  How to Config Your PCI adapter
----------------------------------------------------------------
 1. Go to the PCI configuration item in BIOS setup.

 2. For legacy computers please follow the following steps to
    configure the PCI slot:
   a).  You should know which slot your adapter is plugged in to.
        Look for the physical location of the slot on your PCI
        motherboard.
   b).  Set to "Enable" the field that reads as "this device".
   c).  Set to "Master" the field that reads as "this item".
        The GFC2204 PCI adapter MUST be installed in an expansion
        slot that supports "Bus Master". Refer to your system 
        documentation to determine which slots support Bus Mastering.
   d).  Some BIOS Setups allow you to select which interrupt line
        you can use.  In our case, select "INT A" for the field
        that reads as "this item".
   e).  Select an IRQ of your choice; make sure it does not conflict
        with existing IRQs in use.
   d).  Select the "Trigger method" by which the IRQ is assigned
        or routed to the PCI slot. Choose the "level-trigger" option.
        Multiple GFC2204 PCI adapters can share the same PCI interrupt
        and all must use INTA with level-trigger mode.

 3. Run the diagnostic program found in the driver diskette. If
    a problem arises during the installation, contact your dealer.
    


----------------------------------------------------------------
  Conflict with Microsoft EMM386
----------------------------------------------------------------
The PCI adapters can only function with the EMM386.exe memory manager
program version 4.49 or later. You can verify its version number
by entering EMM386 at the DOS Prompt.

Do not specify the "highscan" option with the EMM386.exe statement
in your config.sys file or your system will hang.

If you run MEMMAKER and select Custom Setup, do not specify
"Aggressively scan upper memory", or it will automatically insert
the HIGHSCAN flag into the EMM386 command line. This parameter
cannot be manually removed once it's installed, doing so
will cause the extended memory manager to malfunction.
