Default Which Display drivers to install - Remote Wonder II doesn't work

I have recently purchased and installed a 9600XT All-in-Wonder
graphics card. Though I am computer literate enough to have recently
built the computer in which the graphics card has been installed, I
find trying to decipher and understand ATI technologies is extremely
complicated and very confusing. Sorry to be such a dummy about this,
but I'm hoping some of you can assist with what you might think are
simple and basic questions.

What leads to this need for better understanding is the fact that I
had difficulty with the initial installation of the drivers and
associated files (MMC, Remote Wonder, etc) that came with the ATI
9600XT. Thinking it might have been because I needed to upgrade my
Windows XP to SP-2, I installed Service Pack 2, completly uninstalled
the existing ATI drivers and re-installed the drivers from the CD
which came with the card.

Because I still have a few issues I'm thinking of installing the
updated drivers from the ATI website. (Catalyst 4.10.26a ??)
When I go to the site to find the drivers I'm given two options to

1) Display Driver Control Panel and WDM Capture Driver
2) Display Driver, CATALYST Control Center and WDM capture driver

I honestly do not know which of the two I should download and install.

(Just what IS the CATALYST Control Center? I see numerous CCC
references on this newsgroup but have no idea what it is and whether
it is something I should install. It seems to be related and of
interest to 3-D and gaming. While I have little interest in gaming, my
primary interest in this graphics card has to do with capturing and
burning video to DVD.)

If option 2 is the better choice for me, this option indicates I must
have Microsoft's .Net Version 1.1 Framework installed. Just what is
..Net Version 1.1 Framework? I googled it and, being the layman I am,
simply could not understand what I was reading. Can any of you be of
assistance here? Since I am interested in video capture and not
gaming, should I install .Net Version Framework AND option 2?

Another issue I'm having is with the installation of Remote Wonder II.
Simply stated, I cannot get the remote control to work and have no
idea why. I thought it might be the batteries in the remote. But when
I press the keys, they light up rather vigorously. When installing the
USB antenna module, there was a problem with Windows recognizing and
approving the drivers. I "think" it might have installed, but have no
way of knowing whether it's receiving RF signal from the remote. It
seems it is not. Are there any troubleshooting techiques that can be

Thanks in advance for any assistance you may provide.
