Introduction:
=============

  The Ethernet NDIS2 Driver for PCNFS confirms to the Network Driver
  Interface Specification(NDIS2). This document shows you how to setup
  the driver and how to use the enhanced functions by setting the custom
  keywords in configuration file.


Contents of the Subdirectory:
=============================

    PCNFS.TXT           This file.
    FETND.DOS           The NDIS2 driver for PCNFS.
    PROTOCOL.INI        Sample protocol.ini file.


Installation:
=============

  Before starting with the installation process, make sure that the adapter
  is properly installed and configured. You can use the diagnostic program
  (A:\SETUP.EXE) to make sure your connection with the network is correct.

  Installation procedure for PCNFS
  --------------------------------

    1) Run PCNFS install program and follow screen instructions.

    2) When the "Configure an Ethernet network connection" appears, Select
       "Ethernet" and press <Enter>.

    3) Choose NE2000 network adapter and select "NDIS" and press <Enter>.

    4) Follow the screen instructions to complete the installation.

    5) Two subdirectory will be created after installation, default in C:\NFS
       and C:\LANMAN.

    6) Copy A:\PCNFS\FETND.DOS to C:\NFS.

    7) Edit CONFIG.SYS to replace the line

                DEVICE=C:\LANMAN\NE2000.DOS
       with
                DEVICE=C:\LANMAN\FETND.DOS

    8) Edit PROTOCOL.INI file in C:\LANMAN directory, add the following section

       [FETND_NIF]
             Drivername    = FETND$
         
    9) Find [NFS-NDIS] section in PROTOCOL.INI file in C:\LANMAN directory, add
       the following line after "Drivername = NFSLINK$" line:

             Bindings   = FETND_NIF

   10) Restart the computer.
