  Introduction
  ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ
     Windows NT provides support for PC Card (PCMCIA) compatibile
     systems. For this installation please print out this README.TXT
     using NOTEPAD. Procede according to the instructions below. Do
     not run any of the LanModem's install programs, these are
     unnecessary for the NT environment.

     Before inserting your LanModem PC Card, the system's PCMCIA chipset
     must be enabled and functioning. The PCMCIA chipset is responsible
     for controlling the systems interface for PC Cards. Please consult
     the system's manual or manufacture for use with Windows NT.

     Multifunction PC Cards put a heavy demand on a system's resources.
     Please resolve all system conflicts, errors, and Windows NT issues
     before installing the LanModem.

     Running Windows NT 4.0 with Service Pack 1 may cause some portable
     PCs to hang up on Shutdown or Restart. Please updating to Service
     Pack 3.

     Please have the installation media for Windows NT ready for
     any file request. The following installation does require a
     basic knowledge of the NT environment.
