DOS ODI DRIVERS

SMC provides DOS ODI drivers, SMC1660.COM, that support the following
SMC EZ Card 10 Ethernet ISA network cards:

  o  SMC1660T
  o  SMC1660BT
  o  SMC1660BTA 
     
  
USING EZ LINK

EZ LINK is a single keystroke solution for configuring your 
SMC1660 network cards and computer for use as a DOS client in a
NetWare server environment. 

The SMCINST program may also be used to install other network
drivers, especially if your environment requires greater
customization.

To run EZ LINK:

1. Install and cable your network card to the network.

2. If you are in Windows, exit to the DOS prompt. Do not use the 
   DOS Prompt window.

3. Load other system device drivers, but do not load any other 
   network drivers.

4. Insert the SMC Diskette in a floppy drive and change to that drive.
   For example, if the disk is in drive A, type "A:" and press Enter.

5. At the DOS prompt, type INSTALL <PATH> and press Enter, where
   <PATH> is the directory location where you wish to install the 
   program. When the SMC Program Menu appears, select the
   EZ LINK bar and press Enter. When the EZ LINK screen appears,
   select "YES" to run EZ LINK.

6. A Source Directory Box will appear showing the default drive 
   as A: (if the SMC Diskette is in floppy A: drive). Press Enter.
   If not, insert the SMC Diskette into the A: drive, then press Enter.

7. EZ LINK will:
     o copy the files to the NWCLIENT directory on your c: drive
     o create STARTNET.BAT and NET.CFG files and copy them 
       to the NWCLIENT directory
     o test cards and cable systems 
     o load network drivers 
     o log you on to the nearest Novell server

NOTE:  EZ LINK does not modify your AUTOEXEC.BAT file to enable your  
       workstation to connect to the server when it is rebooted. You
       must add the STARTNET.BAT line manually. Use any text editor 
       to add the following lines to the workstation's AUTOEXEC.BAT
       file, which is located in your workstation's root directory:

       REM            Change directory to DOS ODI driver files.
       C:\
       CD \NWCLIENT
       REM            Load network software.
       STARTNET
       REM            This batch file, STARTNET.BAT, loads the DOS
       REM            ODI driver and Novell network shell program.

       Reboot your workstation. The DOS ODI driver will load automatically
       each time you reboot.

NOTE:  The LASTDRIVE statement in your CONFIG.SYS file will vary,
       depending upon whether you use NETX (LASTDRIVE=E) or 
       VLM (LASTDRIVE=Z).

NOTE:  This program may be run again by typing SMCINST
       and pressing Enter at the DOS prompt while you are
       in the directory where the program is located.


If any step cannot be completed successfully, EZ LINK will display
an ERROR BOX.  Press Enter to go back to the Program Menu, and select 
Hardware Configuration to test the card and the cable.

If you do not connect to the server after the drivers have been loaded
and your cursor is back at the DOS prompt, your frame type probably does
not match the frame type of the server. The default frame type is
Ethernet 802.2. You can correct this by running SMCINST, selecting 
Software Installation, changing to the correct Frame Type and then
pressing F2 to copy files and F10 to Exit back to the Program Menu.
Next, select EZ LINK again. 

This completes the EZ LINK driver installation procedure. 


USING LANALYZER FOR WINDOWS

	
   RXMONSTK.COM is the Receive Monitor Utility for Lanalyzer.
    

	If the monitor type applications you are using appear to
	stop receiving network packets when you install a new LAN
	driver on your workstation, load the RXMONSTK.COM file.
        Be sure to load this file after the LSL.COM driver but
	before the LAN driver. The RXMONSTK.COM file operates as a TSR
	and requires 2684 bytes of memory. You can load only one
	LAN driver when using RXMONSTK.

	The running sequence is:


	   LSL.COM
	   RXMONSTK.COM
	   SMC1660.COM    ---> SMC EZ Card 10 ISA DOS ODI driver
	   IPXODI.COM
		  


USING THE SMCINST SOFTWARE UTILITY TO GET THE ODI DRIVER

Run the SMCINST utility and select the Software Installation bar.
This will allow you to select the Novell ODI driver. The utility 
will copy the driver and Novell files to the directory you select.

       
1. Either run INSTALL or SMCINST and select the Software Installation 
   bar from the Program Menu.

2. When the Software Installation Menu appears, select Novell
   under Vendor, and then, under Network OS, select either:
           NETWARE UNIVERSAL CLIENT (VLM), or
           NETWARE WORKSTATION (NETX)
       (Use the TAB key to move around the screen.)
       (Use the arrow keys to make a selection.)

3. Select the Frame Type under Frame Type selection. (Make sure you
   match this to the frame type of the Novell server.)  The choices
   are Ethernet 802.3, 802.2, II and snap. (Ethernet 802.2
   is the default.)

4. Select the Target Directory where you want the files to be copied.
   The default is C:\NWCLIENT.

5. Press F2 to copy the files. The Source Directory Box will appear.
   The default is A:\.  Insert the floppy disk in drive A, select "OK" 
   and press Enter.  Press Enter twice to end the driver installation.
   Press F10 and then select "Exit" to return to the DOS prompt.  
                                            
NOTE:  A STARTNET.BAT file will be created in the directory that you select.
       The default DIRECTORY is C:\NWCLIENT.  To enable your computer to
       connect to the server on boot, you must add the STARTNET.BAT line to
       your AUTOEXEC.BAT file manually.  Use any text editor to add the
       following lines to the workstation's AUTOEXEC.BAT file, located in 
       your workstation's root directory:

       REM            Change directory to DOS ODI driver files.
       C:\
       CD \NWCLIENT
       REM            Load network software.
       STARTNET
       REM            This batch file, STARTNET.BAT, loads the DOS
       REM            ODI driver and Novell network shell program.

       Reboot your workstation. The DOS ODI driver will automatically
       load each time you reboot.

NOTE:  The LASTDRIVE statement in your CONFIG.SYS file will vary, depending
       upon whether you use NETX (LASTDRIVE=E) or VLM (LASTDRIVE=Z).
NOTE:  Even if you have all frame types loaded in your net.cfg file. The first
       frame type is the one that will be used to connect to the server.
   
INSTALLING MULTIPLE NETWORK CARDS

Use the following procedure to install two network cards in the same 
workstation.

Note:  Follow these instructions ONLY if you are installing more
       than one network card in the same workstation. If you are 
       installing a single card, refer to "SOFTWARE INSTALLATION" 
       earlier in this document.

1. Use any text editor to add the following lines to the NET.CFG
   file: 

   DOS ODI Driver (SMC1660.COM)

      LINK DRIVER SMC1660
          PORT XXX (ISA adapters)
          

      LINK DRIVER SMC1660
          PORT XXX (ISA adapters)
          

   where XXX is the hexadecimal I/O address of the network card. 
   The first card should be the one with the lowest I/O base address.
   (Use SMCINST to obtain each card's I/O base address.)

2. Copy the NET.CFG file to the directory where the workstation's 
   DOS ODI driver files are located.

Filename	Description
------------------------------------------------------------------
LSL.COM 	This file implements the Link Support
		Layer for DOS ODI workstations
		and is the program that is generally
		loaded first when booting. The Link
		Support Layer file enables the
		workstation to communicate over
		several protocols.

IPXODI.COM	This is the Novell protocol stack for
		DOS ODI workstations. It performs
		the same functions as IPX.COM, which
		is used for DOS workstations. However
		it is optional and is loaded after the
		LAN driver. Other protocols can be loaded
		in its place or with it. This is one
		of the key features of the ODI
		environment.

NETX.COM	NetWare Network program.
