                EtherDisk Diskette for the EtherLink/MC Adapters

  The EtherDisk diskette provides you with the necessary software, utilities, 
  and documentation to use 3Com's EtherLink/MC adapters with various network
  operating systems (NOSs).  The diskette also includes the diagnostic
  program and additional files containing user information.  The adapter guide 
  packaged with the adapter gives important information on adapter 
  installation and use.  It should be used together with the EtherDisk 

  Before you install the network drivers, make sure that you: 

      -  Install your adapter
      -  Configure the computer (if applicable)
      -  Run the diagnostic program
      -  Connect to the network

  To run the diagnostic program or update the network drivers, use the Menu
  Program on the EtherDisk diskette.  To access the program, type MENU at the 
  prompt.  Refer to the adapter guide or the text files in this directory  
  for more information.   

  This directory contains additional information about the EtherLink/MC
  adapter family.  The following files are included:
