	  Accton EN2212 Ethernet PCMCIA Adapter
       NDIS Driver for DEC PATHWORKS Installation

The driver ETHPCM.DOS contained in directory \NDIS\DOS is used with
Accton Ethernet PCMCIA adapters in the DEC Pathworks environment.

This driver conforms to the Network Driver Interface Specification
(NDIS) 2.0 defined by Microsoft/3Com.


  a. Insert the DEC PATHWORKS Client Setup diskette #1 in the
     diskette drive (A: or B:).

  b. Type Netsetup at the A: or B: prompt.

  c. Unless you have an LK250 keyboard, select "NO".

  d. Select the DECNET transport option and press <Enter>.

  e. Insert the DNET TRNSPRT diskette #1 in the diskette drive (A: or B:).

  f. Specify the target drive letter (C: or D:).

  g. At the prompt "Are you creating an initial workstation diskette?",
     select "NO".

  h. Enter the node name and address (i.e. node number).

  i. Enter the server node name and address (i.e. node number).

  j. Select "Ethernet" when prompted "Select the network adapter type:".

  k. Select "(Other NDIS)" when prompted "Select the network adapter:".

  l. Enter the full DRIVE:\PATH\FILENAME for NDIS driver:


     Located in the Accton driver program diskette.

  m. Enter the DRIVE:\PATH for the PROTOCOL.INI file:


  n. If they are all accurate, select "WRITE KEY DISK" to start installation.
     When prompted to copy files ETHPCM.DOS and PROTOCOL.INI, insert
     the Accton driver program diskette in the source drive
     (A: or B: dependent on path specified in step l. and m.)

  o. Follow the prompts until installation completes.

  p. At the Configuration screen, press F10 to exit to C:\.

  q. Using a text editor to edit PROTOCOL.INI in the DECNET sub-directory.
     Remove the semicolon (;) from the statement "NI_IRQ = 5"
     under [DATALINK], then check if the IRQ value in
     the new [ETHPCM.DOS] IRQ statement (maybe omitted) matches the NI_IRQ
     value in the [DATALINK] statement and Adapter IRQ value configured.

 2.  Sample CONFIG.SYS file

       shell=c:\ /P /E:526
       device=C:\dos\EMM386.EXE ram 1024
       dos=high, UMB
       devicehigh=c:\decnet\accopen.exe /int=5 /port=300
       devicehigh=c:\decnet\protman.sys /I:D:\DECNET
       rem device=c:\decnet\nddrv.sys
       rem device=c:\decnet\npdrv.sys

  3.  Sample PROTOCOL.INI file for PATHWORKS v 4.1

      ; PROTOCOL.INI file created by DNETOMO.V41 V4.1.060
      ; 	     via DNETWIK.V41 V4.1.047

      [protocol manager]


      LG_BUFFERS   = 16
      SM_BUFFERS   = 6
      OUTSTANDING  = 32
      HEURISTICS   = 0
      ;Specify IRQ level used by the workstation network adapter
      NI_IRQ	 = 5

      ; PROTOCOL.INI for ACCTON PCMCIA ethernet adapter

      drivername = ETHPCM$
      ; irq = NI_IRQ = Adapter IRQ Setting
      irq = 5
      iobase = 0x300

      ; End of this sample file

 4.  Sample AUTOEXEC.BAT file

     echo off
     break on
     prompt $p$g
     REM Insert any keyboard internationalization and character set information here.
     if not exist \decnet\STARTNET.BAT goto nostartup
     call \decnet\STARTNET
     goto end
     echo ** WARNING ** STARTNET.BAT file not found.  Network functions not performed
