              LAN Manager NDIS Driver Installation
	         for Ethernet+Modem PC Card

The ETHPCM.DOS driver contained in the \MSLANMAN.DOS directory 
is used in the LAN Manager environment.

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

ETHPCM.DOS can be used to enable both the LAN and modem functions of the PC Card.
It should be loaded with the CONFIG.SYS file as an MS/DOS device driver.  

The following keywords are supported in PROTOCOL.INI:

[IRQ]          Specifies the interrupt (IRQ) value for the LAN function.

               Keyword Assignment - 

                  All legal IRQ values are supported.  If the Card Service is 
	          installed in the system, the driver will check with the Card  
	          Service to see if the IRQ you select is free.  If it is, the  
	          driver will use this IRQ.  If it is not free, the driver will  
	          ask the Card Service to assign an available IRQ and use that  
	          IRQ instead of the one you choose.

  	          If Card Service is not installed, the driver will try to use 
	          the IRQ you select regardless whether it is free.  In case 
	          the IRQ is not free, the driver will not come up, 
	          or the system may hang.

	       If Card Service is installed in the system, it is recommended 
	       that you do not specify the IRQ value and let the driver assign
	       one for you.  If Card Service is not installed, please make sure 
	       the IRQ you assign, or the default value (5), is not used by 
	       another device in the system.

[IOBASE]       Specifies the base I/O address for the LAN function.

               The supported values are:

	       0x300 (Default value)
	       0x320
	       0x340
	       0x360

               The comment about IRQ keyword assignment also applies to the
	       IOBASE parameter.  If Card Service is installed in the 
	       system, it is recommended that you do not specify the I/O BASE
	       value and let the driver assign one for you.  If Card Service 
	       in not installed, please make sure the I/O Base you assign, 
	       or the default value (0x300), is not used by another device in 
	       the system.

[COMPORT]      Specifies the COM port (COM2, COM3, COM4) for the modem 
               function.

               The supported values are:

	       2 (for COM2)
	       3 (for COM3, default value)
	       4 (for COM4)

               The comment about IRQ assignment also applies to the
	       COMPORT parameter.  If Card Service is installed in the 
	       system, it is recommended that you do not specify the COMPORT
	       value and let the driver assign one for you.  If Card Service 
	       is not installed, please make sure the COM port you assign, 
	       or the default value (3, for COM3), is not used by another 
	       device in the system.

The following is a sample message displayed by ETHPCM.DOS after it is
loaded:

   The COM PORT is COM3.
      COMPORT = 0x03E8
      COMIRQ  = 0x4
      IOBASE  = 0x0300
      IRQ     = 0x5

This message indicates the ETHPCM.DOS uses the COM3 port for the 
modem function.  The I/O base address for COM3 is 0x3E8 (hexadecimal),
and the IRQ (interrupt) number is 4.  Depending on the availability of the 
COM ports in the machine or user designation, ETHPCM.DOS may display a 
different COM port other than the one shown in this example. 

This message also reports for the Ethernet function.  The I/O base address 
is 0x300, and the IRQ (interrupt) is 5.  These values are configurable
in the PROTOCOL.INI file.  Please consult the sample PROTOCOL.INI file
in this directory for details.
