  Introduction
  ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ
        Thank you for purchasing the D-Link DMF-560TXD DirectPort PC Card. This
        diskette has network driver support for the PC Card. There is a format
        change for this driver disk. All README's have been reformatted, an easy
        setup program, and consistency on all documentation provided.

        We hope our new readme's and installation will minimize the users
        effort to make our products work. Should you have further
        recommendations please contact the support manager.

  Install PC Card Software Manually
  ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ
        The installation software has been carefully designed to detect
        a combination of hardware and software installed on the PC. Proper
        detection will allow the PC's PC Card drivers to enable the
        PC Card. If the installation software fails to complete, the enabler
        will need to be manually copied from the driver disk to the PC.

        If Windows for Workgroup 3.11, Windows NT, or Windows 95/98 are used,
         follow the instructions for installing PC Cards in the PC's manual.

        Determine if any third party generic enablers installed on the PC.
         These are identified by a search through the CONFIG.SYS file for
         the following lines:

             Vendor           Device Loaded in CONFIG.SYS
             ---------------  -------------------------------
             Awards Software  DEVICE=C:\CARDWARE\PCENABLE.EXE
             System Soft      DEVICE=C:\CARDSOFT\CARDID.EXE
             Phoenix          DEVICE=C:\PCMPLUS\PCMSCD.EXE

         If one of these exist in your CONFIG.SYS, it can be used to enable
         the PC Card. Follow the PCMCIA driver installation instructions in
         the PC's manual.

        If the PC Card drivers do not support multi-function cards, please
         use the included enabler.

            Disable all current PC Card drivers by editing the CONFIG.SYS
             and AUTOEXEC.BAT. If it is necessary to keep these drivers
             for other adapters skip to next section.
            Insert Driver Disk in drive A:.
            Type C: at the command prompt.
            Type MD LMCARD to make a new directory.
            Type COPY A:\ENABLER\*.* C:\LMCARD to copy the enabler to
             your directory.
            Modify the PATH= statement in your AUTOEXEC.BAT to include
             path C:\LMCARD.

             Change From  PATH=<Original Path>
                    To    PATH=<Original Path>;C:\LMCARD

        Use the CARDEN.EXE to enable the PC Card when the PC is loading
         Card Services.

  Getting Started
  ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ
        For Novell, Lan Manager, and Packet Driver, first insert the
         D-Link DMF-560TXD DirectPort PC Card into one of the free PCMCIA
         card slots, remove all other PC Cards from your machine.

        Then insert the "D-Link DMF-560TXD DirectPort PC Card Drivers Disk"
         into drive A, and type A:\INSTALL at the command prompt.  The
         installation program will copy files to the destination directory
         and modify your related files(CONFIG.SYS, AUTOEXEC.BAT, and NET.CFG).

        For Windows for Workgroup, Windows NT & Windows 95/98, use the
         "Network Setup" utility provided by windows system to install
         the PC Card. On this disk you will find sub-directories for each of
         the Microsoft products. Each directory has a README.TXT that will
         help install that particular Microsoft product.

        After installation, simply reboot the machine to enable the LanModem.


  EMM386 Usage with LanModem
  ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ
        Under PCMCIA all I/O cards (including Ethernet and Modem) must
        be initialized as memory cards and then switched into I/O mode
        operation by an enabler software.

        Therefore, the enabler software (such as CARDEN.EXE) must see the
        PC Card memory when it is executed.  DOS extended memory managers
        such as EMM386 and QEMM take control of the PC memory space which
        effects PC Card initialization.

        There are two solutions available:

            1) Run enabler (CARDEN or existing PC Card drivers + CARDEN)
               before EMM386 or QEMM is loaded.

            2) Exclude at least 4K of memory from EMM386's or QEMM's use.
               An exclusion of X=D000-DFFF will work well.There may also
               be additional exclusions for your PCMCIA drivers, don't
               modify these.

  Driver Directory Structure
  ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ
        The network drivers on this disk is organized in the following
        structure. Each directory contains a README.TXT file which
        provides you with detailed installation instructions for drivers
        in that directory:
