Opening Up Windows

Microsoft is offering its Supplemental Driver Library (SDL), a collection of device drivers supporting approximately 126 hardware peripherals, including printers, video displays, pointing devices, and other peripherals that run under Windows 3.0. Some of the drivers provide support for new peripherals, while others provide enhanced performance or new features for previously supported peripherals. This is the first in a series of periodic releases of additional Windows device drivers.

The SDL has a broad distribution scheme to give you fast and easy access to the drivers you need. Moreover, the SDL disks can be freely copied and distributed among licensed Windows users within a company. You can download the SDL from online services such as Microsoft OnLine, CompuServe, and GEnie at no charge. Optionally, you can order the SDL from Microsoft directly by calling (800) 426-9400. There's a nominal $20 charge to cover the cost of the 3½- or 5¼-inch disks on which the SDL is distributed.
