   Remote boot to Windows NT server

   Introduction:
   -------------
   This document describes the procedures to install RPL server on Windows
   NT server.


   Install the NT server 3.5, 3.51, 4.0 RPL server:
   ------------------------------------------
   1. Install the Remoteboot Service on the NT Server.

   1.1 Choose Control Panel, Network, Add Software, Remoteboot Service,
       put NT server CD or disk, to install Remoteboot Service.

     Note:
       To install RPL server, you must install DLC and NetBEUI protocols
       in your NT server first.

   2. Install MS-DOS Files for Remoteboot workstation.

      Copy all the MS-DOS 6.22 files to
                           ----> \\systemroot\RPL\RPLFILES\BINFILES\DOS622
         copy c:\dos\*.* \\systemroot\RPL\RPLFILES\BINFILES\DOS622
         attrib -s -h c:\io.sys
         attrib -s -h c:\msdos.sys
         copy c:\io.sys \\systemroot\RPL\RPLFILES\BINFILES\DOS622
         copy c:\msdos.sys \\systemroot\RPL\RPLFILES\BINFILES\DOS622
         attrib +s +h c:\io.sys
         attrib +s +h c:\msdos.sys

   3. Create Remoteboot configuration for new adapter

   3.1 Copy the MS-DOS device driver(NDIS2) for the Ethernet adapter to the
       \\systemroot\RPL\BBLOCK\NDIS directory.
       for example: RTSND.DOS NDIS2 driver for the PCI adapter.

   3.2 Create the directory  \\systemroot\RPL\BBLOCK\NETBEUI\PCI  and
       create  RTL8139.CNF,  PROTOCOL.INI  files in this directory. The
       templates for RTL8139.CNF and PROTOCOL.INI are stored at the 
       \BOOTROM directory in this driver diskette.

        Sample for RTL8139.CNF:

          ; DOS on PCI Ethernet
          BASE D0H
          RPL BBLOCK\RPLBOOT.SYS
          LDR BBLOCK\RPLSTART.COM ~
          DAT BBLOCK\NETBEUI\PCI\PROTOCOL.INI
          DRV BBLOCK\RPLDISK.SYS ~ ~ ~
          EXE BBLOCK\RPLPRO1.COM ~ 2 ~
          EXE BBLOCK\I13.COM ~ ~ ~
          EXE BBLOCK\RPLBIND2.EXE ~ ~
          EXE BBLOCK\PROTMAN.EXE ~ ~
          EXE BBLOCK\RPLBIND1.EXE ~ ~
          ;DRV BBLOCK\IPXNDIS.DOS ~ ~ ~
          ;DRV BBLOCK\TCPDRV.DOS /I:C:\LANMAN.DOS ~ ~
          EXE BBLOCK\NETBEUI\NETBEUI.EXE ~ 10 ~
          DRV BBLOCK\NDIS\RTSND.DOS ~ ~ ~
          DRV BBLOCK\PROTMAN.DOS /I:C:\LANMAN.DOS ~ M

        Sample for PROTOCOL.INI:

          [protman]
            drivername = protman$
            dynamic = yes
            priority = netbeui

          [netbeui_xif]
            drivername = netbeui$
            bindings = rtl8139_nif
            names = 6
            ncbs = 12
            packets = 20
            pipeline = 10
            sessions = 6
            stacksize = 512
            lanabase = 0

          [xnsnb_xif]
            drivername = xnsnb$
            bindings = rtl8139_nif
            load = xnsnb[cbr]
            lanabase = 1

          [xnstp_xif]
            drivername = xnstp$
            bindings = rtl8139_nif
            load = xnstp[ub]
            lanabase = 1

          [tcpip_xif]
            drivername = TCPIP$
            disabledhcp = (TCPIP_NO_DHCP)
            ipaddress0 = (TCPIP_ADDRESS)
            subnetmask0 = (TCPIP_SUBMASK)
            defaultgateway0 = (TCPIP_GATEWAY)
            tcpsegmentsize = 1450
            tcpwindowsize = 1450
            nbsessions = 6
            load = tcptsr[c],tinyrfc[c],emsbfr[cr]
            unload = "unloadt /notsr[dc]"
            bindings = rtl8139_nif
            lanabase = 1

          [ipx_xif]
            drivername = ipx$
            load = ipxmark[u],ipx[u]
            unload = ipxrel[c]
            bindings = rtl8139_nif
            lanabase = 1

          [msdlc_xif]
            drivername = msdlc$
            bindings = rtl8139_nif
            load = msdlc[ub]
            unload = msdlc[u]

          [pci_nif]
            drivername = RTSND$

   3.3 Use RPLCMD utility to add a bblock record for new adapter.

       Under MS-DOS Prompt, type <1>. NET START RemoteBoot
                                 <2>. RPLCMD

   3.4 You should follow the direction displayed on the screen.

          DirName4=

   3.5 Shutdown Windows NT server, and reboot it.

   4. Login to NT server as Administrator.

   5. Start RemoteBoot service and Remoteboot manager

   5.1 Under MS-DOS Prompt, type "NET START Remoteboot"

   5.2 In Network administrator, Remoteboot Manager
        1.Choose Remoteboot, New Profile, to create an PCI Profile Name.
        2.Add new workstation for this Ethernet adapter and choose PCI
          Profile file.

    Note:
        If the Node ID of workstation does not match with your Profile file,
        you can use "Convert Adapters" in Remoteboot menu of Remoteboot
        Manager to configure or cteate the Profile file.
