1.0     INTRODUCTION

The installation of this fax/modem is very simple if you follow the 
instructions carefully. The manual will provide most of the installation 
instructions for various operating systems. Please refer to the ADDENDUM
section of this README.TXT file to view additional information not available
at the time the manual went to press.

2.0     DETAILED AT COMMAND SET

In the manual you will find a Basic AT Command Set. If you are looking for a 
command that is not covered in the Basic AT Command Set you will need to 
refer to the detailed AT Command Set for your particular modem.

To determine which file you should use with your modem, turn the modem over 
and look on the top of the back label. The number on the top of the label 
will match one of the .TXT files on this disk.  
		
	For instance:

        FM144C, FM144D                  - CIR144.TXT
        FM336SK, FM560SK                - CIRRUS.TXT
        FM288T, FM288M, FM336XT         - ATT.TXT
        FM288LK, FM336LK, FM560LK       - LUCENT.TXT
        FM144INT, FM288INT, FM288B, 
        FM336INT, FM336C, FM560RK       - ROCKWELL.TXT
        
The .TXT file has information about your particular modem as well as a
Detailed AT Command set.

3.0     FAX MODEM POINT ENABLER

The DOS point enabler, PMXFM.EXE is used to initialize the modem when you
are not using Card & Socket Services.  You can only use the Point Enabler
under DOS. DO NOT use this point enabler with any other operating system,
such as Windows 95 or Windows NT.

	PMXFM [H|?] [F] [S=n] [M=xxxx] [C=n] [I=nn]

	where
	    H or ? requests this menu
	    F force the Fax/Modem to be configured as specified
	    S specifies socket (0,1)
	    M specifies memory window segment
	    C specifies COM port (1,2,3,4)
	    I specifies interrupt requrest (IRQ) level
	    n is a decimal digit
	    x is a hexadecimal digit

	The F and M switches are normally not necessary, unless card services
        exists and users have trouble configuring the DataLink Card
	through the card service.

	Switches are not case sensitive.
	
	Defaults: 
	    S=first M=D000 C=4 I=3
 
4.0     TECHNICAL NOTES FOR POINT ENABLER

1.      To avoid conflicts between modem and other serial devices, the
	following rules should be followed

	    If modem use COM1, other devices can use COM2 or COM4 only.
	    If modem use COM2, other devices can use COM1 or COM3 only.
	    If modem use COM3, other devices can use COM2 or COM4 only.
	    If modem use COM4, other devices can use COM1 or COM3 only.

	Unlike a real IBM-PC COM port, a PCMCIA modem card has no way to 
	signal to the interface controller that it is time to tri-state 
	the shared interrupt request line.
	 
2.      If you wish to enable the fax/modem each time the computer boots up,
	you should add the following line to AUTOEXEC.BAT.
	
			 example:  C:\PMXFM.EXE C=4 I=3 
		   
	Ensure that you have the PCMCIA Modem inserted in one of the slots 
	before rebooting.

3.      Most communication software follows the Interrupt settings and 
	I/O address settings as shown below:
		
			IRQ Number        I/O Address

	       COM1:        4                 3F8
	       COM2:        3                 2F8
	       COM3:        4                 3E8
	       COM4:        3                 2E8
			
4.      If you are using Windows 3.1X, you can change the IRQ under the 
	CONTROL PANEL - PORTS - ADVANCED dialog box. If you change the
	COMPORT and IRQ under Windows, be sure that it matches the parameter 
	in the PMXFM.EXE line.
