        NDIS2 Driver Installation for LAN Manager for DOS & OS/2


   This directory contains the following files for installing the
   Ethernet adapters on a LAN Manager DOS workstation, LAN Manager OS/2
   workstation or server with the associated NDIS compliant network
   device driver.

   The directories of mslanman.dos and mslanman.os2 have been prepared
   properly for LAN Manager installation.

   Install the adapter on an MS-DOS LAN Manager workstation

   1. LAN Manager new installation

        a. Start the computer and access the MS-DOS command line.

        b. Insert LAN Manager DOS Setup disk into disk drive A:.

        c. Start the Setup program by typing


        d. Follow the on-screen instructions until "Select Available
           Network Drives:" message appears.

           - select <Other Driver>.

           - insert the adapter's driver diskette into drive A:.

           - type the drive name A:             ; type the drive where
                                                  the driver working
                                                  diskette is inserted

           - when a list of the ET32/P series Ethernet Adapters
             appears on the screen, select
             one that matches your adapter for the installation.

           - follow the on-screen instructions for the rest
             installation procedure.

   If your computer already has LAN Manager software installed

        a. Make the LAN Manager directory the current directory.

           For example, if the LAN Manager software is installed
           in C:\LANMAN, you would type

           cd \lanman

        b. Execute LAN Manager Setup program. You would type


           - select Configuration               ; Press <Alt>+C

           - select Network Drivers             ; Select network driver

           - select <Remove Config>             ; Remove current network
                                                  driver configuration

           - select <Add New Config>            ; Standard driver list

           - select <Other Driver>

           - type the drive name                ; type the drive where
                                                  the DOS driver working
                                                  diskette is inserted

           - when a list of the ET32/P series Ethernet Adapters
             appears on the screen, select one
             that matches the adapter for your installation.

           - Review or change the other configuration for your

   2. The PROTOCOL.INI together with the driver is a text file containing
      hardware configuration data for the network adapter. The following
      table summarizes the possible entries and values for each section
      name in PROTOCOL.INI.

           DriverName  = ET32ND$
        ;  SELECTEDID  = '0040F6000001'

   Install the adapters in one LAN Manager OS/2 server or workstation

      The installation procedure for LAN Manager OS/2 is very similar to
      that for MS-DOS LAN Manager installation.

      Start LAN Manager Setup program, then follow the same procedure as
      that for MS-DOS LAN Manager.

   Install Multiple Adapters in one LAN Manager OS/2 server or workstation

   You may install multiple adapters (four at maximum) in one
   system for your OS/2 LAN Manager. You must select the  driver
   the times equal to the number of adapters installed, during
   running LAN Manager Setup program.

   After installation for multiple adapters, the master PROTOCOL.INI
   in LAN Manager directory will be configured as the following

       PROTOCOL.INI Example ( for example, three ET32/P adapters
       are installed and the Node ID of each adapter are '0040F6000001'
       ,'0040F6000002', and '0040F6000003' respectively. The node ID can
       be obtained for each adapter by running the SETUP program supplied
       in the adapter's driver diskette.)
       DRIVERNAME = ET32P$
       SELECTEDID  = '0040F6000001'

       DRIVERNAME = ET32P$
       SELECTEDID  = '0040F6000002'

       DRIVERNAME = ET32P$
       SELECTEDID  = '0040F6000003'

   In regard to CONFIG.SYS, you will find the file contains only one
   DEVICE line for ET32ND.OS2 instead of three as shown in the following

       CONFIG.SYS Example

   Technical Note

   The Microsoft LAN Manager installation will try to modify the
   CONFIG.SYS to contain the following line to include its EMM386.EXE:


   However, this copy of EMM386.EXE has the compatibility problem with
   some PCI bus system. Please refer to the PCI&EMM.DOC file included in
   this driver diskette for details.

   A change in CONFIG.SYS to include the MS-DOS V6.22 EMM386.EXE is
   necessary, if you are going to use the ET32/Px PCI Ethernet adapter in
   a PCI system. Please modify the above line to include the new
   EMM386.EXE from MS-DOS V6.22.

           DEVICE=C:\DOS\EMM386.EXE NoEMS
