Follow these steps: 1. Insert the Pathworks DOS Client Setup diskette version 4.1 in your floppy drive. 2. Change to that drive and execute the NETSETUP.EXE program. 3. Press [Ctrl]+[F10] twice to change to advanced-operator mode. 4. Follow the screens to select a Transport Protocol. 5. Insert the appropriate diskettes for the selection you made in step 4. 6. Select your network adapter by typing ETHERNET or TOKEN-RING. 7. Select the option (OTHER NDIS) adapters. 8. When prompted for the DRIVE:\PATH\FILENAME for the NDIS driver, type: A:\NDIS\DOS\ELNK3.DOS 9. When prompted for the full DRIVE:\PATH of the PROTOCOL.INI fragment, type: A:\NDIS\DOS 10.
