    a. Replace the section name [your-mac-module] with [MXNICF_NIF]
    b. Replace the command line "drivername = YOURMAC$" with
       "drivername = MXNICF$"
    c. Replace the command line "bindings = YOUR-MAC-MODULE"
       with "bindings = MXNICF_NIF"
    d. Assign the media type and line speed as used in sample
       PROTOCOL.INI file.
