ISA NE-Series Ethernet Adapter NDIS Driver for DEC PATHWORK Installation ========================================= The drivers named ETHNE contained in the \NDIS\DOS subdirectory of your Driver Diskette conform to the Network Driver Interface Specification (NDIS) defined by Microsoft/3Com. Installation Procedure ---------------------- 1. Insert the DEC PATHWORKS Client Setup diskette #1 into your floppy drive (either A: or B:). 2. Type the prompt, type the following and press <Enter> to bring up the startup menu: A:>NETSETUP <Enter> 3. You'll be asked if your keyboard type is LK250. Select "NO." If you are using an LK250 keyboard choose "YES." 4. Next, you'll be prompted to choose a transport option. Select the "DECNET transport option" and press <Enter> to proceed. 5. Your system will prompt you to insert the DNET TRNSPRT diskette#1 into your floppy drive. Follow screen instructions. 6. Then you'll be prompted to specify a destination drive. Type C: or D: 7. When asked if you are creating an initial workstation diskette, select "NO." 8. Type in the node name and address (i.e., node number) in the corresponding field. Then press <Enter>. 9. Type in the server node name and address (i.e., node number) in the corresponding field. Then press <Enter>. 10. When asked to "Select the network adapter type:" choose Ethernet. 11. When prompted to "Select the network adapter:" choose "Other NDIS." 12. Indicate the subdirectory location of your NDIS driver in the Driver Diskette. For example, type the following: A:\MSLANMAN.DOS\DRIVERS\ETHERNET\NDIS2\ETHNE.DOS 13. When prompted, indicate the subdirectory location of the PROTOCOL.INI file in the Driver Diskette. For example, type the following: A:\MSLANMAN.DOS\DRIVERS\ETHERNET\NDIS2\ 14. Select "WRITE KEY DISK" to save the settings that you have chosen. When prompted to copy the ETHNE.DOS and PROTOCOL.INI files, insert the driver diskette into your floppy drive. 15. Follow screen instructions to complete the installation. 16. From the Configuration screen, press F10 to exit to C:\. 17. Edit the PROTOCOL.INI file from the DECNET subdirectory. Remove the semicolon (;) from the statement "NI_IRQ = 5" under the [DATALINK] section. 18. Make sure that the IRQ value in the new [ETHNE.DOS] section, matches the NI_IRQ value in the [DATALINK] statement. Sample Configuration Files -------------------------- 1.
