  • Internet access (dial-up or broadband, including DSL, Cable, T1),

  1. If you installed from CD, your CDs for this year and possibly last year.
  2. The logon name and password for administrator access. If installation of software is required, the Windows logon used must have appropriate permissions and privileges.
