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

  The Ethernet Driver for SCOUNIX confirms to the SCOUNIX LLI driver package
  format. This document shows you how to setup the SCOUNIX driver and how to
  use the enhanced functions by setting the custom keywords in configuration
  file.


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

    fetsco3.tar            The SCOUNIX driver installation package in TAR format.
    fetsco3.txt            This 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 SCOUNIX custom utility:
  ---------------------------------------------------------
    1) Make a sub-directory like fetsco3
       ex: mkdir fetsco3
           cd fetsco3

    2) copy scounix\fetsco3.tar to harddisk in UNIX. (Use DOSCP command)
       ex: doscp -r a:/scounix/fetsco3.tar fetsco3.tar

    3) uncompress fetsco3.tar with TAR command.
       ex: tar xvf fetsco3.tar

    4) delete fetsco3.tar
       ex: rm fetsco3.tar

    5) compress extracted files to a formatted floopy
       ex: tar cvf /dev/rfd0135ds18 .

    6) Run CUSTOM utility in UNIX to install driver with this diskette..
       ex: custom

    7) Run netconfig to configure p3043 driver.
       ex: netconfig

    8) when you running netconfig utility,you must select Driver mode (1.Auto 2.100 Full 
       3.100 Half 4.10 Full 5.10 Half),and Auto mode is default.

    9) If you want to change Driver mode,you must run netconfig and select 3.Reconfigure an
       element in a chain.Select the driver and select Driver mode again.After you change the
       driver mode,you must link unix again.

       
NOTE:
=====
    Multiple Lan Adapters in a system:
      If you want to install mutiple Lan adapter in your system, you have to
      use the keyword, Pciid1, Pciid2, Pciid3, Pciid4 respectively in
      \etc\conf\pack.d\p30430\space.c file to let driver locate the right
      adapter. You can run A:\SETUP.EXE under DOS prompt to show all the
      Ethernet addresses of your adapters.


Configuration Files:
====================

    File Name:          \etc\conf\pack.d\p3043?\space.c (?=0,1,2,3)
    ----------
    Sample of configuration file:
    -----------------------------

        ...
        char *Pciid1="0";
        char *Pciid2="0";
        char *Pciid3="0";
        char *Pciid4="0";
        ...

    Pciid1 is the PCI ID of first PCI Ethernet adapter.
    Pciid2 is the PCI ID of second PCI Ethernet adapter.
    Pciid3 is the PCI ID of third PCI Ethernet adapter.
    Pciid4 is the PCI ID of fourth PCI Ethernet adapter.
    Pciid value "0" means use the first PCI Ethernet adapter found.
    So Pciid2, Pciid3, Pciid4 should not have value "0".

    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. Pciid1 = "0") if there is
                                        only one adapter in your system.

       Note: For PCI mode adapter, you don't have to define IRQ and IOBASE value
             when you install your driver, for the driver will ignore these
             values.
