STREAMS DRIVER ON UNIX SERVER FOR 16-BIT ETHERNET LAN ADAPTERS ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~INSTALLATION PROCEDURE FOR UNIX SYSTEM~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ DISKETTE CONTENTS Your Driver Diskette should contain the following files: ================================================================== Files Contents ================================================================== README.TXT This file; your installation guide UNIXDRVR.TAR Device drivers package for UNIX (in tar format) F2TAR.EXE Utility to transfer UNIXDRVR.TAR onto a formatted diskette. ------------------------------------------------------------------- INSTALLATION PROCEDURE 1. Prepare a formatted diskette on any DOS machine. ( Hint: This can be done using DOS command - FORMAT. e.g. C>format a: ³ ³ ³ À Diskette drive À Dos prompt For more details, please refer to DOS reference manual ) ( Note: Please make sure that there is no bad sector on the target diskette using DOS command - CHKDSK e.g. C>chkdsk a: ³ ³ ³ À Diskette drive À Dos prompt For more details, please refer to DOS reference manual ) 2. Run F2TAR.EXE to generate an Installation Diskette for UNIX system. 2.1 After executing the "f2tar" command, following message will be shown on the screen: "Target drive letter (press 'A' or 'B') : " press 'A' for the first drive, 'B' for second drive. 2.2 Then "f2tar" will load the data file "unixdrvr.tar" into memory and show the following messages: "Reading file, please wait." ...... "Done." 2.3 Note if you are using the same drive for both Source Diskette and UNIX Installation Diskette, "f2tar" will show the message: "Remove the original diskette from drive A" or "Remove the original diskette from drive B" Now you may remove the Source Diskette. 2.4 When the message "Insert a formatted diskette into drive A and press [ENTER] :" or "Insert a formatted diskette into drive B and press [ENTER] :" is shown on the screen, get a formatted blank diskette and insert the diskette to drive A (or B) as indicated in the message. Then press "Enter" key to start processing. 2.5 So "f2tar" will transfer the data file "unixdrvr.tar" to target diskette and following messages will be shown. "Generating UNIX Installation Diskette on drive A." "Press [Ctrl] [C] to abort." If you want to abort the operation, press "Ctrl" and "C" at the same time. Please wait for a few seconds, and the UNIX Installation Diskette will be created. Note that the resulting diskette is in UNIX tar format, thus not accessible by DOS. 3. Remove the UNIX Installation Diskette, login to UNIX system as root. After the data file has been transferred completely, you will see "Please remove the diskette from drive A". If you are using the same drive for both Source Diskette and UNIX Installation Diskette, the messages below will be shown on the screen too. "Please insert the original diskette to drive A" "Press [ENTER] to continue ..." So put Source Diskette back to the drive indicated by the message, and press "Enter" key. Now the UNIX Installation Diskette is ready for use, please login to UNIX system as supervisor (root). ( Note: Please make sure the current directory is "/" using UNIX command - pwd. ) 4. Run custom utility and select Install new package. It will prompt you to insert 16-BIT Ethernet LLI driver disk. After reading drive A, it will show a message to inform you to use netconfig or mkdev <driver> (this case - u5l) to add drivers into your system. If you use mkdev u5l, you must use mkdev tcp and select u5l for this LLI driver to complete configuration. 5. All the hardware setting of 16-bit Ethernet adapter is configured by the SETUP configuration utility. 6. If you encounter any problems during installation, (i.e., an error message appears on-screen) call your dealer for assistance. ======================================================================== Trademarks: SCO ODT is a registered trademark of Santa Cruz Operation, Inc.
