Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeMusic sound card

Just need a quick installation guide. I took delivery of the above card today. The package contents where the Card, case badge and installation cd.

I presume you just simply plug the card into an available PCI slot and install the drivers and Bob's your Uncle.

The only reason I ask is that unless i'm mistaken the sound card I have now is a Audigy LS and i'm pretty sure there's a lead going from the sound card into the back of the dvd-rom drive and there's no such cables in with the X-Fi box.

Thanks everyone.

I had a look at package contents for the card at creative and is no mention of cd to card cable. You should have a quick start guide and a user guide in the box. On my old computer I had a soundblaster that worked ok with no cable even though it was supposed to have one. The data just goes through the ribbon cable. Maybe these fancy new cards don,t need a cable.

Thanks very much for that, that's cleared it up for me.
