Can drivers usually be installed 'on top of' existing drivers?
When reading the excellent Tutorial on Driver Installations at bleepingcomputer, I noticed it did not seem to say that uninstalling drivers usually needed to be done before updating them. However, I read the following quote today that that seemed to contradict my understanding.
"Before installing any new drivers, make sure to go to 'Add or Remove Programs' under the Control Panel and uninstall any previous drivers for your device, then reboot Windows, and install the new version."
(Quoted from: The Tweaking XP Guide at (must download) http://www.tweakguides.com/TGTC.html)
Now, I must be missing something, because it also seems that most drivers are not listed in Add/Remove Programs either!
I would like to update most of my drivers, so I just wanted to get a 'feeling' for what was the general rule (of course I will TRY to see what specific update sites say).
