                        the Company by completing the attached "Notice of 
                        Exercise of Stock Option" form and filing it with the

                        will be effective when the Company receives it. If

                          option  shares and to deliver to the Company from the 
                          sale proceeds in an amount sufficient to pay the 
                          option exercise price and any withholding taxes. The
                          balance of the sale proceeds,  if any, will be 
                          delivered to you.

WITHHOLDING             any withholding taxes that may be due as a result of
                        the option exercise. These arrangements may include
                        withholding shares of Company stock that otherwise would
                        be issued to you when you exercise this option. The 
                        value of these shares, determined as of the effective
                        date of the option exercise, will be applied to the
                        withholding taxes.

RESTRICTIONS ON         By signing this Agreement, you agree not to sell any 
RESALE                  option shares at a time when applicable laws, Company 
                        policies or an agreement between the Company and its 
                        underwriters prohibit a sale. This restriction will 
                        apply as long as you are an employee, consultant or 
                        director of the Company or a subsidiary of the Company.

                        You cannot transfer or assign this option.  For 
                        instance, you may not sell this option or use it as 
                        security for a loan.  If you attempt to do any of these 
                        things, this option will immediately become invalid.  
                        You may in any event dispose of this option in your 
                        will. Regardless of any marital property settlement 
                        agreement, the Company is not obligated to honor a 
                        notice of exercise from your former spouse, nor is the 
                        Company obligated to recognize your former spouse's 
                        interest in your option in any other way.

RETENTION RIGHTS        Neither your option nor this Agreement gives you the 
                        right to be retained by the Company or a subsidiary of 
                        the Company in any capacity. The Company and its 
                        subsidiaries reserve the right to terminate your service
                        at any time, with or without cause.

STOCKHOLDER RIGHTS      You, or your estate or heirs, have no rights as a 
                        stockholder of the Company until you have exercised this
                        option by giving the required notice to the Company and
                        paying the exercise price. No adjustments are made for
                        dividends or other rights if the applicable record date
                        occurs before you exercise this option, except as 
                        described in the Plan.

ADJUSTMENTS             In the event of a stock split, a stock dividend or a
                        similar change in Company stock, the number of shares
                        covered by this option and the exercise price per share
                        may be adjusted pursuant to the Plan.

APPLICABLE LAW          This Agreement will be interpreted and enforced under
                        the laws of the State of Nevada (without regard to their
