	       Accton EN1203/EN1207-TX Series 1Step Program
		    for PCI Ethernet Adapter Series


The 1STEP.EXE program is used for the following LAN Adapter:

	      EtherDuo PCI	     (EN1203)
	      Fast EtherPair-TX PCI  (EN1207-TX) or (EN1207B-TX)

This directory includes the following files:

1STEP.TXT	  This File
1STEP.EXE	  MPX Link, Hardware configuration and Software

1STEP is designed to simplify the EN1203/EN1207-TX Series PCI Ethernet Adapter's
installation for NetWare or other network operating systems.
1Step is also used to set up Adapter's Hardware configuration.

Starting the Program

From DOS, type the following indicating the directory or drive
location of the 1STEP.EXE program. Then press <Enter> to display
the main screen for 1Step:

   A:\>1STEP	<Enter>

1STEP provides the following functions for the Adapter:

	MPX Link
	Hardware Configuration
	Software Installation


If there is more than one adapter installed inside the host PC,
Open the Hardware Configuration menu. The Hardware Configuration
module	will prompt you to specify the card you want to configure.
When system boot, PCI BIOS will automatically resolve the I/O base
or IRQ confliction, then assign the available I/O base or IRQ for the

MPX  Link

You can use this function to automatically log onto the
Novell	NetWare network. To have 1Step copy the appropriate
drivers onto your hard disk, create the necessary configuration
files,	initialize the network drivers, and log onto the nearest
NetWare server, follow these steps:

1. Start the 1Step program.

2. Click on the <MPX  Link> button.

3. Load the EN1203 or EN1207-TX Driver Diskette into the floppy
   drive and press OK.	1Step copies all the necessary Accton
   drivers and files into the NWCLIENT directory.

4. Load the NetWare Universal Client Diskette into the floppy
   drive and press OK.	1Step copies all the necessary NetWare
   drivers and configuration files into the NWCLIENT directory.

5. Let 1Step create your STARTNET.BAT file and then NET.CFG file
   if you don't already have a valid configuration defined for
   these files.

6. 1Step then loads the network drivers and attaches to the
   nearest server, which prompts for your password.

Hardware Configuration

*  1.  Adapter Configuration  *

The adapter is configured using the host PCI computer's BIOS setup
program.  This is done by changing the computer's BIOS setting to
enable bus master mode, and then setting up the IRQ. The procedure
to implement this and the terminology used depend on the BIOS you
are using.

Some BIOS have Bus Master mode enabled for all the motherboard's
PCI expansion slots; others provide you the option of turning this
feature on or off.  For example, if your computer uses the Phoenix
BIOS, there is a "Device Select" field where you should input the
slot number of the PCI slot where the adapter is installed, say
"Slot 3 Device".  Then for the fields that read as "Enable Device"
and "Enable Master" you should change the settings to "Enable".
The same is true for the adapter's IRQ setting, which is mapped to
the BIOS IRQ setup of the host PCI computer.

Finally, you need to set the Trigger/Routing field to select the
Trigger method by which the IRQ is assigned or routed to the PCI
slot. There are three types of settings to choose from:

*  Level/Auto - This is usually the default.  Choosing this option
   leaves the assigned IRQ free for other use if the installed
   card does not use it.

*  Level/Forced - If you are not able get the PCI card to work
   properly, choose this option.  This will assign the specified
   IRQ permanently to the card.

*  Edge/Auto - Some PCI boards support this option. Do not use it.


*   Conflict with Microsoft EMM386   *

The PCI adapters can only function with the EMM386.exe memory manager
program  version 4.49 or later.  You can verify its version number by
entering EMM386 at the DOS Prompt.

Do not specify the "HIGHSCAN" option with the EMM386.exe statement in
your config.sys file or your system will hang.

If you run MEMMAKER and select Custom Setup, do not specify
"Aggressively scan upper memory", or it will automatically insert the
"HIGHSCAN" flag into the EMM386 command line. This parameter can not
be manually removed once it's installed, doing so will cause the
extended memory manager to malfunction.

*  2.  Navigating ACCTEST  *

A. Insert the Driver Diskette into your floppy driver. The ACCTEST
   program is in the root directory of your Driver Diskette.
   To run it, change to the appropriate subdirectory,
   type the following command and press <Enter>:

     A:\> ACCTEST	 <Enter>

   then select an Adapter to test.

B. While the ACCTEST program is running, pressing certain function
   keys invoke immediate actions.  These function keys include the

       <F1>   Resets all counters which report real network status

       <F2>   A toggle switch to turn the network function test
	      ON or OFF

       <ESC>  Terminates current test and returns to adapter-
	      selection screen

   Running the ACCTEST program on a single PC allows monitoring of
   the adapter and the corresponding cabling system. However, this
   does not check the network condition. For better results,  have
   two or more PCs on the network run the test simultaneously.

   The program runs several tests. The screen displays PASS or FAIL
   to  indicate  the  result  of  each	test.  If a test fails,  a
   Description	dialog box  automatically appears on the screen to
   show an error message, possible reason for failure, and possible

   While the test is running, real-time network status is indicated
   via the number of transmit (Tx Count) and receive packets
   (Rx Count) over a transmission period(Time).  In addition,
   the adapter's performance in  bits per second(BPS) is also

Software Installation

Select the appropriate software Vendor, Network Operating System,
Frame Type( for Novell software ), Media Type and the directory
in which the drivers are to be stored. Then press <F2> to install
the network environment you have selected, or press <F3> just to
update the specified drivers. For NetWare users, a batch file for
easily loading the NetWare driver from DOS during start up will
automatically be created(startnet.bat).  Simply execute the batch
file to run the driver and load NetWare automatically.

Note that the Frame Type option is only displayed for Novell

1. Selecting the Network OS  ---  Accton's PCI Ethernet Adapters
   provide extensive driver support.  The version of 1Step that
   comes with this package supports installation for various
   drivers, including NetWare ODI and IBM/MicroSoft NDIS.
   If your network operating system runs under DOS, use 1Step to
   install the corresponding driver.  For any NOS other than these,
   1Step provides instructions on how to install the required drivers.
   refering you to the appropriate subdirectories.

   If the driver you need is not included in this menu,
   refer to the *.TXT file for a list of available drivers and
   instructions for installing these drivers.  *.TXT files are
   provided in each subdirectory for last-minute changes and
   detailed driver installation instructions.

   Press <F1> to activate on-line help under the Software
   Installation menu. Then select the driver you need to view the
   corresponding *.TXT file containing driver installation

2. Selecting Frame Type(Novell only)  ---  Select the  Frame Type
   required for your adapter from the choices provided.
   Selections include Ethernet_802.2, Ethernet_802.3,
   Ethernet_II, Ethernet_SNAP.	The factory default frame type
   is Ethernet_802.3 for NetWare 3.x and Ethernet_802.2 for
   NetWare 4.0.

3. Selecting Media Type  ---  Select the Media Type required for
   your adapter from the choices provided. The default Media Type
   is Auto Detect.  Selections follow the following list:

	 5. BNC

4. Identifying	the  Driver's  Directory Location  ---  Enter the
   directory path in the box labeled Target Directory to indicate
   the location for the NetWare drivers.  When you select Install
   Software  from the  Action Menu,  1Step  searches this path to
   find the files it needs.

5. Menu Bar Commands  ---  The	menu  bar below the title bar
   contains File, Action and Help menus.  Selecting any of these
   opens a pull-down menu containing a list of commands.  Use the
   mouse or keyboard to make a selection.  Then follow screen
   instructions to complete the operation.

   *  File Menu  ---  displays commands for opening a DOS shell
      or exiting to 1Step's main screen.

   *  Action Menu  ---	contains commands to install the select
      software or update the specified drivers.  These functions
      can also be performed by the <F2> and <F3> function keys.

   *  Help Menu  ---  provides software version and copyright
      information under About, while the  Help command provides
      on-line assistance for the functions available in 1Step.
