Installation:
=============

  Before starting with the installation process, make sure that the adapter

  (DIAG.EXE) to make sure your connection with the network is correct.

  Installing driver procedure on DOS LAN Requester :
  -------------------------------------------------
      1) Install DOS Lan Requester to HardDisk with "NO Network Adapter
         Selected" option.

      2) Copy DLKFET.DOS from your Driver diskette to DOS LAN Services
         subdirectory, like C:\NET .

      3) Under DOS LAN Requester subdirectory C:\NET, run INSTALL

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

					                    (suggest use CONNECTIONTYPE instead of this keyword)

        SPEED                           This keyword is used to force the
                                        adapter at 10Mbps or 100Mbps speed.
					                    (suggest use CONNECTIONTYPE instead of this keyword)

        AUTO                            This keyword is used to force the

					                    (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

        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.
