DEVICE DRIVER INSTALLATION GUIDE
=============================================================================

  ====================================================
  | (A):  To install the SCO Unix LLI Device Driver: |
  ====================================================

         << Software Revision Requirements:>>

           o ODT 2.0 or higher version, or
             SCO Unix 3.2.4 or higher version, or
             SCO OpenServer 5.0 or higher version

       1.  Copy the file LFE_LLI.Z (in subdirectory A:\SCOUNIX) to
           SCO Unix machine.

              doscp a:/scounix/LFE_LLI.Z LFE_LLI.Z

           The number in parenthese near the file's name (see release notes)
           is the checksum for the file. To verify, use:

              sum -r LFE_LLI.Z
           and compare the results.

       2.  Uncompress LFE_LLI.Z to LFE_LLI, using:
              uncompress LFE_LLI

       3.  Copy the file to a diskette. To create a 3.5" floppy in drive 0,
           use:
              dd if=LFE_LLI of=/dev/rfd0135ds18

       4.  Run custom. From the menu select:
           Custom -> Install -> A New Product -> Entire Product

           For SCO OpenServer (Everest), run the Software Manager. From the
           menus select:
              Software -> Install New -> From Host -> Media Floppy -> Full

       5.  Put the distribution diskette in the drive and select continue.

       6.  When prompted for distribution floppy 1, just press enter.

       7.  When custom has completed, remove the diskette and quit custom.

       8.  Run netconfig. Add the desired chain. The LFE_LLI
           drivers are called: lfe0, lfe1, lfe2 and lfe3. Remember that lfe0
           must be configured first, before any other driver is configured.

           Note: For boards with more than one LFE card on them,
                 a driver must be installed for each active port on the
                 board. Thus, if a board has two separate ports, two separate
                 chains must be created in order to connect both ports to
                 networks. This is similar to installing two boards, each with
                 one port.

                 Not all ports must be active. If only one port is used,
                 it must be the first port (as it is found on the bus
                 by the PCI BIOS).

       9.  When the chain has been configured, select 'q' from the netconfig
           menu. If you don't wish to modify the space.c file relink the kernel
           at the prompt.

       10. If you wish to change parameters in the space.c file, edit
           /etc/conf/pack.d/lfe0/space.c and make the required changes.
           The changes will apply to all the installed boards.

       11. To activate the adapter, you must reboot. When the system boots, you
           should see the following message among the other configuration
           messages:

           %lfe   0xFC00-0xFE00  5  -  type=10M, TP, addr=12-34-56-78-9a-bc

              or

           %lfe   0xFC00-0xFE00  5  -  type=100M, TP, addr=12-34-56-78-9a-bc

           with the appropriate I/O addresses, IRQ, serial media and IEEE
           address.

  ====================================================
  | (B):  To install the SCO Unix MDI Device Driver: |
  ====================================================

         << Software Revision Requirements:>>

           o SCO OpenServer 5.0 or higher version

       1.  Put the LFE LAN adapter to your machine.

       2.  Copy the file LFE_MDI (in subdirectory A:\SCOUNIX) to
           SCO Unix machine.

              doscp a:/scounix/LFE_MDI LFE_MDI

           The number in parenthese near the file's name (see release notes)
           is the checksum for the file. To verify, use:

              sum -r LFE_MDI
           and compare the results.

       3.  Copy the file to a diskette. To create a 3.5" floppy in drive 0,
           use:
              dd if=LFE_MDI of=/dev/rfd0135ds18

       4.  For SCO OpenServer (Everest)
           custom->
              Software -> Install New -> From Host -> Media Floppy -> Full

       5.  Put the distribution diskette in the drive and select continue.

       6.  When prompted for distribution floppy 1, just press enter.

       7.  When custom has completed, remove the diskette and quit custom.

       8.  Run netconfig. Add the desired chain. The LFE_MDI
           drivers are called: lfe0, lfe1, lfe2 and lfe3.

       9.  When the chain has been configured, select 'q' from the netconfig
           menu. If you don't wish to modify the space.c file relink the kernel
           at the prompt.

       10. If you wish to change parameters in the space.c file, edit
           /etc/conf/pack.d/lfe/space.c and make the required changes.
           The changes will apply to all the installed boards.

       11. To activate the adapter, you must reboot. When the system boots, you
           should see the following message among the other configuration
           messages:

           %lfe   0xFC00-0xFE00  5  -  type=10M, TP, addr=12-34-56-78-9a-bc

              or

           %lfe   0xFC00-0xFE00  5  -  type=100M, TP, addr=12-34-56-78-9a-bc

           with the appropriate I/O addresses, IRQ, serial media and IEEE
           address.

=============================================================================
PARAMETERS
=============================================================================

     The Space.c file contains the different parameters that can be modified.

     The meaning of each is explained in detail in the Space.c file, including
     allowed values for each parameter. The values in Space.c apply to ALL
     the installed boards.

     Space.c is NOT the place to modify the board's slot number line.
     This must be modified in netconfig, by running the reconfiguration
     script.


=============================================================================
ERRORS and TROUBLE SHOOTING
=============================================================================

    1. Mismatch between PCI configuration and netconfig/space.c:

       In order for the adapter to work correctly, the same values that are
       used during the PCI configuration (e.g CFLT) must be used in the
       space.c file. Mismatches may cause the adapter to malfunction, or even
       hang the system.

       Currently, the PCI setup takes precedence except for the value for the
       latency timer, which is taken from the space.c file.

    2. Driver uses 32-bit protected mode PCI BIOS calls:

       This driver uses 32-bit protected mode PCI BIOS calls. If your machine
       can not support this mode, this driver will not work.

    3. Driver binds to wrong PCI board (network):

       (A): For LLI driver:
          When multiple PCI boards are installed, the chains are bound to
          the adapters in the order that the adapters are found on the PCI
          bus by the PCI BIOS. Thus, lfe0 will bind to the first adapter
          found by the PCI BIOS, lfe1 to the second etc. Removing or adding
          boards without changing the configuration in netconfig can cause
          a shift in the order that chains are bound. Also, mis-identifying
          the order in which the adapters are found by the BIOS can cause
          wrong bindings. This is especially true when using boards with
          PCI-PCI bridges. The adapters on such boards are located on a PCI
          bus with a number higher than 0 (bus #1, #2 etc.) and will be found
          by the PCI BIOS after all the devices on bus zero.

       (B): For MDI driver:
          It will have the problem, if you changed the PCI slot or changed the
          SCO disk to another PC.
          Please use the "netconfig" command to select "remove the LAN
          adapter", and then "add the LAN adapter" to match the changing.

How To Update Drivers Manually

After your driver has been downloaded, follow these simple steps to install it.

  • Expand the archive file (if the download file is in zip or rar format).

  • If the expanded file has an .exe extension, double click it and follow the installation instructions.

  • Otherwise, open Device Manager by right-clicking the Start menu and selecting Device Manager.

  • Find the device and model you want to update in the device list.

  • Double-click on it to open the Properties dialog box.

  • From the Properties dialog box, select the Driver tab.

  • Click the Update Driver button, then follow the instructions.

Very important: You must reboot your system to ensure that any driver updates have taken effect.
