      3Com NDIS 2.01 driver installation notes for IBM LAN Server

 This EtherDisk diskette contains Ethernet driver import files for
 IBM LAN Server.

 IBM LAN Server 3.0

   IBM LAN Server 3.0 contains an installer for both OS/2 (LAPS) and DOS
   (DXMAID).  Both of these installation utilities fully support OEM network
   adapter driver import capability.

 DOS Installation

   Run the DXMAID installer from the IBM LAN Support diskette.  Use the
   defaults from the first menu.  The second menu prompts you to enter the
   drive and path for the import diskette.  Remove the LAN Support diskette,
   put the 3Com EtherDisk diskette in the drive, and type A:\NDIS\DOS for the
   drive and path.  The installer will pause after it copies the files needed
   from the EtherDisk diskette.  Place the LAN Support diskette back in the
   drive, and continue the installation.

 OS/2 Installation

   Run the LAPS installer from the LAN Adapter and Protocol diskette.  From
   the second menu, select the Install option.  LAPS then installs itself and
   other files, and returns to the second menu.  Select Install again.  On the
   next menu, LAPS prompts for a drive and path for installation.  Remove the
   LAPS diskette and insert the EtherDisk diskette in the drive.  Type
   A:\NDIS\OS2 for the drive and path.  LAPS will copy the needed files from
   the EtherDisk diskette.  When the acknowledge message appears at the end of
   the copy, reinsert the LAPS diskette and continue with the installation.

 IBM LAN Server 2.0

   LAN Server 2.0 is not as sophisticated as LAN Server 3.0.  Installation can
   be done successfully, but manual intervention is required.  In all cases,
   the user is required to edit files.  For OS/2, the E editor is fine.  For
   DOS, use either EDLIN or EDIT.

 DOS Installation

   Run the DXMAID installer from the LAN Support diskette.  Specify the
   Ethernet adapter installation from the menu.  When DXMAID is completed, do
   the following to complete the installation.

   1. Copy the EtherLink III NDIS driver to the hard disk.  Type:


   2. Edit the CONFIG.SYS file.

      a. Change the line:

         device = \LANMAN\PROTMAN.DOS


         device = \LANMAN\PROTMAN.DOS /I:\LANMAN

      b. Change the line:

         device = XX.DOS


         device = \LANMAN\ELNK3.DOS

      c. Save the file and exit the editor.

   3. Enter the LANMAN subdirectory.  Type:


   4. Rename the PROTOCOL.INI file to save it.  Type:


   5. Append the PROTOCOL.INI fragment from the 3Com EtherDisk diskette.  Type:


   6. Edit the new PROTOCOL.INI file.

      a. Four lines after the line [ETHERNET], change the line:

         Bindings = IBMAC


         Bindings = ELNK3

      b. Two lines before the line:

         ;3C509 3Com EtherLink III adapter

         change the blank line to


      c. Save the file and exit the editor.

   The installation is complete.  The LAN Support program activates the next
   time the machine boots.

 OS/2 Installation

   1. Insert the IBM OS/2 Requester Diskette #1 and run the LAPS installation
      program.  Select Advanced Installation on the second menu.

   2. Insert the OS/2 Protocol and Drivers diskette when the prompt appears.
      After LAPS has completed copying the files from the Protocol and Drivers
      diskette, select the Copy Additional Drivers option from the next menu.
      The next menu prompts for the drive and path for the additional drivers.

   3. Insert the EtherDisk diskette and type A:\NDIS\OS2.  LAPS copies the
      appropriate 3Com adapter files to the hard disk and returns to the
      options menu.

   4. Select the Configure Workstation option.  The next menu prompts for
      adapter and protocol options.  In the adapters window, page down until
      the 3Com EtherLink Family OS/2 menu item appears.  Select this item and
      continue the installation.  When the installation is complete, exit the

   The installer presents a message that the system needs to be rebooted for
   the changes to take effect.  However, you must complete the following
   steps before you reboot the computer.

   1.  Edit the CONFIG.SYS file.  After the line:


       insert the line:


   2.  Save the file and exit the editor.

   3.  Reboot the computer, and the OS/2 requester will activate.
