                 Netware Driver Installation 
		 for Ethernet+Modem PC Card

This directory contains the DOS/ODI driver, namely PCMMLID.COM, that
supports NetWare 3.x and 4.x, NetWare Lite, and other ODI compatible
operating environments.  This driver supports both the Ethernet LAN
and Modem functions of the PC Card.

You need the following files to install the DOS/ODI driver.
All of them are included in this diskette.

1. LSL.COM	     ---- Link Support Layer, supported by Novell.
2. PCMMLID.COM	     ---- DOS/ODI Driver, supplied on this diskette
3. IPXODI.COM	     ---- IPX/ODI driver, supported by Novell.
4. NETx.COM	     ---- Netware shell, supported by Novell.
5. NET.CFG	     ---- Optional configuration file

Copy all these files to a suitable directory, and then enter the following
commands:

LSL		<Enter>
PCMMLID 	<Enter>		
IPXODI		<Enter>
NETx		<Enter>

You can now log into your network.

You also can execute the STARTNET.BAT, a batch file included in the \NETWARE 
directory, to connect to the network.

After executing PCMMLID.COM in the above command sequence, both the
LAN (Ethernet) and Modem functions are enabled.  The command displays the 
Ethernet I/O port and IRQ (interrupt) values used by the LAN function, 
as well as the COM port (e.g. COM2, COM3, or COM4) enabled.  Please use 
this COM port when configuring your modem communication software.

Below is a sample NET.CFG file:

LINK DRIVER PCMMLID
   PORT 300
   IRQ 5
   COMPORT 3
   FRAME Ethernet_802.2
   FRAME Ethernet_802.3
   FRAME Ethernet_II
   FRAME Ethernet_snap
   PROTOCOL IPX 0 Ethernet_802.2

After executing PCMMLID.COM with this NET.CFG file, a message similar to 
the following is displayed:

   COM3: IRQ 4, I/O 3E8
   IRQ 5, Port 300, Node Address E8010155 L
   Max Frame 1514 bytes, Line Speed 10 Mbps, Bus ID 0
   Board 1, Frame ETHERNET_802.2, LSB Mode
   Board 2, Frame ETHERNET_802.3, LSB Mode
   Board 3, Frame ETHERNET_II, LSB Mode
   Board 4, Frame ETHERNET_SNAP, LSB Mode

In the NET.CFG file, the IRQ keyword specifies the interrupt (IRQ) for the 
LAN function.  

IRQ Assignment - 

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

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

If the Card Service is installed in the system, it is recommended 
that you do not specify the IRQ value and let PCMMLID assign one for you.  
If the 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.

The PORT keyword specifies the base I/O address for the LAN function.
The supported values are:

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

The comment about IRQ assignment also applies to the PORT parameter.  If the 
Card Service is installed in the system, it is recommended that you do not 
specify the PORT value and let PCMMLID assign one for you.  If the Card Service 
is 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.

The COMPORT keyword 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 
the Card Service is installed in the system, it is recommended that you do not 
specify the COMPORT value and let PCMMLID assign one for you.  If the 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.
