 *      THIS VERSION OF THE FLASH UPDATE PROGRAM GIVES THE OPTION OF  *
 *      REPLACING (OR ELIMINATING) THE DEFAULT "IBM" IMAGE THAT IS    *
 *      DISPLAYED DURING SYSTEM START UP.  THE USER CAN SUBSTITUTE    *
 *      A 16 COLOR WINDOWS BITMAP (.BMP) TO REPLACE THE DEFAULT       *
 *      IMAGE.  SOME GUIDELINES FOR THESE IMAGES INCLUDE:             *
 *                                                                    *
 *      1. SIMPLE DESIGNS (THE IMAGE WILL BE COMPRESSED AND COMPLEX   *
 *         IMAGES DON'T COMPRESS WELL...)                             *
 *      2. NO LARGER THAN 50K FOR EITHER IMAGE                        *
 *      3. KEEP IN MIND THAT THE AMOUNT OF SPACE AVAILABLE IN THE     *
 *         FLASH TO STORE REPLACEMENT IMAGES MAY VARY FROM RELEASE    *
 *         TO RELEASE AND BY LANGUAGE SELECTION.  I.E. AN IMAGE THAT  *
 *         FITS IN A U.S. ENGLISH FLASH MAY NOT FIT IN A GERMAN       *
 *         FLASH.                                                     *

                         Flash Changes
                         Models 6561 and 6591

NZJTxxA is the flash diskette level.
NZKTxxA is the flash image level. (BIOS)
NOTE: All changes carry forward. That is, if a change is added in 01, it is
      also in 02, 03 etc.

CHANGES for NZKT/NZJT20A

	Initial release for first customer ship.

Changes for NZKT/NZJT21A

	- Some PCI Lan attachement cards cause system to hang on warm boot.

	- Store systems controller hangs system when "Dump" switch on controller card
	  is pressed.

	- Processor speed shown incorrectly in Setup program.		

	- System will not resume from low power state when parallel port activity is
	  detected.

Changes for NZKT/NZJT22A

	- Bios Setup screens display wrong IDE hard disk size if drive is larger
          than 8.4 gig.

	- Downloading a DOS image from a network using a ISA network attachment
          card hangs.

Changes for NZKT/NZJT23A

	- Holding down a key on the keyboard during POST occasionally locks system.

	- Fixed problem in flash update utility where the program would hang while
          reprograming the flash module.  (If this happened on a earlier
          version,the flash could be recovered by setting the flash recovery
          jumper to "recover" and the clear CMOS jumper to "clear" and
          re-running the flash update procedure.

	- Fixed problem of network cards becoming unresponsive to the network
          (for example, not responding to a "Ping" request) when the system was
          in an APM power saving mode in OS/2 and Windows 95.
          (Note: in Windows 95, this fix only applies when the system has
          entered low power mode via the inactivity timer.  If you enter low
          power mode via the suspend button in the start menu, network cards
          may still be unresponsive to network activity.)

Changes for NZKT/NZJT24A

	- System powers off after clearing CMOS

	- Network cards loose touch with network under Windows 95 after a "Suspend"
          power management operation.

Changes for NZKT/NZJT25A Not released

	- Changes to support ACPI in Windows 98

	- Error message when running with a single 8 Meg. DIMM

	- Hangs during restart with APM enabled

	- Print screen in DOS only prints first 25 lines of screen

	- Added setup option to disable ECC checking in cache on processors
          that have ECC L2 cache.

	- Added support for Intel Celeron processor

Changes for NZKT/NZJT26A Not released

        - Add LS120/Iomega Zip boot support (6561/6591).  Use the Microsoft W95 driver
          if using LS120 device.

          Procedure for Removing the Intel BM IDE driver from 6561/6591 Win95 OSR2.x Preload
          ===============================================================================


          Background:
          -----------
          The Intel BM IDE driver supports DMA and Ultra-DMA operation of Hard files and
          CD ROM devices.  The Native IDE driver in Win95 OSR2.x supports DMA, but not
          Ultra-DMA operation.  The Intel driver has several shortcomings, including
          not supporting LS120 devices.  The Native Win95 OSR2.x driver seems to work
          fine with LS120 devices.  The latest system performance tests indicate that there
          is little or not system performance penalty for using the Win95 OSR2.x native
          driver versus the Intel Busmaster Driver.



          To Remove the Intel Bus Master Driver:
          --------------------------------------


          1.  Obtain the Intel Win95 Busmaster driver (Z23T11A) on a diskette from
              the RTC, or the IBM PC web site  (http://www.pc.ibm.com)

          2.  Boot the 6561/6591 system with the Win95 preload installed. Ensure all
              devices are running, and that there are no conflicts in Device Manager.

          3.  Insert the Intel Busmaster driver diskette into the A: drive

          4.  Open a MSDOS window, and type    a:setup     and press Enter

          5.  The install Wizard will start, press the   NEXT   button in the
              Welcome panel.

          6.  Press the    DE-INSTALL   button in the Select Components panel.

          7.  The driver will get de-installed, and you will be asked to restart,
              press   OK   button, and remove the diskette from the A: drive.

          8.  When the system reboots, the Update Device Driver Wizard will appear.
              Do NOT insert the Intel Busmaster driver diskette !
              Press   NEXT  button, and the Wizard should find the native Win95
              OSR2.x driver  ' Intel 82371AB PCI Bus Master IDE Controller' on the
              hard file.  Press the   NEXT   button.

          9.  You will be asked to restart your system, press  YES  button.  If you
              have more than one IDE device in your system, you may be asked to restart
              more than once.


          The Intel Busmaster driver has now been removed, and the native Win95 OSR2.x
          driver is installed.  The Win95 OSR2.x driver is DMA capable, but
          it usually defaults to NOT DMA operation.  DMA will improve the system performance
          by allowing the device to transfer data at higher speed, and by reducing the load
          on the processor.



          To ensure DMA is enabled:
          -------------------------

          1.  Open Device Manager

          2.  Click on the + box next to Disk Drives.  Select the hard disk drive, and
              click on the Properties box.  Select the Settings tab. There should be
              several check boxes, and one of these is labeled  DMA; check this box,
              and click OK.  You may be asked to restart your system, click on YES.

          3.  If you have a CD ROM, click on the + box next to CDROM. Select the CD ROM,
              and click on the Properties box.  Select the Settings tab. There should be
              several check boxes, and one of these is labeled  DMA; check this box,
              and click OK.  You may be asked to restart your system, click on YES.

          4.  Click  OK  to close Device manager.
