Relearn proceedure for 95 7.3 Powerstroke?

Hi,
I'm replacing the ECM on my 95 7.3L E-350 Powerstroke. The data sheet says to follow 'relearn' proceedures. I was under the impression and ECM for this vehicle basically just required a short drive for it to learn whatever it learns.
Does anyone know is that true or is it more complicated than that?
My Chilton manual is useless on this and I can only find one reference to this online that says just drive it around the block, normal acceleration. Can anyone help with this? Thanks!

Don't worry about it (it doesn't really learn) and drive as you normally would. Cheers!

If it's anything like my '01, after my PCM went out and I got a new put in. The tranny shifted hard, accelaration was weird. I called the shop that did the work, the guy told me just to drive it, the PCM will figure it out. And it did. Didn't take too long, the tranny was shifting smooth again and acceleration was back to normal.
