  A. Compiler command:
          "gcc -DMODULE -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux/net/inet -Wall 
           -Wstrict-prototypes -O6 -c dmfe.c"
          "gcc -DMODULE -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux/net -Wall 
           -Wstrict-prototypes -O6 -c dmfe.c"

  B. The following steps teach you how to active PRO200WL board:

        1. Used the upper compiler command to compile dmfe.c

        2. Insert dmfe module into kernel
           "insmod dmfe"        ;;Auto Detection Mode (Suggest)
           "insmod dmfe mode=0" ;;Force 10M Half Duplex
           "insmod dmfe mode=1" ;;Force 100M Half Duplex
           "insmod dmfe mode=4" ;;Force 10M Full Duplex
           "insmod dmfe mode=5" ;;Force 100M Full Duplex

        3. Config a PRO200WL network interface
           "ifconfig eth0"
                          ^^^^^^^^^^^ Your IP address

        4. Active the IP routing table. For some distributions, it is not
           necessary. You can type "route" to check.

           "route add -net eth0"

        5. Well done. Your PRO200WL Adapter actived now.

   C. The driver has been verified in the following kernals:
         kernel version 2.2.5
         RedHat6.0 kernel version 2.2.5-15
         kernel version 2.2.12
         kernel version 2.3.18
