    Please refer to Content C.), in step 2, mark "Netware Client 32 for DOS"
    and "Client 32 for Windows", then following step 3..8 to complete the
    installation.


E.) Driver Installation for Microsoft Windows 95

        If you have installed the Microsoft Client in your Windows 95 system,
you should remove the adapter object and NDIS 2/3 driver of the EN1203,
EN1207(-TX) series adapter from Windows 95 system.  No matter if you have
installed the DEC DC21x4 based driver or Accton's NDIS 2/3 driver, before you
install EN1203, EN1207(-TX) Series Client 32 driver, you should do the
following steps.

    E.1) Remove adapter object & driver for DECchip 21140
         or Accton EN1203, EN1207(-TX) Series
         =====================================================
         1.> Click the "My Computer" icon in the Main Program Group.
         2.> Click the "Control Panel" icon from My Computer window.
         3.> Click the "System" icon from the Control Panel window.
         4.> Click the "Network adapter" icon from System window.
         5.> Click the "PCI Fast Ethernet DECchip 21140 Based Adapter" or
             "Accton EN1207(-TX) PCI fast Ethernet Adapter" or
             "Accton EN1203 PCI Ethernet Adapter" icon from System window.
         6.> Click <Remove> button, then click <OK> button.
         7.> Close the opened windows.


         Note: If you NEVER pluged EN1203 or EN1207(-TX) PCI adapter into
               your PC, Procedure E.1) is not necessary.  And you just start
               from Procedure E.2).

    E.2) Install the Client 32 driver installation information file
         ==========================================================
         8.> Switch to MS-DOS Command Prompt windows.
         9.> Insert Accton EN1203, EN1207(-TX) Driver Diskette into your
             PC's floppy drive (A: or B:)
        10.> Type the following DOS command:

             CD \WINDOWS\INF
             RENAME NETPCI.INF *.IN_
             RENAME ACCPCI.INF *.IN_
             COPY A:\LANDRV32\ACC07.INF
             EXIT

             Notice: The above commands are collected in the SetWin95.BAT file
                     in the directory \LANDRV32.  That is you can execute the
                     following program to install the Client 32 driver
                     installation information file.

                     A:\LANDRV32\SETWIN95 C:\WINDOWS

                     where C:\WINDOWS is your Windows 95 system directory.

        11.> Shutdown and turn off the machine.


    E.3) Client 32 Driver Installation on Windows 95
         =====================================================

        12.> Plug Accton's EN1203 or EN1207(-TX) adapter into one of the
             Master PCI slots of your PCI platform.
        13.> Turn power on then boot from Windows 95.
        14.> Windows 95 will prompt PCI Ethernet Controller in New Hardware
             Found dialog box.
        15.> Windows 95 will prompt "Accton EN1207(-TX) PCI Fast Ethernet
             Adapter" or "Accton EN1203 PCI Ethernet Adapter" in New Hardware
             Found dialog box.

        16.> Following instructions to complete the installation.

             Note: Windows 95 will ask you to keyin the proper path of the
                   following diskette:

                a.> Netware Client 32 for Windows 95 Disk
                b.> Accton EN1203, EN1207 PCI Series Ethernet Adapter Driver
                    Diskette --> Insert Accton EN1203, EN1207 Series Driver
                    Diskette, then, assign the path to A:\LANDRV32 or
                    B:\LANDRV32
                c.> Windows 95 CD-ROM


F.) Parameters Description for ACC07.LAN

        The following parameters are used in ACC07.LAN.

    1.> SLOT:     specify which adapter is enabled when multiple EN1203 or
                  EN1207(-TX) are found in your computer.  The SLOT
                  keyword is an index value corresponding to PCI BIOS.  The
                  value of SLOT is different from one machine to the other.

                  Ex: LOAD ACC07 SLOT=10001 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.2
                      LOAD ACC07 SLOT=10004 FRAME=ETHERNET_II

    2.> FRAME   : specify which frame type is used by the driver.  Accepted
                  values are Ethernet_802.2, Ethernet_802.3, Ethernet_II and
                  Ethernet_SNAP.  Multiple frame types can be enabled by the
                  drive by loading the same driver with different FRAME type.

                  Ex: LOAD ACC07 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.2
                      LOAD ACC07 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.3
                      LOAD ACC07 FRAME=ETHERNET_II
                      LOAD ACC07 FRAME=ETHERNET_SNAP

    3.> NODE    : Use a different address to replace the node address burned
                  in EEPROM.

                  Ex: LOAD ACC07 NODE=0200E8001122

    4.> Attachment: Specify the connection type of EN1203 or EN1207-TX adapter.

                  Default value is AUTODETECT.

                  Driver Parameters     Description
                  =================     =====================================
                  AUTODETECT            (Autodetect)
                                        for EN1203, autodetect the connection
                                        type during driver initializetion,
                                        for EN1207, autodetect the connection
                                        type and line speed during driver
                                        initialization,
                                        for EN1207-TX, run-time autosense the
                                        connection type and line speed.  This
                                        function also enable the NS chip (83840)
                                        Auto-Negoation operation.

                  TP                    (Twisted Pair)
                                        Connector type is RJ-45.
                                        When Line_Speed=10, it is 10BaseT and
                                        when Line_Speed=100, it is 100BaseTx.

                  BNC                   (Thick wire)
                                        Connector is BNC (10Base2).
                                        EN1207-TX dose not support this
                                        parameter.

                  AUI                   (AUI)
                                        Connector is AUI (10Base5).
                                        Currently, Accton's PCI boards do not
                                        support this connector.

                  TP_FULL_DUPLEX        (Twisted pair - Full Duplex)
                                        Connector is RJ-45 with Full Duplex
                                        mode enabled.  The throughput is 20Mbps
                                        for 10BaseT and 200Mbps for 100BaseTx.

                  TP_NO_LINK_TEST       (Twisted pair with link test disabled)
                                        Connector is RJ-45, but the link test
                                        function of transceiever is disabled.
                                        This function should be enabled if
                                        your repeater dose not support link
                                        test function.

                  Ex: LOAD ACC07 TP
                      LOAD ACC07 TP LINE_SPEED=100
                      LOAD ACC07 BNC
                      LOAD ACC07 AUTODETECT
                      LOAD ACC07 TP_FULL_DUPLEX LINE_SPEED=100

    5.> LINE_SPEED: (Line_Speed)
                    Specify the speed that your network adapter worked.
                    Accepted values are 10 and 100.  No default value is
                    assigned.

    6.> TURBO     : (Turbo mode)
                    Enhance the performance when your PCI platform uses SATURN
                    CDC or PCMC chip.

    7.> SNOOZE    : (Snooze mode)
                    With EN1207(-TX) new NIC, Snooze mode can reduce power
                    consumption.  The NIC stop most of its internal clock
                    operation except a network activity is detected.
                    This is not a default function of ACC07.LAN.


    8.> CAPTURE_EFFECT: (Enable the function for solving Capture Effect
                    problem.)
                    The driver offers a vendor support function to avoid
                    starvation when multiple collisions are occurred on
                    the line. But this function is not part of the
                    Ethernet SPEC. You can use this parameter to enable
                    the function.
