   Server Driver for NetWare 4.X

   This document describes the procedure to install the NetWare v4.X
   server driver for PCI Ethernet adapter.

   Location of Driver:     \NETWARE\SERVER\4x\PCISRV.LAN

   Installation Procedure :
      Before you start the installation  process,  make sure that
      the Novell NetWare v4.X server is properly installed.
      Similarly, your adapter should also be properly installed in your
      1. Insert this Driver Diskette into drive A and check the contents
         of subdirectory \NETWARE\SERVER\4X,  It should contain the
         following files :

         PCISRV.LANÄ  Novell NetWare V4.X Server Driver
         PCISRV.LDIÄ  Novell NetWare V4.X Server Driver Installation
                      Information File

      2. At the  NetWare prompt (indicated by the Server name), run the
         INSTALL.NLM program by typing:

         server name: LOAD INSTALL <Enter>

      3. Select "Maintenance/Selective Install" and press <Enter>.

      4. Select  " LAN Driver Options (Configure/Load/...) "  and press

      5. Press the <Ins> key to specify other drivers to install.

      6. Press  <F3>  and specify the driver path (A:\NETWARE\SERVER\4X)
         and press <Enter>.

      7. The PCISRV.LAN driver should appear in your choice list for the
         'Select a  LAN  Driver' field. Choose this  driver to start the
         driver loading and  binding  procedure.  This will allow you to
         load and bind all 4 frame types supported by NetWare.

      8. Add the LOAD and BIND statements you require to the server's
         AUTOEXEC.NCF file  so that  the  LAN  driver  will  be loaded
         automatically once the server starts up.

      Installation Notes:
      1. Installing Multiple LAN Adapters:
         If  you  have  multiple  LAN  adapters in a single server, each
         adapter  must  have a  different network  number.  You may also
         want to name each adapter for ease of management. For example:

         LOAD PCISRV EtherID=0000B4000001 FRAME=Ethernet_802.2 NAME=LAN_A
         BIND IPX TO LAN_A NET=11
         LOAD PCISRV EtherID=0000B4000002 FRAME=Ethernet_802.3 NAME=LAN_B
         BIND IPX TO LAN_B NET=22

         (The keyword, EtherID, provided for multiple LAN cards by the
         driver  PCISRV.LAN  is the ethernet address of a adapter.  If
         EtherID is unknown, you can ignore it and directly LOAD under the
         server prompt,  then  your  screen  will display every adapter
         ethernet address).

      2. The default frame type for NetWare 4.X binding is Ethernet_802.2
         and not Ethernet_802.3. This is the difference between v3.11 and
         v4.X of NetWare operating system.

      3. Edit the AUTOEXEC.NCF if you want to change some parameters.
         For example,  if you're using a  NetWare  3.11  workstation  and
         want  to log into a NetWare v4.X server. The default frame type
         of NetWare 3.11 is Ethernet 802.3, while that of NetWare v4.X is
         Ethernet  802.2.  Before you can log into the NetWare v4.X, make
         sure  there  is  a protocol  binding for  Ethernet  802.3 in the
         server's AUTOEXEC.NCF file.

   If problems occur during the binding process, the screen will prompt
   you  error  messages.  Please refer to your NetWare 386 manual for
   details on these messages.
