Hard disks also contain a copy of the Windows display driver
for the video subsystem, but Windows is factory configured
to use the standard VGA driver. For instructions on changing
the Windows display setup refer to the CL543X help file
In addition to a working copy of MS-DOS, Windows and the
Windows display driver, your hard disk will contain images
of the DOS and Windows installation diskettes, and any
drivers diskettes for your computer. A Windows utility is
provided to allow you to create copies of these diskettes.
This utility is run whenever you start Windows.
You will need a copy of the display driver diskettes should you
wish to install a display driver for a non-Windows
application. Refer to the CL543X help file in Windows for
information on the drivers and utilities supplied.
Copies of the DOS and Windows diskettes will safeguard
against hard disk failure, or accidental overwriting or
deletion of files. It is recommended that you use the utility
to create copies of the diskettes soon after setting up your
