   Server Driver for NetWare 3.12

   Introduction:
   -------------
   This document describes the procedure to install the NetWare v3.12
   server driver for REALTEK RTL8139 Fast Ethernet adapter.

   Location of Driver:     \NWSERVER\312\RTSSRV.LAN


   Installation Procedure:
   -----------------------
      Before you start with the installation  process,  make sure that
      the Novell NetWare v3.12 server is properly installed.
      Similarly, your adapter should also be properly installed in your
      server.

      1. These files can be obtained from Realtek driver disk subdirectory
         A:\NWSERVER\312

         NBI31X.NLM
         MSM31X.NLM
         ETHERTSM.NLM
         RTSSRV.LAN

      2. If you can log into the server as a supervisor , copy RTSSRV.LAN
         relative files from the Realtek Driver Diskette subdirectory
         A:\NWSERVER\312 into the NetWare 386 subdirectory SYSTEM of your
         server. (If some files exists, rename the existing files in the
         SYSTEM subdirectory).

      3. When the NetWare server prompt appears (indicated by a colon),load
         your server driver. Simply type:

         : LOAD NBI31X <Entet>
         : LOAD RTSSRV <Enter>

         or, you can directly load file from Realtek RTL8139 driver disk :

         : LOAD A:\NWSERVER\312\NBI31X <Enter>
         : LOAD A:\NWSERVER\312\MSM31X <Enter>
         : LOAD A:\NWSERVER\312\ETHERTSM <Enter>
         : LOAD A:\NWSERVER\312\RTSSRV <Enter>

      4. Bind IPX to the adapter driver. At the NetWare server prompt
         ,type:

         :BIND IPX TO RTSSRV <Enter>

      5. After pressing <Enter> the computer prompts you for the Network
         Number. For details on how to assign this number,please consult
         your NetWare Server Installation Manual.

      6. Add the load and bind statements you require to the server's
         AUTOEXEC.NCF file so that the LAN driver will load automatically
         each time the server starts up.


   NOTES:
   ------
      1. Installing Multiple LAN Adapters:
         The keyword  "SLOT"  is  provided for multiple LAN adapters in a
         single server by the driver RTSSRV.LAN.  So, add  "SLOT" in LOAD
         commands. For example:

         LOAD RTSSRV FRAME=Ethernet_802.2 NAME=LAN_A SLOT=1
         BIND IPX TO LAN_A NET=11
         LOAD RTSSRV FRAME=Ethernet_802.2 NAME=LAN_B SLOT=2
         BIND IPX TO LAN_B NET=22

      2. The keyword "MEDIUMTYPE" is provided for specifying adapter's speed
         (10M/100M) and duplex mode(half/full), add MEDIUMTYPE in
         LOAD commands.

         MEDIUMTYPE=AUTO    :  AUTO NEGOTIATION
         MEDIUMTYPE=10HALF  :  10M  SPPED AND HALFDUPLEX MODE
         MEDIUMTYPE=10FULL  :  10M  SPPED AND FULLDUPLEX MODE
         MEDIUMTYPE=100HALF :  100M SPPED AND HALFDUPLEX MODE
         MEDIUMTYPE=100FULL :  100M SPPED AND FULLDUPLEX MODE

         For example:

         LOAD RTSSRV FRAME=Ethernet_802.2 NAME=LAN_A SLOT=1
         MEDIUMTYPE=100FULLBIND IPX TO LAN_A NET=11

      3. Installing One LAN adapter with Multiple Frame Types:
         When  binding multiple frame types to one adapter, enter a LOAD
         and BIND statement for each frame type. Each LOAD statement will
         use a different network number is required on the bind statement.
         You need  to supply  a name on each load line in order to avoid
         being  prompted  for which  board to bind IPX to. If you do not
         have the name option in the AUTOEXEC.NCF , it will not  execute
         completely without user intervention.  Example:

           LOAD RTSSRV FRAME=ETHERNET_802.3 NAME=IEE8023
           BIND IPX TO IEE8023 NET=11111
           LOAD RTSSRV FRAME=ETHERNET_802.2 NAME=IEE8022
           BIND IPX TO LAN8022 NET=22222

   If problems occur during the binding process, your  screen will prompt
   you with error  messages.  Please refer to your NetWare 386 manual for
   details on these messages.
