(1) Modifying an existing NetWare 3.12 Server
    1. Backup NBI.NLM, MSM.NLM and ETHERTSM.NLM to other place.

    2. Please insert release driver diskette into floppy disk.

    3. Copy all provided NLM and LAN files into your dos directory
       which include SERVER.EXE.

          COPY A:\NWSERVER.312\NBI31X.NLM   C:\SRV312
          COPY A:\NWSERVER.312\MSM31X.NLM   C:\SRV312
          COPY A:\NWSERVER.312\SIS900.LAN  C:\SRV312

    4. Start the NetWare Server.

    5. From the Novell Server side, execute "LOAD INSTALL".  Type:

    6. Select <System Option>

    7. Select <Edit Autoexec.NCF file>

    8. Add below item into the server's AUTOEXEC.NCF file.

        LOAD C:\SRV312\NBI31X.NLM
        LOAD C:\SRV312\MSM31X.NLM

        LOAD C:\NWSERVER\SIS900 SLOT=1 FRAME=Ethernet_802.3
        BIND IPX SIS900_1_E83 NET=xxxx

        LOAD C:\NWSERVER\SIS900 SLOT=1 FRAME=Ethernet_802.2
        BIND IPX SIS900_1_E82 NET=xxxx

        LOAD C:\NWSERVER\SIS900 SLOT=1 FRAME=Ethernet_II
        BIND IPX SIS900_1_EII NET=xxxx

        BIND IPX SIS900_1_ESP NET=xxxx

    9. Restart the server again.

(2) Optional LOAD line parameters

    1.SLOT ( Required for multiple cards )

      Specifies the NBI (NetWare Bus Interface) slot number.

      For PCI adapters, SLOT is derived from bus number and device
      location as defined by the PCI specification. One way to determine
      the slot number is to load the driver from the command line. You'll
      be prompted with valid device number(s) for the adapter(s). Select
      one of them.

      Syntax:  SLOT=n     (n = 1,2,3,4,...)


      Specifies a local administered address (LAA) unique to each adapter.

      Use this option to provide your own unique node address
      for the adapter.  The node address is a 12-digit hexadecimal
      number; the second digit must be one of the following digits: 2, 6,
      A, E.

      Syntax: NODE=xnxxxxxxxxxx

      n = 2, 6, A, E
      x = hexadecimal number

      Default: The adapter's assigned address.


      Specifies the mediatype that is currently used.

      Use this option to force your connection type. We support the
      following media types:

         Type       Ethernet Standard    Duplex
       --------     -----------------    ------
        AUTO          auto-detect         Auto
        UTP           10BASE-T            Half
        UTPFULL       10BASE-T            Full
        FAST          100BASE-T           Half
        FASTFULL      100BASE-T           Full

      Syntax: MEDIATYPE=Type

      Type: see above.

      Default: Auto-Detect.
