  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:
  
    *   When loading the EMM386.EXE program in your computer's CONFIG.SYS, 
        you MUST use version MS-DOS 6.22 or above.  If you load an older 
        EMM386.EXE program (below DOS 6.22), your computer will hang up while 
        loading the network driver. 
 
    *   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.
