Description of this release
===========================

This product includes a Windows 95/98 display driver AND the Matrox
PowerDesk for Windows 95/98, which allows: virtual desktop, hardware
pan and zoom, DirectDraw/Direct3D driver and more...
Installation
============

To install both Matrox PowerDesk and the Matrox display driver, start the
included "setup" program.

The setup program first asks you which language you want to use, then
to choose between a "Typical" or "Custom" installation. With a
"Typical" installation, the setup program installs all Matrox PowerDesk
utilities in the default "\Program Files\Matrox MGA PowerDesk" folder.
We recommend you use "Typical".

After PowerDesk is installed, the setup program automatically changes
the Windows 95/98 display driver, then prompts you to restart your computer
for all changes to take effect.

You can customize the installation process by editing the "mga.ini"
file. For example, you can change the default installation path, default
driver performance switches, default schemes, and so on. The file is
self-documented. This type of customization is for advanced users only.
More information
================

For more information on settings, refresh rates etc., see the WordPad
file "online.doc". This file is included on the Matrox disk, and installed
in your "\Program Files\Matrox MGA PowerDesk\" folder.
Registry settings
=================

PowerDesk settings are kept in the Windows 95/98 registry, under the keys:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MATROX\POWERDESK
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MATROX\DESKNAV
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MATROX\COLOR CONTROL
Notes, problems, and limitations
================================

- DirectDraw, Direct3D and DirectVideo support

The DirectDraw driver we provide is compatible with DirectX 2 (and
later) and includes Direct3D support. For our DirectDraw/Direct3D
driver to be called, and benefit from hardware acceleration,
Microsoft DirectX 2 (or later) MUST be installed, even for programs
originally made for DirectX 1.

Installation
~~~~~~~~~~~~
Refer to your Owner's Manual to install your card in your system.

If you are installing multiple Matrox Millennium cards in your system,
please note that only one should be VGA-enabled through the on-board switch.

Matrox Mystique and Millennium II cards are always VGA-enabled. If you are
installing multiple Matrox Mystique or Millennium II cards in your system,
your system BIOS must disable all VGA-enabled cards it finds after the first
one. When Windows NT starts, the miniport driver will find all cards and
enable them for use. THIS IS GUARANTEED ONLY IF YOUR SYSTEM BIOS IS FULLY
PCI-COMPLIANT. IF YOUR SYSTEM BIOS IS NOT FULLY PCI-COMPLIANT, MULTIPLE
MYSTIQUE OR MILLENNIUM II CARDS MAY NOT WORK.
