            VIA VT6105 Rhine III Fast Ethernet Adapter Installation
                        for NetWare Server 4.x 5.x 6.x

Introduction:
=============
  The Fast Ethernet 10M/100M ODI Driver for NetWare 4.x, 5.x & 6.x Servers
  confirms to the Novell Open Data-Link Interface (ODI) specification.
  This document shows you how to setup the driver and how to use the enhanced
  functions by setting the custom keywords.


Installation:
=============
  Before starting with the installation process, make sure that the adapter
  is properly installed and configured. You can use the diagnostic program
  in DOS mode to make sure your connection with the network is correct.

  Using Server Install utility:
  -----------------------------
    1) On the server console, execute the NWconfig program:

          NWConfig <Enter>

    2) Choose "Driver Option/Configure network drivers/Select a driver".

    3) Press the <Ins> key to install the driver which is not on the list.

    4) Press <F3> to specify a different path (A:\NWSERVER\SRVRODI.456) and
       press <Enter>.

    5) The FETNWSRV.LAN should appear on the selection list. Press <Enter> to
       choose it.

    6) You can "Select/Modify driver parameters and protocols", and then "Save
       parameters and load driver".

    7) You can add the LOAD and BIND command lines to the AUTOEXEC.NCF file so
       that the LAN driver will be loaded automatically while the server is
       starting up.

  Loading Driver Manually:
  ------------------------
    1) On the server console, load the driver directly, for example:

          LOAD A:\NWSERVER\SRVRODI.456\FETNWSRV FRAME=Ethernet_802.2

    2) Bind with IPX:

          BIND IPX FETNWSRV

    3) You can login the server from a workstation, and then copy FETNWSRV.LAN
       to the directory SYS:\SYSTEM on server. Add the LOAD and BIND command
       lines to AUTOEXEC.NCF file so that the lan driver will be loaded
       automatically while the server starting up next time.

  NOTE:
  -----
    1) Multiple Lan Adapters in a system:
        If you want to install mutiple lan adapters in a server, you have to
        use the keyword, SLOT, to let driver locate the right adapter.
        For example:

            LOAD FETNWSRV SLOT=1 FRAME=Ethernet_802.2 NAME=Lan_1
            BIND IPX TO Lan_1 NET=2001
            LOAD FETNWSRV SLOT=2 FRAME=Ethernet_802.2 NAME=Lan_2
            BIND IPX TO Lan_2 NET=2002

    2) The original keywords "FULLDUPLE", "HALFDUPLE", "SPEED" and "AUTO" are
       still supported.


Configuration Parameters:
=========================

    Custom Keywords:
    ----------------

        FULLDUPLEX ------ This keyword is used to force full duplex mode.
                          (suggest use CONNECTIONTYPE instead of this keyword)

        HALFDUPLEX ------ This keyword is used to force half duplex mode.
                          (suggest use CONNECTIONTYPE instead of this keyword)

        SPEED ----------- This keyword is used to force Line Speed at 10Mbps
                          or 100 Mbps.
                          (suggest use CONNECTIONTYPE instead of this keyword)

        AUTO ------------ This keyword is used to force the chip at
                          auto-negotiation mode.
                          (suggest use CONNECTIONTYPE instead of this keyword)

        CONNECTIONTYPE -- This keyword is used to specify media type.
                            CONNECTIONTYPE=AutoSense
                            CONNECTIONTYPE=10BASET
                            CONNECTIONTYPE=10BASETFD
                            CONNECTIONTYPE=100BASETX
                            CONNECTIONTYPE=100BASETXFD

        FLOW_CONTROL ---- This keyword is used to specify flow control ability.
                            FLOW_CONTROL=DISABLE
                            FLOW_CONTROL=ENABLE
                            FLOW_CONTROL=HARDWARE_DEFAULT   (default)
