   PCI slots:

   1.  Using the appropriate motherboard jumper, enable bus master
        operations for the selected PCI slot.

   2.  Using the appropriate motherboard jumper, select the interrupt
        to the selected PCI slot.

    Client Directory:       C:\NOVELL\CLIENT32
    Windows Directory:      C:\WINDOWS
    LAN driver type:        32-bit LAN drivers
    LAN driver:             Siemens OfficeLAN PCI 10/100 TX Fast Ethernet Adapter

  10. NetWare Client 32 for DOS will copy these files to the computer
       and modify the configuration files to match your setting.

 B) Documentation
   1. If you want to load the multiple frame types, you will get the
       following message during the driver loading:

        "Do you want to load another frame type for a previously
         loaded board?  Y/N ".

      You can add the slot number to the command line in the
       STARTNET.BAT to avoid it.

   2. Make sure that the FIRST NETWORK DRIVE = F statement is added
       in the NET.CFG file under the "NetWare DOS Requester" section.

   3. Check the LASTDRIVE setting in the CONFIG.SYS file, it must
        have the LASTDRIVE=Z statement under NetWare Client 32 for DOS.

 C) Descriptions of Configurations

   The following descriptions are the sample files after the
    installtion of NetWare Client 32 for DOS :


        NetWare DOS Requester

        Protocol IPX
          IPX SOCKETS 40


        LOAD C:\NOVELL\CLIENT32\L100.LAN SLOT=1 FRAME=Ethernet_802.2
        LOAD C:\NOVELL\CLIENT32\L100.LAN SLOT=1 FRAME=Ethernet_802.3

Setting Driver Parameters

  This driver provides the parameters to set the functionality of
   adapter.  The parameters are listed as below :

   SLOT     The driver uses the slot number to identify the adapter.
            That is, the first adapter is considered to be in the slot 1,
              the next in slot 2, and so on.

            If you want to load those multiple frame types, you
              should specify the slot number of the adapter.

   MEDIA    Specify the media type of adapter to use (between 0 to 5).

      0   -   auto-sense the media, including run-time auto-sense (default)
      1   -   100Base-Tx Half-Duplex mode
      2   -   100Base-Tx Full-Duplex mode
      3   -   10Base-T Half-Duplex mode
      4   -   10Base-T Full-Duplex mode
      5   -   10Base-2 (BNC)

   THRESHOLD Specify the Tx Threshold mode of adapter to use (between 0 to 6).

      0   -   Store and Forward (default)
      1   -   Threshold 36 Bytes
      2   -   Threshold 72 Bytes
      3   -   Threshold 96 Bytes
      4   -   Threshold 128 Bytes
      5   -   Threshold 160 Bytes
      6   -   Threshold 256 Bytes

NOTE:  The TxThreshold lets you choose the number of bytes read from the host
        memory into the transmit FIFO before the transmission. If the frame
        length is less than the threshold value, the adapter will start to
        transmit after a full frame is in the FIFO. The performance is better,
        if the smaller value is chosen. But if you have compatible problem, the
        Store and Forward or the bigger value is recommended.
