While your question is about install as compared to use, I'm posting this now:
If you do indeed have a 3 as compared to the later 3usb, depending on the vintage of computer you have, you will likely need a serial port adaptor to match the usb of your computer to the usb of the PC'.
Historically, for the adaptors were "driver" sensitive, and Belkin's were the best. Short story, if you have a PC3 and need to use a usb x sp adaptor, be aware that the PC3 specifically can have problems with the PC3 software if the adaptor/driver combination is not suitable. The PC3 won't get ruined, it just won't work with the software.
Of course, if you have a PC3usb, then all of this goes away.
Beyond that, welcome aboard!
