When I add a normal map texture in cycles I do this - enter image description here

How to combine the normal map texture with a diffuse|color texture? I don't have much knowledge about the nodes in cycles and I have no idea which node will combine them? Do I have to use the Color-Mix node? If so, how?

    $\begingroup$ One more thing.. It seems that you are using the same image for both normal sockets (diffuse and glossy). If this is the case, you only need one image texture and normal map node and connect the last to both normal sockets. $\endgroup$
