I.  Special Considerations

Configuration of the AT-2500TX is under PCI control, and 
the AT-2500TX is NWAY capable. For most applications, no 
setup other than normal installation of the network 
software is necessary. For any half-duplex application, the 
card by default auto-detects the speed of the link (10 Mbps 
or 100 Mbps). If the connection is full-duplex without NWAY 
capability, you must select one of the full-duplex settings.
In this case, refer to the "Connection speed and duplex" 
information file. 

II. Files Needed for Installation

The following files are required for installation:

\IBMLAN.OS2\A25v3.NIF  (information file)
\IBMLAN.OS2\A25v3.OS2  (driver for OS/2 LAN Server)
\INFO\OS2.TXT   (this file)

III. Installing NDIS driver on OS/2

Before you start with the installation process, make sure 
that OS/2 is properly installed.  Similarly, your adapter 
should also be properly installed in your server.

1. In the OS/2 setup window, Click the "MPTS" icon.

2. The screen will display the IBM Log, press "OK".

3. Select the "Configure" button.

4. Select "Configure" LAN adapters and protocols.

5. Select the "Other adapters..." button.

6. Insert the CardAssistant diskette, specify the driver 
   path A:\IBMLAN.OS2 and select OK.

7. Select the appropriate protocols and select "OK". The 
   installation is now complete.

IV.  Removing an Existing Driver

To de-installation the NDIS2 driver, use the MPTS icon,
highlight the driver and select remove.

V. How to See MAC Address

To determine a MAC address for a card:

1. Boot the computer into DOS with no drivers loaded.

2. Insert the CardAssistant diskette in the floppy drive 
   and launch SETUP25: type a:\setup25.

3. The main screen shows a table listing the AT-2500 Fast 
   Ethernet cards installed in the computer. Write down the 
   address(es) listed in the "MAC" column of the table.
