README.TXT    Text file about driver installation for the UNIX Server
DE305.TAR     PCI ethernet device drivers packaged for UNIX (in tar format)

    This file is the SCO Unix LLI driver of DE305 EtherWORKS whose version
    is v1.0.0.
    It is a custom installable LLI driver, configured using netconfig.
    The LLI driver requires the following software:
    - DEC's DE305 EtherWORKS ISA adapter
    - ODT 2.0 or higher version, SCO Unix r3.2v or higher version
      (Unix SCO5 excluded).

Installation Procedure
1. Prepare a formatted diskette on any DOS machine.  For example, type:

    C>format a:

Note: Make sure your diskette is free from bad sectors.
      Verify this using the DOS SCANDISK or CHKDSK command.

2. Now login to UNIX system as supervisor (root).

    (Note: Make sure that the current directory is "/"
     using UNIX command - pwd.)

   Please follow the following steps to uncompress the package file:

   >  cd /tmp
   >  mkdir tmp
   >  cd tmp	(then inserting the Package Diskette)
   >  doscp a:\sco\DE305.TAR ./unixdrvr.tar.Z
   >  uncompress unixdrvr.tar  (then inserting the prepared formatted diskette)
   >  #dd if=unixdrvr.tar of=/dev/rfd0135ds18
       (Note: Use another device file name if you use different floppy drive)

   Now the package installation diskette is ready for installing.

3. The following sections describe the configuration of
    the driver. It is suggested that you should perform
    these instructions in the singler-user environment.

    Run custom utility and select the "Install new package"
    option. It will prompt you to insert "DE305 DIGITAL EtherWORKS ISA Adapter
    driver" Floppy Volume 1.

4. After reading drive A, it will show a message prompting
    you to use "netconfig" to add drivers into your system.

5. Run "netconfig". Add the desired chain. The DE305 EtherWORKS adapter
    drivers are called: u5l0, u5l1, u5l2 and u5l3.
    Rember the u5l0 must be configured first, before any other driver
    is configured.

6. When the chain has been configured, select 'q' from the netconfig menu
   and relink the kernel at the prompt.

7. To active the adapter, you must reboot. When the system
    boots, you should see the following message among the
    other configuration messages:

    *u5l0   0x0300-031f     3	-   type=Ethernet   id=08-00-2b-xx-xx-xx

    with the appropriate I/O addresses, IRQ, Adapter-type with its detected
    media-type and the 8 octets of its IEEE address.

8. If you encounter any problems during installation,
    (i.e., an error message appears on screen) call your dealer for assistance.
