Linksys Wireless/XP advice

I had a hell of a time trying to install Linksys WRT54GS router and associated wireless adapters in XP.

Linksys instructions clearly marked on all devices " RUN CD FIRST " . DONT!

XP has all it needs except the driver.

Install the device, turn on comp and let windows detect. When windows prompts for a driver, click have disk and now insert the appropriate Linksys cd . The only thing pulled off that cd will be the driver. That's it. That's all you want. Piece of cake.

Well, it says that, but it's also clearly stated in the manual (on the CD) that you don't have to...

I found the same thing with XP. All you need is the driver. Installing the Linksys utility program turned out to be a bad idea. However, the utility works gret with Win2K.
