LSL.COM         This file implements the Link Support Layer for DOS
                ODI workstations and is the program that is generally
                loaded first when booting. The Link Support Layer file
                enables the workstation to communicate over several
                protocols.

PNPODI.COM      PNP ISA Ethernet Adapter DOS ODI Driver

NET.CFG         Sample Configuration File

IPXODI.COM      This is Novell's protocol stack for DOS ODI workstations.
                It performs the same functions as the IPX.COM, which
                is used for DOS workstations. However it is optional and
                is loaded after the LAN driver. Other protocols can be
                loaded in its place or with it. This is one of the key
                features of the ODI environment.

NETX.EXE        NetWare Network program.
                --------------------------------------
                If you use                You Need
                --------------------------------------
                Conventional memory       NETx.EXE

                Expanded memory           EMSNETx.EXE
                (LIM 4.0 EMS Compatible)

                Extended memory           XMSNETx.EXE
                (XMS 2.0 compatible)
                ---------------------------------------

NETBIOS.EXE     The Netbios emulation program (INT 5CH interface) allows
                you to run Netbios application programs based on the
                NETBIOS.EXE interface. The run sequence is:

                   LSL.COM
                   PNPODI.COM   ---> DOS ODI driver
                   IPXODI.COM
                   NETBIOS.EXE
                   ...

RXMONSTK.COM    RXMONSTK.COM is Receive Monitor Utility for Monitor Type
                Applications (Such as Lan Analyzer)

                If the monitor type applications you are using
                seems to stop receiving network packets when you
                install a new LAN driver on your workstation, load
                the RXMONSTK.COM file.

                Load the RXMONSTK.COM file after the LSL.COM driver but
                before the LAN driver. The RXMONSTK.COM operates as a TSR
                and requires 2684 bytes of memory. You can load only one
                LAN driver when using the RxMonStk.

                The run sequence is:

                   LSL.COM
                   RXMONSTK.COM
                   PNPODI.COM   --->   DOS ODI driver
                   IPXODI.COM
                   ...

  Driver Installation with existing Netware client programs:
  ---------------------------------------------------------
  A) Using NETX.EXE:
     If there are Netware client programs such as LSL.COM, IPXODI, and
     NETX.EXE in your system already, you can use the following procedures
     to setup your system.

     1. Copy the A:\NETWARE\DOSODI\PNPODI.COM file to the Netware client
        directory which contains NET.CFG, LSL.COM, IPXODI.COM, and NETX.EXE
        files.

     2. Update the NET.CFG file. You can refer to the NET.CFG sample.

     3. Make sure to add LASTDRIVE=E in your CONFIG.SYS file if your want the
        first network drive to be F.

     4. Enter the following commands to connect to your Novell server:
               LSL
               PNPODI
               IPXODI
               NETX
               F:
               LOGIN <user_name>

  B) Using VLM.EXE:
     If there are Netware client programs such as: LSL.COM, IPXODI, and
     VLM.EXE in your system already, you can use the following procedures
     to setup your system.

     1. Copy the A:\NETWARE\DOSODI\PNPODI.COM file to the Netware client
        directory which contains NET.CFG, LSL.COM, IPXODI.COM, and VLM.EXE
        with related *.VLM files.

     2. Update the NET.CFG file. You can refer to the NET.CFG sample.

     3. Make sure to add LASTDRIVE=Z in your CONFIG.SYS file.

     4. Enter the following commands to connect to your Novell server:
               LSL
               PNPODI
               IPXODI
               VLM
               F:
               LOGIN <user_name>
