  Before You Begin
  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.
  1.  Turn off your computer and insert the EtherPCI II card into one  
      of your PC's PCI slots.  
  2.  Turn on your computer and start up Windows NT 4.0.

  3.  Click on Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Networking.

  4.  When you see "Install networking?" click on Yes.

  5.  Select "Wired to the network," then click Next.

  6.  Choose the "Select from list" button.

  7.  Click on the "Have Disk" button.  Put the Linksys EtherPCI II
      disk into drive A:.  Then type A:\WINNT\NT40 and press the Enter key.

      LNEPCI II PCI Adapter will appear in a box.  Click OK, then Next.

      Select the protocols you want to use: TCP/IP, IPX/SPX, and/or
      NetBEUI.  Then click Next.

      Pick the network services you want (we suggest using all of them).
      Then click Next, followed by Next.

  8.  NT 4.0 will need to copy some files to your system.  When 
      asked to insert your NT CD-ROM, put it into your CD-ROM drive
      and enter the drive letter where it is located, followed by
      the letters "i386".  For example, if your CD-ROM is drive D:
      on your system, you would type D:\i386 and press Enter when
      Windows asks you where the CD-ROM is located.

  9.  If NT 4.0 asks you for the Ethernet ID address, click on Ignore
      UNLESS you have TWO EtherPCI II cards in your computer.  If
      you have two, you'll need to enter the Ethernet ID address
      for each one here.

      To get the ID address for an EtherPCI II card, run the Setup
      program on the EtherPCI II disk under the UTILITY directory
      and select "Show Physical Address" from the main menu.  The
      card's address will appear (example: 0 20 78 10 10 c0).

  10. NT will copy the necessary files to your system.  When asked to 
      do so, select the bindings settings that you want, followed by
      Next, and finally, Next to start the network.

  You may be asked to enter the name of your computer at some point.
  Give your computer a unique, easy-to-remember name.  
  If you are asked to enter the domain or workgroup that your
  computer is part of, enter it also.  If you don't have a domain
  or workgroup yet, make up a name for one and enter it.

  11.  Follow the directions on your screen.  Eventually NT will
       ask if you want to restart your computer.  Answer Yes.

  12.  After your computer restarts, enter your username and password.
       When the NT desktop appears, double-click on Network
       Neighborhood.  You should be able to see and access your network.

       The installation is complete.
