A. NetWare ODI Server Driver Installation (NetWare 3.12)
========================================================

Requirements:
-------------
      Accton EN1203, EN1207(-TX) Series Driver Diskette (PCI40.LAN)
      Driver Location: \NetWare\ODI\3.1X

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 workstation.

1. Insert the Accton EN1203, EN1207(-TX) Series Driver Diskette into drive A
   and check the contents of subdirectory  \NETWARE\ODI\3.1X
   It should contain the following file :

   PCI40.LANÄÄÄ  Novell NetWare V4.X, 3.1X Server Driver for EN1203,
                 EN1207(-TX) Series
   ETHERTSM.NLM
   MSM31X.NLM

2. Copy the above LAN files from the Accton Driver Diskette
   into the NetWare 386 subdirectory of your server.

3. Run SERVER.EXE from your server. You will see a series
   of NetWare messages onscreen.

4. Before load server driver you must load above those extension name
   named NLM driver. You must load msm31x.nlm firstly. If you boot in
   MS-DOS 6.x environment, then will show ".... is msm NOT msm31x..."this
   warning message. You can ignore it. Then load ethertsm.nlm.

5. When the NetWare 386 prompt appears (indicated by a colon),
   load your server driver. Simply type:

   : LOAD [d:]PCI40
   SLOT=1 [1..8]
   TP [AUI,BNC,AUTODETECT,TP_FULL_DUPLEX] /* BNC NOT support EN1207-TX Series*/
   LINE_SPEED=100 [10,100]                /* for EN1207(-TX) Series only */
   FRAME=ETHERNET_802.3  <Enter>

   (Command Syntax : LOAD [d:]<Driver Name> SLOT=<SLOT ID.>
                                            <MEDIUM TYPE>
                                            LINE_SPEED=<Line Speed>
                                            FRAME=<FRAME TYPE>)

 *****************************************************************************

6. Bind IPX to the Accton LAN driver. At the NetWare server
   prompt, type:

   :BIND IPX PCI40 <Enter>

7. After  pressing <Enter> the computer prompts  you  for
   the Network Number. For details on how to assign this
   number,  please consult your NetWare 386  Installation
   Manual.




B. NetWare ODI Server Driver Installation (NetWare 4.10)
=======================================================

Requirements:
-------------

      Driver Location: \NetWare\ODI\4.X

Installation Procedure:
-----------------------
1. Insert the Accton EN1203, EN1207(-TX) Series Driver Diskette into drive A
   and check the contents of subdirectory  \NETWARE\ODI\4.10
   It should contain the following file :

   PCI40.LANÄÄÄ  Novell NetWare V4.X, 3.1X Server Driver for EN1203,
                 EN1207(-TX) Series
   PCI40.LDIÄÄÄ  Novell NetWare V4.X Server Driver Installation
                 Information File
   MSM.NLM
   ETHERTSM.NLM
   AUTOEXEC.NCF

2. At the NetWare prompt (indicated by the Server name),
   run the INSTALL.NLM program by typing:

   server name: LOAD INSTALL <Enter>

3. Select "Maintenance/Selective Install" and press <Enter>.

4. Select "LAN Driver Options (Configure/Load/...)"
   and press <Enter>.

5. Press the <Ins> key to specify other drivers to install.

6. Press <F3> and specify the driver path (A:\NETWARE\ODI\4.10)
   and press <Enter>.

7. The PCI40.LAN driver should appear in your choice list for
   the 'Select a LAN Driver' field. Choose this driver to
   start the driver loading and binding procedure. This
   will allow you to load and bind all 4 frame types supported
   by NetWare.

8. Next time you start up your system, simply follow steps
   2 to 4 to complete the installation.

2. You can now log into your network.



D. NetWare OS2 ODI Workstation Driver Installation
==================================================
This section describes the procedure to install
the NetWare OS/2 ODI workstation driver for your adapter.

You can use the following methods to install the driver.

D.1 Install method

Requirements:
-------------
      Accton EN1203, EN1207(-TX) Driver Diskette (PCIMLID.SYS)
      Driver Location: \NetWare\ODI\OS2ODI

Installation Procedure:
-----------------------
1  Run INSTALL utility for Netware OS/2 requester and follow its
   instructions.

2. Assign PCIMLID.SYS as the network interface driver name and specify
   the path as A:\NETWARE\ODI\OS2ODI.

3. Insert Accton EN1207-TX Driver Diskette into driver A. then wait
   for file copy completion.

4. Choose the session support you need.  For more information, please
   see Netware OS/2 Requester Manual.

5. Save configuration.

6. Run CONFIGURATION UTILITY and select "THIS WORKSTATION" to modify the
   NET.CFG file. (This file is located in the root directoy of OS/2 system,
   you can use any text editor to modify it.)

7. Shutdown and restart the machine.


NOTE: If your OS/2 version is 2.0 or later, you must have the Netware OS/2
      Requester version 2.01 or later.

D.2 Manual method

 PREREQUISITES:  You will need the following diskettes:
      Accton EN1203, EN1207(-TX) Series Driver Diskette  (PCIMLID.SYS)
      Driver Location: \NetWare\ODI\OS2ODI

    Novell NetWare OS/2 WORKSTATION SERVICES REQUESTER diskette
    Novell NetWare OS/2 WORKSTATION OS/2 Utility - 1
    Novell NetWare OS/2 WORKSTATION OS/2 Utility - 2
    Novell NetWare OS/2 WORKSTATION OS/2 Utility - 3


 2. Make sure that the computer is a 286 or 386 machine that will run
    OS/2 or Extended Edition OS/2.


 3. Install the OS/2 Requester, referring to Novell's documentation for
    NetWare Requester for OS/2 installation.


 4. Copy the \NetWare\ODI\OS2ODI\PCIMLID.SYS file from the support disk
    into the NETWARE subdirectory on your hard disk.


 5. Add or replace the PCIMLID.SYS command line in the CONFIG.SYS file.
    Make sure it precedes the IPX.SYS command line.  An example:

       DEVICE=C:\NETWARE\LSL.SYS          ; OS/2 Requester supported
       DEVICE=C:\NETWARE\DDAEMON.SYS      ; OS/2 Requester supported
       DEVICE=C:\NETWARE\PCIMLID.SYS      ; ACCTON 1207-TX supported
       DEVICE=C:\NETWARE\IPX.SYS          ; OS/2 Requester supported


 6. Reboot the computer and log onto your network.



 -----------------
 INSTALLATION NOTE
 -----------------

 You can bind several frame types to the IPX protocol to support various
 configurations -- in the Link Driver PCIMLID section of the NET.CFG
 file.

 SAMPLE:

    Link Driver PCIMLID

    frame Ethernet_802.3
    frame Ethernet_802.2
    frame Ethernet_II
    frame Ethernet_snap

    protocol IPX 00 Ethernet_802.3

E. Installation Notes
=====================

1. When loading  PCI40.LAN, it will check whether MSM and
   ETHERTSM have been  loaded,  if not, it  will  load  them
   automatically.  So after PCI40.LAN  is loaded, if you type '
   MODULES' command under  prompt,  you  will see that two extra
   modules, namely, MSM.NLM and ETHERTSM.NLM are also loaded.

2. The  default  frame  type for the PCI40.LAN binding is
   Ethernet_802.2 and not  Ethernet_802.3.  This  is  the
   difference between V3.11 and V4.X drivers.

   The PCI40.LAN also supports the NetWare V3.11 environment.
   However, it requires loading of some patch NLMs  before  loading it.

3. Remember to specify LASTDRIVE=Z in the CONFIG.SYS file.

4. Edit the NET.CFG if you want to change some parameters.

   For example, if you're using a NetWare 3.11 workstation and
   wants to log into a NetWare v4.X  server. The default
   frame type of NetWare 3.11 is Ethernet 802.3, while that of
   NetWare v4.X  is Ethernet 802.2. Before you can log into
   the NetWare v4.X , make sure there is a protocol binding
   for Ethernet 802.3 in the server's NET.CFG file.

   This is normally included in the [MLID] section. A sample
   NET.CFG file is given below:

   LINK DRIVER PCIMLID
        TP       ;; Medium type in used
        :
        :
