There is no need for any setup.

secdrv.sys of InstallShield just requires some functions of ntoskrnl.exe, which
I have implemented to a degree it that it functions.

As of working, in Need for Speed v4 from Electronic Arts I now see the SafeDisc[tm]
Splashscreen, then it is seeking on the CD pretty heavily, then the program terminates.

So consider the first step towards SafeDisc support done as soon as they are 
merged to CVS.

Ciao, Marcus
