	2) INTRODUCTION

	   This directory contains a Novell NetWare ODI workstation
	   device driver (PLINK2.COM) that enables the ParaPort2 Pocket
	   Ethernet adapter to operate in the following Novell NetWare
	   Network Operating Systems.

	   a) NetWare Lite     v1.x
	   b) NetWare          v2.1x and v2.2      (NetWare 286)
	   c) NetWare          v3.11               (NetWare 386)
	   d) NetWare          v4.00
	   e) NetWare          v4.10
	   f) Personal NetWare 
	   g) Novell DOS 7.0

	3) INSTALLATION

	   3.1) For NetWare Lite v1.x

		a) Follow the standard installation procedure described in
		   NetWare manual.
		b) When prompted to select the "Network Interface Card
		   Name" select the option "*OTHER CARDS."
		c) Insert the driver diskette, and press <ESCAPE>.
		d) Select PLINK2.COM from the "Other Driver List" menu.
		e) Reinsert the NetWare Lite Install diskette and
		   complete the installation.

	   3.2) For Novell NetWare workstation.

	   a) Decide the type of network cable that you will use.
	   b) Copy the sample NET.CFG file to your driver C. 
              Refer to section (4) for the detail definition of 
              configuration options. 
              Remember to put the NET.CFG file in the same
	      directory as the ODI device driver.
	   c) Execute LSL.
	   d) Excute PLINK2. Check the hardware configuration options
	      shown by the ODI device driver. If no error messages appear,
	      proceed to step (e).
	   e) Execute IPXODI.
	   f) Execute NETX to connect to the server.

	   3.3) Using the Netware 4.0 DOS Requester with Netware 4.0

	   Netware 4.0 presents a new DOS client software known as the
	   Netware DOS Requester. The DOS Requester takes the place of
	   NETX.COM and offers a more flexible interface into Netware 4.0,
	   as well as Netware 3.x and below. The DOS requester loads
	   the necessary VLM files when VLM.EXE is executed.
	   Follow the steps below to install and configure the DOS
	   Requester, and to login to a Netware 4.0 network.

	   a) Follow the steps (a) to (e) in 3.2.
	      Note that the preparation of net.cfg file is different
	      when using DOS Requester with Netware 4.0.

	   b) Execute VLM.

	4) CONFIGURATION OPTIONS

	   The ParaPort2 ODI workstation device driver PLINK2.COM
	   is simple and easy to use. The device driver has a built-in
	   capability to switch between two different network cables:
	   TPI (twisted pair cable) and BNC (thin coaxial cable).
	   The options available in the NET.CFG file are:

	   a) MEDIA

	      The Media Parameters that are supported by the driver are
	      BNC or TPI. The driver autodetects the network cable used
	      with the adapter.

	   b) PRINT

	      The driver supports Interrupt driven mode and provide printer
	      pass through feature. You can choose to enable it by specifying
	      the keyword PRINT. Default is disabled.
	      e.g.

	      Print

	      This feature will enable you to do printing while accessing to 
	      network.                          
	      

	   c) FRAME

	      The FRAME option allows you to specify the type of frame
	      the transmission packet should be transmitted as.
	      
	      Default is ETHERNET_802.2 
	      
	      e.g., FRAME ETHERNET_802.3

           d) MODE

              This mode allows to select the parallel port mode on the
              machine.

              OPTIONS : A, B and C.
              e.g., MODE A
              
       ***Note*** : Do not use this option unless there is a problem
                    in the workable mode. Under normal circumstances
                    the driver autodetects the parallel port mode.
                    For more information please refer to trouble.txt
                    in DISK 1.

	PURPOSE OF ODINSUP.COM:

	ODI's modular architecture allows you to support NDIS
	protocol stacks. A module called ODINSUP.COM allows NDIS protocol
	stacks to run unmodified over the ODI LSL and talk to an ODI LAN
	driver. At present, multi-vendor network transports like IBM's NetBEUI,
	DEC's LAT or 3COM's XNS can be run over a common Dat-Link (driver)
	specification.

	Below are samples of the required files.

	Net.cfg (sample)

           -----------------------

           1. For Toshiba machines, please insert the following keyword in
              NET.CFG :

              MACHINETYPE TOSHIBA

           2. For machines supporting EPP mode(NOT ECP), please set the parallel
