To start the configuration, you must first pop the CD into the drive. The installation software will start the auto run and a window will show up, giving you options to get going. You can choose to install DirectX 9, install the display drivers, install the Yahoo Companion Toolbar, browse the CD, view the 'read me', or exit the program. We are going to choose to install the Display Drivers for the setup. When you choose that option, the ATI Catalyst Control Center Installation will start on its own. You are opted to Install, Update, or Uninstall the drivers if you already have ones installed.
Once you choose the option to install, you are presented with an option to perform an Express Install with the default options, or a Custom install, to choose the path and what you would like installed. I chose 'custom' to see what exactly was being installed to the test system. Once you agree to the license, the installation will finish up and let you know when it is done.
Once installation is over, you can use the ATI Catalyst Control Center to configure your card, so lets move on and examine the CCC. The first time you start the Catalyst Control Center (CCC) you are presented with an option to run it in Basic or Advanced mode. Since we are here to test the HD 2400 XT I will choose and show you the Advanced mode. When the CCC comes up there is a wealth of settings you can tweak and view.
I will be going over the CCC in the next section.
