   B. Manual Installation for Windows for Workgroups. (Not recommended if
      you are using Windows for Workgroups 3.11)

      1. Preinstall WFW using the included Novell NE2000 compatible driver.
         WFW will generate a default PROTOCOL.INI and CONFIG.SYS file using
         the selected NE2000 network driver.

      2. You must modify the generated PROTOCOL.INI and CONFIG.SYS files
         using any text editor. (i.e. MSDOS EDIT)

         --------- modify PROTOCOL.INI ----------

      3. The PROTOCOL.INI file will have multiple references to the
         "ms$ne2clone" name.  Change all occurences of this name to "UM9008".
         In a standard PROTOCOL.INI, there should be a total of 7 replacements.

         There would be 4 replacements in the [network.setup] section.
         Please take note of the following lines in [network.setup] section,


         There will be a [ms$ne2clone] section.  This should also be changed
         to [UM9008].

         In both [MS$NETBEUI] and [MS$IPX] sections, there will be a


         command line.  The BINDINGS command must be bound to "UM9008".

      4. There will also be a reference to "ms2000$" in the [UM9008] section
         which needs to be changed to the UM9008$.

         The succeeding pages include working sample of CONFIG.SYS and
         PROTOCOL.INI files for WFW using Pnp Ethernet adapter.

         --------- modify CONFIG.SYS ----------

      5. Your CONFIG.SYS will have the following statement for loading the
         "NE2000.DOS" device driver.


         Change this line to load the UM9008 NDIS device driver :


   C. UM9008 NDIS PROTOCOL.INI User Guide

      This guide lists the available PROTOCOL.INI keywords for UM9008
      NDIS device drivers.  Most of the keywords are optional and have
      default values.

          IOBASE    - This keyword specifies the base I/O port address used
                      by the UM9008.

          INTERRUPT - This keyword specifies the interrupt line used by the

          DRIVERNAME- This keyword specifies the NIC driver's name.  The NIC
                      driver name follows the NIC adapter type. (i.e. UM9008)

          ADAPTERID - This keyword specifies the adapter ID used by UM9008.
