How to use companion(Driver CD)

Hi

I received a Driver DVD with ASUS motherboard which contains drivers for both windows and linux.


I dont know how to use the drivers lying inside the DVD, there is a file with a name Chipset driver for linux

How can i show path for that file during installation

Should i have to make driver cd in a special way so i can point it to Linux installation by using linux dd option


Regards

You havent even got to the point where the drivers are needed, probably, nor are you at the point where you can install them if you needed them anyway!

Did you try what I suggested.
