraph 3.2 later on when Windows NT
is installed properly!

You cannot install from CD-ROM now. You need to have Installation
discs at this time of driver setup. For information about how to
create driver installation discs from your CD-ROM read paragraph 3.4.

To install an ELSA display driver select >>Other (Requires disk
provided by a hardware manufacturer)<<.

You will are prompted to insert a manfacturer-supplied hardware
support disk into drive A. Insert disk 1, and press ENTER.
Select an entry matching your system:
>>ELSA i386 640 x 480, 256 colors<< for Intel-based machines,
>>ELSA Alpha 640 x 480, 256 colors<< for DEC Alpha machines,
>>ELSA PPC 640 x 480, 256 colors<< for PowerPCs.

Now accept the list, if it matches your computer. Continue the
installation following all instructions. Later on you will be
asked to change the ELSA installation disks.
