dirctory C:\i386\DRVLIB.NIC

My question is about a directory called C:\i386\DRVLIB.NIC, which consist of a lot of subdirectories. Do I really need all of them? I work on a standalone computer using it for surfing the web and word-processing.  I have the following eqiupment:
· 200 Mhz Pentium Pro with 64 MB RAM.
 · USR Sportser modem
· Matrox milennium 4MB
-No sound card installed

My understanding of this is that the DRVLIB.NIC is the DRiVer LIBrary for the Network Interface Cards that can be installed from the NT CD.

If you are totally stand alone, then I would not expect you to need the contents of DRVLIB.NIC.

However, you may decide to change your configuration and may have need for a driver from the supplied directory tree.

On this basis, I would suggest that you have some form of access to it.

If the CD is handy, you could delete it, if not, what about zipping it up to save space.

If you did delete it though, you should be able to download any driver you needed anyway - you could quite possibly end up with a more up to date one with fixes in it.

To some up, delete it if you need the space and if you can't afford to keep a zipped copy, get hold of any driver you need when you need it.

Hope that's answered your question !
