The driver CD that comes with the ECS GF8200A motherboard is just that - a driver CD. No extra software, either proprietary or third party, is included - so don't expect any goodies here. The interface that ECS has implemented is a no-brainer, and could not be any easier. When you pop the CD into the drive, the autorun program will bring up a simple menu for you to use to install the drivers. You have three options on the main menu, which are Setup, Browse CD, and Exit. The Browse CD option just opens the CD in the file browser. The Setup option starts the GF8200A's Setup program, and allows you to select what drivers to install. The INF selection installs all of the base chipset drivers for the motherboard. The Device option lets you choose to install some, or all, of the drivers for the LAN port and the audio ports.
It's as simple as that - no more, no less.
