This diskette has network driver support for the PCMCIAs Ethernet/Fax/Modem PC Card. There is a format change for this driver disk. All README's have been reformatted, an easy setup program, and consistency on all documentation provided. We hope our new readme's and installation will minimize the users effort to make our products work. Should you have further recommendations please contact the support manager. Install PC Card Software Manually ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ The installation software has been carefully designed to detect a combination of hardware and software installed on the PC. Proper detection will allow the PC's PC Card drivers to enable the LanModem. If the installation software fails to complete, the enabler will need to be manually copied from the driver disk to the PC. The follow the next few steps for instructions If Windows for Workgroup 3.11, Windows NT, or Windows 95 are used, follow the instructions for installing PC Cards in the PC's manual. Determine if any third party generic enablers installed on the PC. These are identified by a search through the CONFIG.SYS file for the following lines: Vendor Device Loaded in CONFIG.SYS --------------- ------------------------------- Awards Software DEVICE=C:\CARDWARE\PCENABLE.EXE System Soft DEVICE=C:\CARDSOFT\CARDID.EXE Phoenix DEVICE=C:\PCMPLUS\PCMSCD.EXE If one of these exist in your CONFIG.SYS, it can be used to enable the PCMCIAs Ethernet/Fax/Modem PC Card. Follow the PCMCIA driver installation instructions in the PC's manual. If the PC Card drivers do not support multi-function cards, please use the included enabler. Disable all current PC Card drivers by editing the CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT. If it is necessary to keep these drivers for other adapters skip to next section. Insert Driver Disk in drive A:. Type C: at the command prompt. Type MD LMCARD to make a new directory. Type COPY A:\ENABLER\*.* C:\LMCARD to copy the enabler to your directory. Modify the PATH= statement in your AUTOEXEC.BAT to include path C:\LMCARD. Change From PATH=<Original Path> To PATH=<Original Path>;C:\LMCARD Use the CARDEN.EXE to enable LanModem when the PC is loading Card Services. Getting Started ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ For Novell, Lan Manager, and Packet Driver, first insert the PCMCIAs Ethernet/Fax/Modem PC Card into one of the free PCMCIA card slots, remove all other PC Cards from your machine. Then insert the "LanModem Drivers Disk" into drive A, and type A:\INSTALL at the command prompt. The installation program will copy files to the destination directory and modify your related files(CONFIG.SYS, AUTOEXEC.BAT, and NET.CFG). For Windows for Workgroup, Windows NT & Windows 95, use the "Network Setup" utility provided by windows system to install the LanModem. On this disk you will find sub-directories for each of the Microsoft products. Each directory has a README.TXT that will help install that particular Microsoft product. After installation, simply reboot the machine to enable the LanModem. EMM386 Usage with LanModem ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ Under PCMCIA all I/O cards (including Ethernet and Modem) must be initialized as memory cards and then switched into I/O mode operation by an enabler software. Therefore, the enabler software (such as CARDEN.EXE) must see the PC Card memory when it is executed. DOS extended memory managers such as EMM386 and QEMM take control of the PC memory space which effects PC Card initialization. There are two solutions available: 1) Run enabler (CARDEN or existing PC Card drivers + CARDEN) before EMM386 or QEMM is loaded. 2) Exclude at least 4K of memory from EMM386's or QEMM's use. An exclusion of X=D000-D3FF will work well.There may also be additional exclusions for your PCMCIA drivers, don't modify these. Driver Directory Structure ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ The network drivers on this disk is organized in the following structure. Each directory contains a README.TXT file which provides you with detailed installation instructions for drivers in that directory: LanModem Diskette Release 05/01/96 ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ CARDEN.EXE Direct PCMCIA Card Enabler for DOS, supports LanModem and Intel compatible, Compaq and Databook controllers.
