** ** ** VIA Rhine Family Fast Ethernet Adapter ** ** SCOUNIX 5.0 Driver ** ** v4.17 Jan. 2004 ** ** Introduction: ============= Below are instructions for creating an SCO "custom" installation diskette containing the MDI device driver for Fast Ethernet network adapter family. MDI drivers are used with SCO's Open Server 5.0 Operating System. Once the diskette is created, follow the SCO instructions for using the "custom" and "netconfig" utilities to install the driver. Contents of the Subdirectory: ============================= sco5.vol The SCO UNIX 5.0.4 driver installation package. sco5.txt This file. Installation: ============= To begin, place the sco5.vol file on a DOS formatted diskette. sco5.vol is a SCO UNIX diskette image file. Place the diskette in drive A on a computer with SCO UNIX installed. If you wish to use drive B, adjust the instructions below appropriately. 1)Now enter the following commands at the UNIX prompt. Remember, UNIX is case sensitive. doscp a:sco5.vol VOL.000.000 (copies from DOS disk to current working directory) 2)Now place the 3.5" diskette you want to become the installation diskette in drive A. This should be a UNIX formatted, high density diskette. Enter the following command. Again, if you wish to use drive B, adjust the instructions below appropriately. dd if=VOL.000.000 of=/dev/rfd0135ds18 (transfers disk image to diskette) The diskette is now ready to use with the SCO "custom" utility. 3) Run netconfig ,and in Hardware select "Add new LAN adapter card" . It will find the card automatically. The driver will be set auto mode. Configuration: ============== We support two options for you to configure your Adapter. 1) Media Speed and Media Type This option is used for setting the speed and duplex mode of NIC. Value: Autonegotiation: indicate autonegotiation for both speed and duplex mode (Default). M_100_Full: indicate 100Mbps full duplex mode M_100_Half: indicate 100Mbps half duplex mode M_10_Full: indicate 10Mbps full duplex mode M_10_Half: indicate 10Mbps half duplex mode 2) Flow Control (in Advanced Options) This option is used for setting the flow control ability of NIC. Value: HW_Default_Auto: hardware default (auto). Use hardware default value. Disable: disable PAUSE. Enable: enable PAUSE. When setting to Hardware Default(Auto), the flow control setting is according to the auto-negotiation result based on PHY hardware default values. However, when setting to other values(Disable, Enable), driver will just disable or enable flow control ability according to your setting. 3) Validate layer 2 frame length This option is used for controling if NIC receiving or drop the frame with invalid layer 2 frame langth. Value: Disable: Receive the frame with invalid layer 2 frame length (Default) Enable: Drop the frame with invalid layer 2 frame lengthDownload Driver Pack
