   Server Driver for NetWare 3.12

   This document describes the procedure to install the NetWare v3.12
   server driver for ALN325 Fast Ethernet adapter.

   Location of Driver:     \NWSERVER\ALN325.LAN

   Installation Procedure:
      Before you start with the installation  process,  make sure that
      the Novell NetWare v3.12 server is properly installed.
      Similarly, your adapter should also be properly installed in your

      1. Please rename c:\server.312 directory to c:\nwserver
      2. For Netware 3.12 only, you copy the LOADER.EXE and LSWAP.EXE to
         c:\nwserver directory and run the LSWAP.EXE to update the loader
         segment in the server.exe file. This is require by Novell in order
         for the NBI/MSM to function correctly.

      1. These files can be obtained from ALN325 driver disk subdirectory


      2. If you can log into the server as a supervisor , copy ALN325.LAN
         relative files from the ALN325 Driver Diskette subdirectory
         A:\NWSERVER into the NetWare 386 subdirectory SYSTEM of your
         server. (If some files exists, rename the existing files in the
         SYSTEM subdirectory).

      3. When the NetWare server prompt appears (indicated by a colon),load
         your server driver. Simply type:

         : LOAD NBI31X <Entet>
         : LOAD ALN325 <Enter>

         or, you can directly load file from ALN325 driver disk :

         : LOAD A:\NWSERVER\312\NBI31X <Enter>
         : LOAD A:\NWSERVER\ALN325 <Enter>

      4. Bind IPX to the adapter driver. At the NetWare server prompt

         :BIND IPX TO ALN325 <Enter>

      5. After pressing <Enter> the computer prompts you for the Network
         Number. For details on how to assign this number,please consult
         your NetWare Server Installation Manual.

      6. Add the load and bind statements you require to the server's
         AUTOEXEC.NCF file so that the LAN driver will load automatically
         each time the server starts up.

      1. Installing Multiple LAN Adapters:
         The keyword  "SLOT"  is  provided for multiple LAN adapters in a
         single server by the driver ALN325.LAN.  So, add  "SLOT" in LOAD
         commands. For example:

         LOAD ALN325 FRAME=Ethernet_802.2 NAME=LAN_A SLOT=1
         BIND IPX TO LAN_A NET=11
         LOAD ALN325 FRAME=Ethernet_802.2 NAME=LAN_B SLOT=2
         BIND IPX TO LAN_B NET=22

      2. The keyword  "SPEED"  is  provided for specifying adapter's speed
         (10M/100M), add SPEED in LOAD commands. For example:

         LOAD ALN325 FRAME=Ethernet_802.2 NAME=LAN_A SLOT=1 SPEED=100
         BIND IPX TO LAN_A NET=11

      3. Installing One LAN adapter with Multiple Frame Types:
         When  binding multiple frame types to one adapter, enter a LOAD
         and BIND statement for each frame type. Each LOAD statement will
         use a different network number is required on the bind statement.
         You need  to supply  a name on each load line in order to avoid
         being  prompted  for which  board to bind IPX to. If you do not
         have the name option in the AUTOEXEC.NCF , it will not  execute
         completely without user intervention.  Example:

           LOAD ALN325 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.3 NAME=IEE8023
           BIND IPX TO IEE8023 NET=11111
           LOAD ALN325 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.2 NAME=IEE8022
           BIND IPX TO LAN8022 NET=22222

   If problems occur during the binding process, your  screen will prompt
   you with error  messages.  Please refer to your NetWare 386 manual for
   details on these messages.
