  Before starting with the installation process, make sure that the adapter
  is properly installed and configured. You can use the diagnostic program
  (A:\SETUP.EXE) to make sure your connection with the network is correct.

  Installation Packet Driver:
    1) Copy the Packet driver to your HardDisk, suppose you copy it to
       C:\PACKET directory.
       EX: copy  a:\packet\  c:\packet\

    2) Add the following line to C:\AUTOEXEC.BAT
           C:\PACKET\FETPKT -n 0x60 

Configuration Files:

    Sample of configuration file:
    (Suppose PACKET driver is copied to C:\PACKET directory)

    File Name:          C:\AUTOEXEC.BAT
        C:\PACKET\FETPKT  -n  -w  0x60   

      0x60 is software vector number this driver uses.
      -n means Novell packets can be transmitted across this driver
      -w means Window compatible.
       if you want to link to N-way Device and use auto mode, you can add parameter as follow:         
       C:\PACKET\FETPKT -a -n0x60

       if you want to force assigning linespeed equal 100Mbs or 10Mbs,halfduplex or fullduplex,
       you can add parameter as follow:
       C:\PACKET\FETPKT -s100 -f -n0x60  (speed=100Mbs fullduplex)
       C:\PACKET\FETPKT -s10 -h -n0x60   (speed=10Mbs halfduplex) 
       if you want to force assigning pci slot number you can add parameter as follow:
       C:\PACKET\FETPKT -l10  -n0x60  (pci slot number=10)
