Introduction:
=============

  The Fast Ethernet 10M/100M ODI Driver for DOS workstations confirms to the
  Novell Open Data-Link Interface (ODI) specification. This document shows you
  how to setup the driver and how to use the enhanced functions by setting the
  custom keywords in configuration file.


Contents of the Subdirectory:
=============================

    FOS2ODI.SYS         The ODI driver for OS/2 workstations.
    OS2ODI.TXT          This file.
    NET.CFG		Sample network configuration file.

Installation:
=============

  Before starting with the installation process, make sure that the adapter
  is properly installed and configured. You can use the diagnostic program
  (A:\SETUP.EXE) to make sure your connection with the network is correct.

  Installation by using Netware OS2 ODI Client Install utility:
  -------------------------------------------------------------
    Please install the Netware ODI OS2 Requester files following the procedures
    as described in the Netware installation guide. For detailed information,
    refer to Novell manual "NetWare Requester for OS/2". Default installation
    directory is C:\NETWARE.

    1)  Copy FOS2ODI.SYS (from this diskette) to your C:\NETWARE directory.

        If the following line is present at your CONFIG.SYS, remark it.
           DEVICE=C:\NETWARE\NE2000.SYS

        Then add the following device driver statement to your CONFIG.SYS file:
           DEVICE=C:\NETWARE\FOS2ODI.SYS

    2)  You can modify NET.CFG file for special settings. For detailed
        information about common Keywords, please refer to Novell manual.
        There is one special keyword: PCIID , which is the PCI Ethernet
        adapter EtherID value. If 0 is given, driver will use the first
        adapter found.


  NOTE:
  -----
    Multiple Lan Adapters in a system:
      If you want to install mutiple Lan adapter in your system, you have to
      use the keyword, SLOT, in NET.CFG file to let driver locate the right
      adapter. 


Configuration Files:

    Custom Keywords:
    ----------------
        PCIID hhhhhhhhhhhh              This keyword is the Ethernet Address of
                                        the adapter you want to drive. If there
                                        are more than one ethernet adapters in
                                        your system, you have to use this
                                        keyword to let driver locate the right
                                        adapter. However, you don't have to use
                                        this property or let the value to be
                                        zero (i.e. PCIID = 0) if there is only
                                        one adapter in your system.
        FULLDUPLEX                      This keyword is used to force full
                                        duplex mode.
        HALFDUPLEX                      This keyword is used to force half
                                        duplex mode.
        SPEED 100 or 10                 This keyword is used to force Line
                                        Speed at 10 or 100.
        AUTO                            This keyword is used to force the
                                        chip at Auto-Negotiation mode.
        SLOT n                          This keyword is used to force the slot
                                        number the driver loaded.

	Note: For PCI mode adapter, you don't have to define INT and PORT value
              in your NET.CFG file, driver will ignore these settings.
