NOTE: Not needed by NT 4.0 to see CDROM.

NOTE: To get free of the yellow "!" caused by Win9x stock drivers on a Pentium class microchannel machine (or you just want better performance) czech out UZnal's drivers. I have used the SPOCK206 on W9x and NT and it is a definate improvement. Note, you have to install the MS driver first, then you need to whack it and install SPOCK206 or AHA206.

NOTE: This automated CDROM install only installs the real mode drivers. IIRC, it does NOT fix the dreaded "!" of IBM MCA SCSI and Pentium systems under W9x... What I would recommend is to use MCACDROM to boot and install a CDROM, copy the W9x installation directory off the CD, and then run the W9x install from the hard drive, reboot, THEN install UZnal's updated MCA SCSI driver...
