  ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  Thank you for purchasing your EtherPCI LAN Card II from Linksys.  The 
  instructions below explain how to set up the card's software drivers 
  for use with your network software.
  
  Be sure to read the User Guide before installing your card.  In addition,
  please make note of these hardware & software guidelines:
 
    *   Plug-and-play computers have a number of expansion slots inside.
        Each slot has a pre-assigned interrupt (IRQ) and I/O address (MEM). 
        When the Linksys LAN Card is inserted into a PCI slot, the PC's 
        BIOS should automatically assign a unique IRQ & MEM value for the 
        network card. 
 
        In most cases, the card should work fine using the pre- 
        assigned IRQ and I/O addresses.  Occasionally, however, the 
        card may have an IRQ conflict with other adapters in the system. 
        If this happens, you will need to change the IRQ setting of the 
        LAN Card manually.  There are three possibilities: 
 
                - Your PCI may not allow you to change the IRQ value(s) of 
                  the PCI slot(s).  In this case, you will ONLY be able to 
                  use the IRQ & MEM values that have been pre-assigned to 
                  each slot. 
 
                - You may be able to change the IRQ & MEM values for a given 
                  PCI slot by setting jumpers on your PC's mother board. 
                  Please refer to your PC's motherboard user guide for 
                  specific instructions. 
 
                - Your PC may allow you to change the IRQ & MEM values for 
                  a given PCI slot by accessing the PC's BIOS setup menu. 
                  Please refer to your PC's user guide for specific details. 

                  Although it is advisable to set a unique IRQ address for 
                  each PCI slot, depending on your PC, you may or may not 
                  be able to do so.
  
  Setup 
  ----------------------------------------------------------------- 
  The A:\NWCLIENT\OS2 directory contains all of the drivers needed
  for ODI and/or IPX network communications.  Because the drivers are
  for DOS only, they will automatically default to a frame type of
  802.2, although this can be changed in the NET.CFG configuration
  file.  Consult your Novell NetWare user guides for more information
  about NET.CFG files and frame types.

  ODI Driver program allows you to run multiple protocol stacks. 
  It also allows you to install up to two network adapters in a 
  workstation. ODI driver supports node address, protocol and frame 
  options.  You can use these options to create your own NET.CFG file. 
  For detailed info on Keywords, please refer to Novell manual "NetWare 
  ODI shell for DOS - NET.CFG options". 
  
  Installation 
  1. Start up OS/2.
  2. Double-click the 'Novell' icon on the OS/2 desktop.
     If you cannot find the 'Novell' icon on the OS/2 desktop, you must 
     install it first from the CD-ROM of the Netware 4.x Operation System.
  3. Double-click the 'Install' icon in the 'Novell' window.
  4. Choose 'Requester on Workstation' from the 'Installation' menu.

       A:\NWCLIENT\OS2

     and press Enter or click OK.
     
  6. Select 'Edit CONFIG.SYS and Copy All Files' in the 'Requester
     Installation' window, and then press the <OK> button.
  7. Type the driver name LNEPCI2.SYS in the 
     'Step1:Choose the ODI LAN Driver'window, and then press the 
     <Continue> button.
  8. Follow the instructions and finish the installation.
  9. If there is more than one LNEPCI II card in your system, you must 
     add the following statements to the NET.CFG file:
                
                Link Driver LNEPCI
                        port    d000            -> selected LNEPCI II card
