   Packet Driver

   Introduction:
   -------------
   This document describes the procedure to setup the Packet driver for
   REALTEK RTS8139 PCI ethernet card.

   Location of Driver:     \RTSPKT\RTSPKT.COM

   Sample Configuration Files:
   ---------------------------
      AUTOEXEC.BAT
        RTSPKT 0x60

   Notes:
   ------
     1.  Load the packet driver using the software interrupt and any
         optional switches if required.

         Usage: RTSPKT [options] <software_int_no>

         Example: RTSPKT -i 0x7e

         The only required  parameter is the software  interrupt.  A packet
         driver needs to have a software interrupt assigned to it for other
         programs to access it. The recommended interrupt 0x7e. If you need
         any of the  options  listed below,  place them before the software
         interrupt on the command line.

         -i - Force driver to report itself as 802.3 instead of Ethernet II.
         -d - Delayed initialization.  Used for diskless booting
         -n - NetWare conversion.  Converts 802.3 packets into 8137 packets
         -w - Windows hack, obsoleted by winpkt
         -p - Promiscuous mode disable
         -h - Help
         -u - Uninstall
         -f - Line Speed = Fast ehternet 100Mbps
         -e - Line Speed = Ethernet 10Mbps

      3. Type command,C:\RTSPKT 0x60, the screen will appear following
         message:

         System: [345]86 processor, PCI bus, Two 8259s
         Packet driver software interrupt is 0x60
         Interrupt number is 0x9
         I/O port is 0x6100
         My Ethernet address is 52:54:4C:29:29:AD

      4. Installing Multiple LAN Adapters:

         If there are multiple network cards on the main board. the user
         run RTSPKT 0x60 directly, then the screen will display :

         Packet driver for RTS8139, PCI version 1.00
         Copyright 1997 (c), Realtek Semiconductor Inc.

         There are 2 network cards on your main board :
         Card 1. IRQ= 0x9  I/O= 0x6100  NodeID= 52:54:4C:29:29:AD
         Card 2. IRQ= 0xA  I/O= 0x6000  NodeID= 52:54:4C:29:29:64
         Please select a Card No.(1-2): 1

         System: [345]86 processor, PCI bus, Two 8259s
         Packet driver software interrupt is 0x60
         Interrupt number is 0x9
         I/O port is 0x6100
         My Ethernet address is 52:54:4C:29:29:AD
