Driver Installation for Novell NetWare OS/2 ODI

Before you start with  the installation  process  make
sure you have the following:

a.   Digital Driver Diskette
c.   Novell NetWare OS/2 WORKSTATION OS/2 Utility - 1
d.   Novell NetWare OS/2 WORKSTATION OS/2 Utility - 2
e.   Novell NetWare OS/2 WORKSTATION OS/2 Utility - 3

Installation Procedure
You need this file to acquire network service after installing OS/2
Requester and Utilities.

DE305.SYS    ----   supported by Digital

1. The directory OS2ODI contains only an OS/2 driver,(DE305.SYS).
   This driver must be used with the OS/2 requester to establish
   networking operations.

2. Make sure  that the workstation on which you want to
   install the Requester is a 286 or 386 machine that
   will run  OS/2 or Extended Edition OS/2. Please refer to
   'Novell NetWare Requester for OS/2' documentation for
   a detailed  Requester and Utilities installation guide.

3. After installation, copy the DE305.SYS file into the NETWARE
   subdirectory of your hard disk.

4. Add or replace the DE305.SYS file in the CONFIG.SYS file.
   Make sure the it comes before the IPX.SYS command line.
   The following shows the corresponding command sequence:

   DEVICE=C:\NETWARE\LSL.SYS	      ; OS/2 Requester supported
   DEVICE=C:\NETWARE\DDAEMON.SYS      ; OS/2 Requester supported
   DEVICE=C:\NETWARE\DE305.SYS	      ; Digital supported
   DEVICE=C:\NETWARE\IPX.SYS	      ; OS/2 Requester supported

5. Reboot your system to get service of network.

Installation note:
You can bind several frame types to the IPX protocol to support
various configurations. Include this in the Link Driver DE305
section of the NET.CFG file. A sample is shown below:

	Link Driver DE305

	frame Ethernet_802.3
	frame Ethernet_802.2
	frame Ethernet_II
	frame Ethernet_snap

	protocol IPX 00 Ethernet_802.3
