>>Here are the steps to take to install a QuickCam with Window '95
>>
>>1) Run the QuickCam installer.
>>
>>2) Make sure the capture driver, called QUICKCAM.DRV, is in the
>> /WINDOWS/SYSTEM directory.
>>
>>3) Check the file SYSTEM.INI (in the /WINDOWS directory) and make sure
>> there's an entry in the [drivers] section for msvideo like this:
>>
>> msvideo=quickcam.drv
>>
>> If you've had another capture driver installed you might see another
>> driver listed as msvideo and another entry, msvideo1=quickcam.drv. In
>> this case you should switch the quickcam to be msvideo and the other
>> driver to be msvideo1.
>>
>>4) Use the Win'95 Control Panel for Multimedia. On the 'Advanced' section,
>> double click on the Video Capture Devices icon. You should see an
>> entry for QuickCam. Double click on the icon for QuickCam. Make sure
>> the "Use the video capture device" choice is selected.
>>
>>5) Restart Win'95.
