  Before You Begin
  ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  Thanks for choosing the EtherFast 10/100 PC Card from Linksys.  Before
  attempting to install the card, we highly recommend that you read
  the User Guide that came with your card in order to install both your
  PCMCIA socket & card services AND your network driver.

  The instructions below explain how to install the Client32 drivers
  for use with Windows 95.  Client32s are only required if you plan on
  using Windows 95 to attach to a Novell NetWare 4.x file server.

  Setup
  ----------------------------------------------------------------------

  Client32 drivers are required for connecting to a 4.x
  server while in Windows 95 only.  If you are using a
  3.x server instead, follow the Windows 95 setup
  instructions on the EtherFast disk or in your user
  guide to get access to your Novell network from Windows 95.

  Before you begin, obtain the Client32 disks or CD-ROM
  from Novell.

  Remove the EtherFast Card from your PC now  if it has
  already been inserted into a PCMCIA slot.

  Follow the directions below to install and/or configure
  your Client32 drivers for use with the EtherFast Card.

  1.  If Novell's Client32 drivers are already installed on
       your computer, do the following to remove any
       network adapter settings that may conflict with the
       EtherFast Card: Click on Start, Settings, Control
       Panel, and double-click on the Network icon.  If you
       see any network adapters listed in the box, remove
       them.  Finally, remove all floppy disks from your
       computer and reboot.

  2.  If you have not installed Novell's Client32 drivers
       onto your computer, run the Client32 SETUP.EXE
       program.  When the program appears, click Yes,
       followed by Start to begin the installation.  When
       Setup is finished copying files to your system,
       reboot.

  3.  After Windows 95 is up and running, remove all
       floppy disks from your computer.  Insert the
       EtherFast Card into your PC.
  There are currently two versions of Windows 95:

   · the original release (version A)
   · a later release (also known as OSR2, or version B)

  The Client32 installation procedure will vary from this
  point forward depending on the version of 95 that
  you're using.

  If a window appears that is titled New Hardware
  Found, you are using version A.  Skip to step 4 below.

  If a window appears that is titled Device Driver
  Wizard instead, you are using version B.  Skip to step 7
  below.

  4.  You are using version A.  Click OK.  Click on the
       Driver from disk provided by hardware
       manufacturer option, then click OK.

  5.  Put the EtherFast driver disk into drive A.  Type
       a:\client32 and press Enter.

       If you receive a Msgsrv32 error message, don't
       worry -- just click on the Ignore button.  Some
       versions of the Client32 Novell software have a bug.
       Ignore it and proceed.

  6.  Windows 95 will begin copying files.  Supply any
       setup disks or CD-ROMs as necessary.  When asked
       if you want to restart your computer, choose Yes.

       Skip to step 10.

  7.  You are using version B.  Click Next.  Windows 95
       will scan your computer.

  8.  Click on the Other Locations button when it
       appears.  Put the EtherFast driver disk into drive A.
       Type a:\client32 and press Enter.  Windows 95 will
       locate the client driver.  Click on the Finish button.

       If you receive a Msgsrv32 error message, don't
       worry -- just click on the Ignore button.  Some
       versions of the Client32 Novell software have a bug.
       Ignore it and proceed.

  9.  When the installation is complete, restart your
       computer.

  10. After rebooting your PC, click on Start, Settings,
       Control Panel, and double-click on the Network icon.
       Double-click on Novell NetWare Client32 and make
       any setting changes as necessary.  When you're
       finished, save them and reboot.

       The Client32 drivers have been installed.  You
       should now be able to access your Novell NetWare
       network through the Network Neighborhood icon.

       If you would also like to enable Windows 95 built-in
       networking in order to share files, drives, and printers
       between computers, follow all of the directions in
       the File & Printer Sharing section of the Windows 95
       README.TXT document that is included on the EtherFast
       driver disk.
