    Custom Keywords:
    ----------------
        FULLDUPLEX                      This keyword is used to enable full

        SPEED                           This keyword is used to force the
	                                    adapter at 10Mbps or 100Mbps speed.

                                        (suggest use CONNECTIONTYPE instead of this keyword)

        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 :

                                        the value of this keyword, FLOWCTRL , is ENALBE or
                                        DISABLE. It just enables or disable flow control
                                        ability according your setting.

        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.
