Contents of the Subdirectory:

    LMDOS.TXT           This file.
    FETND.DOS           The NDIS2 driver for Lan Requester DOS workstations.
    PROTOCOL.INI        Sample protocol.ini file.
    ..\..\NIF\FETND.NIF The installation information file.


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

  Installing driver procedure on LAN MANAGER DOS WorkStation:

     1) If you install LAN Manager for the first time, you Install LAN Manager
        to your HardDisk by running SETUP.EXE program from the setup diskette.
        Upon completion of the workstation's last disk installation, you
        will be asked if you want to import additional network drivers.
        Answer "YES".

        If you have already installed LAN Manager in your hard disk, run
        SETUP.EXE from HardDisk and select "Actions"->"Import Network Driver"

     2) Insert the NDIS2 driver diskette into drive 'A' and follow the steps
        on the screen. Select the "Plug&Play ETHERNET ADAPTER" card and press
        "enter", then SETUP.EXE program will copy the necessary NDIS2 driver
        programs from the driver diskette to your hard disk, according to LAN
        MANAGER file structure.

     3) Reboot your computer for the changes to take effect.

Configuration Files:

    Sample of configuration file:
    (Suppose the Lan Requester package is installed at C:\NET directory)

    File Name:          C:\CONFIG.SYS

    File Name:          C:\AUTOEXEC.BAT
        (Suppose Computer name is set to AAA)

    File Name:          C:\LANMAN.DOS\PROTOCOL.INI
          Drivername = netbeui$
          BINDINGS   = "FETND_NIF"

    Custom Keywords:
        FULLDUPLEX                      This keyword is used to enable full
                                        duplex mode.
                                        (suggest use CONNECTIONTYPE instead of this keyword)

        SPEED                           This keyword is used to force the
                                        adapter at 10Mbps or 100Mbps speed.
                                        (suggest use CONNECTIONTYPE instead of this keyword)

        AUTO                            This keyword is used to force the

        DEVICENO                        This keyword is used to force device number
                                        for specified NIC card

        BUSNO                           This keyword is used to force bus number for
                                        specified NIC card
        CONNECTIONTYPE                  This keyword is used to specify duplex 
                                        and speed mode. The strings are :
        FLOWCTRL                        This keyword is used to specify flow contro
                                        ability. The strings are :

                                        Driver doesn't care the result of auto-negotiate if 
                                        the value of this keyword, FLOWCTRL , is ENALBE or
                                        DISABLE. It just enables or disable flow control
                                        ability according your setting.

        NETWORKADDRESS                  This keyword is used to override the network address
                                        of the network adapter. Its type is :
        Note: If you want to specify NIC card, the DEVICENO is necessary, but BUSNO is optional
              When the NIC cards in the system have the same device number, you can use 
              BUSNO to specify.
              If there are two or more NIC cards in the system and you don't specify anyone,
              driver will display the menu for selection. You can get the information about 
              bus number and device number form this menu.
