      4. Select Advanced options, and make sure the parameters match the
         card settings.  Check  keyword "EtherID",  which is provided by
         RTSND.DOS. The installation program copies the necessary files
         and creates  PROTOCOL.INI for use with the adapter.

      5. Continue the installation per Windows for Workgroups instructions.

             Workgroups hangs.


      Installing Multiple LAN Adapters:
     -------------------------------------
         There are two different method to complete it:

         (a) Under  DOS  mode, you can modify the EtherID or BusNo+DeviceNo
             keyword field in file C:\WFW311\PROTOCOL.INI.

         (b) Or you can enter Windows for WorkGroup and follow  above
             setup procedure step 2,then click on "Setup.." button, select
             "Advanced...",fill EtherID in Value item. Last step to select
             OK and close NETWORK SETUP.
