LANtastic 6.0 Introduction: ------------- This document describes the procedure to setup NDIS driver on LANtastic 6.0 operating system for ISA Plug&Play ethernet card. We provide two NDIS drivers. The PNPNDIS.DOS driver is a normal driver and PNPNDT.DOS is a turbo NDIS driver. It is highly recommended to use the turbo driver PNPNDT.DOS to improve network performance. Location of Driver: \MSLANMAN.DOS\DRIVERS\ETHERNET\ISAPNP\PNPNDIS.DOS \MSLANMAN.DOS\DRIVERS\ETHERNET\ISAPNP\PNPNDT.DOS Sample Configuration Files: -------------------------- CONFIG.SYS: DEVICE=C:\LANTASTI\PROTMAN.DOS /I:C:\LANTASTI REM For Normal Driver DEVICE=C:\LANMAN.DOS\DRIVERS\ETHERNET\ISAPNP\PNPNDIS.DOS REM or For Turbo Driver DEVICE=C:\LANMAN.DOS\DRIVERS\ETHERNET\ISAPNP\PNPNDT.DOS FILES=40 BUFFERS=30 STARTNET.BAT: @echo off rem LANtastic Version 6.00 installed 95/05/23 14:11:21 rem (for Windows) C: cd C:\LANTASTI SET LAN_CFG=C:\LANTASTI rem If LANtastic is disabled, skip everything.
