     13. Exit the INSTALL module.

      Installation Notes:
      -------------------
      1. Installing One LAN Adapter with Multiple Frame Types:
         When binding multiple frame types to one adapter, each LOAD
         statement will specify a different frame type.
           LOAD ALN320 SLOT=2 FRAME=Ethernet_802.2 NAME=ALN320_1_E82
           BIND IPX ALN320_1_E82 NET=CA659B99
           LOAD ALN320 SLOT=2 FRAME=Ethernet_802.3 NAME=ALN320_1_E83
           BIND IPX ALN320_1_E83 NET=D4567899
           LOAD ALN320 SLOT=2 FRAME=Ethernet_II NAME=ALN320_1_EII
           BIND IPX ALN320_1_EII NET=12345677
           LOAD ALN320 SLOT=2 FRAME=Ethernet_SNAP NAME=ALN320_1_ESP
           BIND IPX ALN320_1_ESP NET=12336677

      2. Installing Multiple LAN Adapters with Multiple Frame Type:
         You should insert all the LAN adapters into your system,
         and connect the cable (UTP) to the adapter, ignore
         the network number which segment is, just connect it.
         Follow the procedures above, and look at the procedure 9,
         give a correct "Slot" number for each adapter.For example,
         you can give "1" for the first adapter which slot number
         is 1, "2" for the second adapter which slot number is 2, etc.

      3. Installing Multiple LAN Adapters with Multiple Frame Types:
         In the situation, the SLOT and Frame types have to be specified.
         The following is an AUTOEXEC.NCF file example:
           LOAD ALN320 SLOT=2 FRAME=Ethernet_802.2 NAME=ALN320_1_E82
           BIND IPX ALN320_1_E82 NET=CA659B99
           LOAD ALN320 SLOT=2 FRAME=Ethernet_802.3 NAME=ALN320_1_E83
           BIND IPX ALN320_1_E83 NET=D4567899
           LOAD ALN320 SLOT=2 FRAME=Ethernet_II NAME=ALN320_1_EII
           BIND IPX ALN320_1_EII NET=12345677
           LOAD ALN320 SLOT=2 FRAME=Ethernet_SNAP NAME=ALN320_1_ESP
           BIND IPX ALN320_1_ESP NET=12336677
           LOAD ALN320 SLOT=3 FRAME=Ethernet_802.2 NAME=ALN320_2_E82
           BIND IPX ALN320_2_E82 NET=CB459B99
           LOAD ALN320 SLOT=3 FRAME=Ethernet_802.3 NAME=ALN320_2_E83
           BIND IPX ALN320_2_E83 NET=D4567888
           LOAD ALN320 SLOT=3 FRAME=Ethernet_II NAME=ALN320_2_EII
           BIND IPX ALN320_2_EII NET=99887766
           LOAD ALN320 SLOT=3 FRAME=Ethernet_SNAP NAME=ALN320_2_ESP
           BIND IPX ALN320_2_ESP NET=22334455

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

   =========================================
   Introduction:
   -------------
   This document describes the procedure to install the NetWare v3.12
   server driver for AcerLAN ALN-320 10/100 Base-TX Fast Ethernet adapter.

   Location of Driver:     \NWSERVER\ALN320.LAN
   Location of Exe:        \NWSERVER\312\LSWAP.EXE
                           \NWSERVER\312\LOADER.EXE
   Location of NLM:        \NWSERVER\ETHERTSM.NLM
                           \NWSERVER\MSM.NLM
                           \NWSERVER\312\NBI.NLM
   Installation Procedure:
   -----------------------
      Before you start with the installation process, make sure that
      the Novell NetWare 386 v3.12 server is properly installed.
      Similarly, your adapter should also be properly installed in your
      server.

      1. Insert the AcerLAN ALN-320 Driver Diskette into drive A and
         check the contents of subdirectory \NWSERVER, It should
         contain the following files:
         ALN320.LAN       Ä  Novell NetWare V3.12 Server Driver
         \312\LSWAP.EXE      (for Novell NetWare v3.12)
         \312\LOADER.EXE     (for Novell NetWare v3.12)
         \ETHERTSM.NLM   (for Novell NetWare v3.12)
         \MSM.NLM        (for Novell NetWare v3.12)
         \312\NBI.NLM        (for Novell NetWare v3.12)
      2. Please rename C:\SERVER.312 directory to C:\NWSERVER directory.
      3. For Netware 3.12 ONLY you must copy the LOADER.EXE and
         LSWAP.EXE to the C:\NWSERVER directory and run the
         LSWAP.EXE to update the loader segment in the
         server.exe file. This is required by Novell in order
         for the NBI/MSM to function correctly.
      4. If you can log into the server as a supervisor, copy the above
         files into the NetWare 386 subdirectory SYSTEM of your server.
         You can also copy the files to C:\NWSERVER subdirectory.
         Note: If ETHERTSM.NLM and MSM.NLM can't overwrite, you can
               use flag ETHERTSM.NLM (MSM.NLM) -Ro +Rw command
               to change the attribute of ETHERTSM.NLM (MSM.NLM).
               You can also use LOAD A:\NWSERVER\312\ETHERTSM.NLM
               command to load ETHERTSM.NLM ,MSM.NLM and NBI.NLM.

      5. Run SERVER.EXE from C:\NWSERVER. You will see a series of
         NetWare messages on screen.

      6. When the NetWare 386 prompt appears (indicated by a colon),load
         your server driver. Simply type:
         : LOAD ALN320 <Enter>
         or
         : LOAD C:\NWSERVER\ETHERTSM.NLM
         : LOAD C:\NWSERVER\ALN320
      7. Bind IPX to the adapter driver. At the NetWare server prompt,
         type:
         :BIND IPX TO ALN320 <Enter>
      8. After pressing <Enter> the computer prompts you for the Network
         Number. Give it a special number about its segment, or just
         a random number.
      9. 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.

   NOTES:
   ------
      1. Installing One LAN Adapter with Multiple Frame Types:
         When binding multiple frame types to one adapter, each LOAD
         statement will specify a different frame type.
           LOAD ALN320 SLOT=2 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.3 NAME=LAN8023
           BIND IPX TO LAN8023 NET=77777
           LOAD ALN320 SLOT=2 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.2 NAME=LAN8022
           BIND IPX TO LAN8022 NET=88888
           LOAD ALN320 SLOT=2 FRAME=ETHERNET_II NAME=LANII
           BIND IPX TO LANII NET=99999
           LOAD ALN320 SLOT=2 FRAME=ETHERNET_SNAP NAME=LANSNAP
           BIND IPX TO LANSNAP NET=66666
      2. Installing Multiple LAN Adapters:
         When installing multiple LAN adapters, each LOAD statement
         must specify a correct "SLOT" number to avoid being prompted
         for which board to load the driver. For example:
           LOAD ALN320 SLOT=1 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.2 NAME=LAN_A
           BIND IPX TO LAN_A NET=222
           LOAD ALN320 SLOT=2 FRAME=EHTERNET_802.2 NAME=LAN_B
           BIND IPX TO LAN_B NET=333

      3. Installing Multiple LAN Adapters with Multiple Frame Types:
         In the situation, the SLOT and Frame types have to be specified.
         The following is an AUTOEXEC.NCF file example:
           FILE SERVER NAME NW312
           IPX INTERNAL NET 111
           LOAD ALN320 SLOT=2 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.3 NAME=LAN8023
           BIND IPX TO LAN8023 NET=77777
           LOAD ALN320 SLOT=2 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.2 NAME=LAN8022
           BIND IPX TO LAN8022 NET=88888
           LOAD ALN320 SLOT=2 FRAME=ETHERNET_II NAME=LANII
           BIND IPX TO LAN80II NET=99999
           LOAD ALN320 SLOT=2 FRAME=ETHERNET_SNAP NAME=LANSNAP
           BIND IPX TO LANSNAP NET=66666
           LOAD ALN320 SLOT=3 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.3 NAME=LAN8023_2
           BIND IPX TO LAN8023_2 NET=77772
           LOAD ALN320 SLOT=3 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.2 NAME=LAN8022_2
           BIND IPX TO LAN8022_2 NET=88882
           LOAD ALN320 SLOT=3 FRAME=ETHERNET_II NAME=LANII_2
           BIND IPX TO LANII_2 NET=99992
           LOAD ALN320 SLOT=3 FRAME=ETHERNET_SNAP NAME=LANSNAP_2
           BIND IPX TO LANSNAP_2 NET=66662

      4. How to edit the AUTOEXEC.NCF file
           a. At the NetWare prompt, run the INSTALL.NLM
              : LOAD INSTALL
           b. Select "System Options" and press <Enter>.
           c. Select "Edit AUTOEXEC.NCF File" and press <Enter>.
              Don't use "Create AUTOEXEC.NCF File", the option can't
              work ok.
           d. Exit the INSTALL module.

   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.
