  Server Driver for NetWare 4.x 5.x 6.x

  Introduction:
  -------------
  This document describes the procedure to install the NetWare
  server driver for D-Link DGE-528T Gigabit Ethernet Adapter.

  Location of Driver: \NWSERVER\DGE528.LAN

  Installation Procedures :
  -------------------------
  Before you start with the installation process, make sure that
  the Novell NetWare 4.x 5.x 6.x server is properly installed.
  Similarly, your adapter should also be properly installed in your
  server.
  1. Insert the DGE-528T Driver Diskette into drive A and check the
  contents of subdirectory \NWSERVER, It should contain the
  following file :

  DGE528.LAN --> Novell NetWare Server Driver
  DGE528.LDI --> Novell NetWare Server Driver Installation
  Information File

  2. At the NetWare prompt (indicated by the Server name), run the
  INSTALL.NLM program by typing:

  server name: LOAD INSTALL <Enter>

  3. Select "Maintenance/Selective Install" and press <Enter>.

  4. Select " LAN Driver Options (Configure/Load/...) " and press
  <Enter>.

  5. Press the <Ins> key to specify other drivers to install.

  6. Press <F3> and specify the driver path (D:\NWSERVER)
  and press <Enter>.

  7. The DGE528.LAN driver should appear in your choice list for the
  'Select a LAN Driver' field. Choose this driver to start the
  driver loading and binding procedure. This will allow you to
  load and bind all 4 frame types supported by NetWare.

  8. 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.


  Installation Notes:
  -------------------
  1.Installing Multiple LAN Adapters:
  The keyword "SLOT" is provided for multiple LAN adapters in a
  single server by the driver DGE528.LAN. So, add EtherID in LOAD
  commands. For example:

  LOAD DGE528 FRAME=Ethernet_802.2 NAME=LAN_A SLOT=1
  BIND IPX TO LAN_A NET=11
  LOAD DGE528 FRAME=Ethernet_802.2 NAME=LAN_B SLOT=2
  BIND IPX TO LAN_B NET=22

  2. The keyword "MEDIUMTYPE" is provided for specifying adapter's speed
  (10M/100M/1000M), add MEDIUMTYPE in LOAD commands. For example:
  MEDIUMTYPE=AUTO ----> Auto negotiation
  MEDIUMTYPE=1000FULL ----> 1000M FullDuplex
  MEDIUMTYPE=100FULL ----> 100M FullDuplex
  MEDIUMTYPE=100HALF ----> 100M HalfDuplex
  MEDIUMTYPE=10FULL ----> 10M FullDuplex
  MEDIUMTYPE=10HALF ----> 10M HalfDuplex

  LOAD DGE528 FRAME=Ethernet_802.2 NAME=LAN_A SLOT=1 MEDIUMTYPE=AUTO
  BIND IPX TO LAN_A NET=11
