Compex RL2000-PCI described here follows IBM Remote Program
Loader (RPL) protocol, which supports NetWare 3.x, 4.x, Personal NetWare,
Microsoft LAN, Manager 2.x and IBM LAN Server 3.x, and Windows NT Server

The 3 sections in this document describe how to install the
necessary software in a Novell NetWare, Microsoft LAN Manager or
IBM LAN Server environment.


SECTION 1 : Installing in a Novell NetWare environment
            ==========================================

This installation guide describes how to install the Novell NetWare
Remote Program Load (RPL) software on the NetWare 386 3.11, 3.12 or 4.0x
server. 

For setting up Personal NetWare remote booting please refer to the software
manual.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR NetWare 386 3.11 SERVER

To install the Novell NetWare RPL software on the NetWare 386 3.11
server:

1. Load RL2000NW.LAN using the 802.2 frame type.

2. Bind IPX to RL2000 net=xxxxxxxx.
   where xxxxxx is a unique hexadecimal number of 1 to 8 digits.

3. Copy this disk copy the RPL.NLM to the SYS:SYSTEM directory of the 
   file server. Then copy the RBOOT.RPL to the SYS:LOGIN directory.
 
4. At the file server console, load RPL.NLM. 
   
5. Bind RPL to RL2000

6. Follow Novell's instructions to build the NET$DOS.SYS, then copy
   it into the \LOGIN subdirectory on the file server.

Workstations installed with any Compex LAN adapter with bootrom can now 
boot remotely from the server.


INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR NetWare 386 3.12 or 4.0x SERVER

To install the Novell NetWare RPL software on the NetWare 386 3.12 or 4.x
server:

1. Load RL2000.LAN  (by default loads 802.2 frame type)

2. Bind IPX to RL2000 net=xxxxxxxx
   where xxxxxxxx is a unique hexadecimal of 1 to 8 digits.

3. Then, Load RPL.NLM. 
   This file is shipped together with Novell NetWare 386 3.12 and 4.x.
   
4. Bind RPL to RL2000 

5. Follow Novell's instructions to build the NET$DOS.SYS, then copy
   it into the \LOGIN subdirectory on the file server.

Workstations install with any Compex LAN adapters and bootrom can now boot
remotely from the server.


SECTION 2 : Installing in a Microsoft LAN Manager environment
            =================================================

The procedures described here assumes that you have already added remote boot
support for your Microsoft LAN Manager environment. If you don't have remote
boot support in your LAN Manager, refer to Microsoft LAN Manager Administrator's
Guide Chapter 13: Booting Workstations Remotely.  Follow the steps to setup the
remote boot environment, but do not use the RPLMGR.EXE program to create a
remote boot profile.


1. Select an OS/2 full screen. Make C:\LANMAN\RPL the default directory.

2. Copy RL2000.DOS to BBLOCK\NDIS

3. Create a subdirectory BBLOCK\NETBEUI\RL2000

4. Create DOSBB.CNF and PROTOCOL.INI files in BBLOCK\NETBEUI\RL2000 as shown
   below:

   BBLOCK\NETBEUI\RL2000\DOSBB.CNF:
        ;
        ; DOS on Compex 
RL2000-PCI Ethernet network adapters

        [protman]
        drivername = protman$
        dynamic = yes
        priority = netbeui

        [netbeui_xif]
        drivername = netbeui$
        bindings = RL2000_nif
        names = 6
        ncbs = 8
        packets = 20
        pipeline = 10
        sessions = 4
        stacksize = 512
        lanabase = 0

        [xnsnb_xif]
        drivername = xnsnb$
        bindings = RL2000_nif
        load = xnsnb[cbr]
        lanabase = 1

        [xnstp_xif]
        drivername = xnstp$
        bindings = RL2000_nif
        load = xnstp[ub]
        lanabase = 1

        [tcpip_xif]
        drivername = TCPIP$
        ipaddress0 = (TCPIP_ADDRESS)
        subnetmask0 = (TCPIP_SUBMASK)
        defaultgateway0 = (TCPIP_GATEWAY)
         nbsessions = 6
        load = tcptsr[c],tinyrfc[c],emsbfr[cr]
        unload = "unloadt /notsr[dc]"
        bindings = RL2000_nif
        lanabase = 1

        [ipx_xif]
        drivername = ipx$
        load = ipxmark[u],ipx[u]
        unload = ipxrel[c]
        bindings = RL2000_nif
        lanabase = 1

        [dlc_xif]
        drivername = dlc$
        bindings = RL2000_nif
        load = dlc[cb]
        unload = dlc[u]
        lanabase = 1


        [RL2000_nif]
        drivername = RL2000$

5. Edit the RPL.MAP in the current directory.

   Add this line below the description of "boot block records"

        yyyyyyyyyyyy BBLOCK\NETBEUI\RL2000\DOSBB.CNF 2 6 A ~ DOS~RL2000~Ethernet 008048 ~ ,,, ~ RDOS ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

   Insert the lines before the description of "profile and workstation records
   added by rplmgr"

        008048?????? ???????? D FITS\DEFAULT (RPL_SERVER_NAME) S ~ ~ ~ ,,, ~ RDOS ~ DEFAULT *~New~Compex~RL2000~Ethernet~* ~ ~ ~


6. Edit the RPLMGR.INI in the current directory.

   Insert the following section before the OS/2 description block.

        [configuration]
        name = DOS330E
        os = DOS330
        dirname = DOS
        dirname2 = DOS330
        bblink = RDOS
        fitfileshared = fits\dos330
        fitfilepersonal = fits\dos330p
        comment = DOS 3.30 Compex RL2000
        adapter = 008048??????

        [configuration]
        name = DOS401E
        os = DOS401
        dirname = DOS
        dirname2 = DOS401
        bblink = RDOS
        fitfileshared = fits\dos401
        fitfilepersonal = fits\dos401p
        comment = DOS 4.01 Compex RL2000
        adapter = 008048??????

        [configuration]
        name = DOS500E
        os = DOS500
        dirname = DOS
        dirname2 = DOS500
        bblink = RDOS
        fitfileshared = fits\dos500
        fitfilepersonal = fits\dos500p
        comment = DOS 5.00 Compex RL2000
        adapter = 008048??????

        And append the following line to RPLMGR.INI
                    ; 008048 = Compex (Ethernet)


7. Logon to the network as an administrator.  Stop the remote boot service by
   typing NET STOP REMOTEBOOT. Next, run RPLINST and then restart remote boot
   service by typing NET START REMOTEBOOT.


8. Refer to the Chapter 13 of LAN Manager Administrator's Guide. Follow
   "Managing Remote Boot" to generate a workstation profile.


SECTION 3 : Installing in a IBM LAN Server environment
            ==========================================

The procedures described here assumes that you have already added remote boot
support for your IBM LAN Server 3.0 environment. If you don't have remote
boot support in your LAN Server, refer to IBM OS/2 LAN Server Version 3.0
Volume 1: Planning and Installation.

1. Select an OS/2 Full Screen and change the current directory to
   C:\IBMLAN\RPL.

2. Login as Administrator and stop the remote boot service (if it is running)
   by typing NET STOP REMOTEBOOT.

3. Copy RL2000.DOS to DOS directory.

4. Create a subdirectory DOS\RL2000

5. Create PROTOCOL.INI file in DOS\RL2000 as shown below:


    DOS\RL2000\PROTOCOL.INI


        [PROTMAN_MOD]
                DriverName = PROTMAN$

        [NETBEUI]
                Drivername = netbeui$
                Bindings = RL2000_MOD

        [Rl2000_MOD]
                DriverName = RL2000$


6. Create a RL2000.CNF file in the current directory as shown below:

        ;
        ; DOS Boot Block Configuration (RL2000 Network adapter)
        ; NDIS LAN Support Program Drivers
        ;
        BASE 7C0H
        RPL DOS\RPLBOOT.SYS
        LDR DOS\RPLLOADR.COM ~
        DAT DOS\LT2.MSG
        DAT C:\IBMLAN\DOSLAN\LSP\DXM.MSG
        DAT DOS\RL2000\PROTOCOL.INI
        EXE C:\IBMLAN\DOSLAN\LSP\NETBIND.COM ~ ~ ~
        DRV C:\IBMLAN\DOSLAN\LSP\DXMJ0MOD.SYS ~ 14 ~
        DRV C:\IBMLAN\DOSLAN\LSP\DXMA0MOD.SYS 001 ~ ~
        DRV DOS\RL2000.DOS ~ 8 ~
        DRV C:\IBMLAN\DOSLAN\LSP\PROTMAN.DOS /I: ~ ~


7. Edit the RPL.MAP file in the current directory.

   Add these lines below the description of "server record fields".

        yyyyyyyyyyyy rl2000.cnf  3 10 N IBMLAN$ DOS~RL2000~ETHERNET~NDIS ~ ~ ,,, Z R_DRL2000_NDIS  ~ ~


8. Refer to LAN Server Network Administrator Reference Manual to create
   Remote IPL workstation records.

9. Start the remoteboot service by typing NET START REMOTEBOOT.
