Installing and Uninstalling Programs and Devices 77 Here's a translation of what the various check box states mean in the Components list: Un- checked means the component is not installed. If the component comes in several pieces, none of those pieces is installed. Checked with a gray background means the component is partially installed. That is, the component has multiple chunks, but only some of those chunks reside on your system. Checked with a white background means the component is installed. If the component comes in several pieces, all of those pieces are installed. You have two ways to proceed: · To add an entire component, activate its check box. · To add only part of a component (assuming that it has multiple parts), click the component name to highlight it and then click Details. In the new dialog box that appears, activate the check boxes for the subcomponents you want to install, and click OK. Click Next. The wizard takes a few moments to gather its thoughts before moving on to the next step. It's likely that the wizard will prompt you to insert your Windows XP CD-ROM. If so, insert the CD-ROM, wait about five seconds, and then click OK. The wizard installs the necessary files to your computer. Click Finish. The wizard drops you off back at the Add or Remove Programs window. Click Close. Depending on the components you add, Windows XP might ask you to restart your computer. If it does, remove the Windows XP CD and then click Yes to let Windows XP handle this for you. When the restart is complete, the new components are ready to roll. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.
