      Before you start the installation process, make sure that the
      adapter is properly installed and configured.  Make sure that
      your NetWare workstation operating system is properly installed.

      1. Run INSTODI.BAT  from the driver  which  has  this  installation

      2. Select the ODI environment(VLM or NETX).

      3. The installation program will copy all required files to C:\NWNET
         directory and create NET.CFG and STARTNET.BAT files.

      4. The installation program will modify CONFIG.SYS file to add
         "LASTDRIVE=drive" statement upon your confirmation and modify
         NET.CFG and STARTNET.BAT files under C:\NWNET directory to meet
         your ODI environment.

      5. Reboot your system for the configuration to take effect if you
         select VLM environment in step 2.

      6. Change directory to C:\NWNET then run STARTNET.BAT,  you will
         connect to the file server.

   Setup Procedures for NetWare 3.11/3.12 Client :
      Before you start the installation process,  make sure that
      the  adapter is properly installed and configured. Make sure
      that your NetWare workstation is properly installed.

      1. Copy  PCIODI.COM from this Driver  Diskette subdirectory
         A:\NETWARE to your harddisk.

      2. Create a batch file, or add to your STARTNET.BAT file the commands
         listed above under STARTNET.BAT

      3. Edit the NET.CFG file that you copied over. Edit the file as your
         requirements (see examples above).  If there are two frame types
         listed, whichever frame type is listed first, that is the one that
         the  driver will load.  See above for examples.  The NET.CFG file
         should be in the same directory with the LSL.COM file.

   Setup Procedures for NetWare 4.X Client with vlm:
      The  installation utility  INSTALL.EXE  is  located on NetWare's
      "Workstation for DOS" disk. Run INSTALL.EXE from the Workstation
      for DOS Disk.

      The NetWare Client Install program screen will appear.  You must
      complete each of the questions.  These options are specific to your

      1. Enter the destination directory for the NetWare Client.
         (The default directory is C:\NWCLIENT).

      4. Asks you to select a network driver and provide  configuration
         options.  It uses  the specifications you select to create the
         file NET.CFG. Insert this  drivers disk when prompted for the
         driver disk and specify the driver path A:\NETWARE\DOSODI

      5. Press <Enter> to install

      1. Be sure to add LASTDRIVE=Z to your CONFIG.SYS file for the
         network mappings to work properly.

      2. Installing Multiple LAN Adapters:
         The keyword, EtherID, is provided for multiple LAN adapters in a
         single system by PCIODI.COM. If EtherID is unknown, you can ignore
         it in the  NET.CFG  file and directly run  PCIODI  under the DOS
         prompt, then your screen will  display each adapter's EtherID and
         select one you need.
