I.1     Device Driver and Utility Usage

        --------------------------------------------------
        PICC.EXE (PCMCIA/IDE Adaptor Card Services Client)
        --------------------------------------------------

        This driver supports the PCMCIA 2.1+ Card/Socket services
        specifications.  It is mandatory to load this driver before
        using the PICD.EXE device driver.

        Installation Format:

                DEVICE=[drive:][path]PICC.EXE [/P:xxx,yy]

                where [/P:xxx,yy]
                    specifies the I/O port base and interrupt number that
                    the Adaptor Card Services tries to allocate for this
                    card in default.

                    'xxx' is the base address (hexadecimal notation) of
                    IDE port. The permissible assignment of the base
                    address are as 168, 1E8 and 170.

                    'yy' is the interrupt number (decimal notation) of
                    the corresponding IDE port. The permissible interrupt
                    number are 9, 10, 11, 12 and 15.

        Note 1: you might emulate a secondary enhanced IDE port on the
                PCMCIA/IDE adaptor card as shown below:

                DEVICE=PICC.EXE /P:170,15

        Note 2: this client driver will search for IO ranges from the
                default base address (if specified) and then 168, 1E8
                to 170 and search for IRQ from the default interrupt
                number (if specified) and then 10, 11, 15, 9 to 12.

        ------------------------------------------
        PICD.EXE (PCMCIA/IDE CD-ROM Device Driver)
        ------------------------------------------

        This device driver requires that the PICC.EXE client driver to
        be installed before using the PICD.EXE driver. And this CD-ROM
        device driver will search for CD-ROM drives for Enhanced IDE
        ports (namely 1f0,14 and 170,15) and then the IO ranges/IRQ
        that PICC.EXE allocates.

        Installation Format:

                DEVICE=[drive:][path]PICD.EXE /D:<drive name> [/R]

                where /D:<drive name>
                    specifies the drive name for MSCDEX.EXE to match,
                    and the default name is _PICD_$$.

                [/R]
                    reserves one drive letter for plug and play purpose,
                    if this parameter is used then the CD-ROM drive need
                    not exist to be initialized when system boots up.
                    However, be sure that the PCMCIA/IDE adaptor card
                    is inserted properly to allow Socket/Card/Client
                    services to recognize its existence.


        Please install MSCDEX.EXE in AUTOEXEC.BAT file as shown below:

                MSCDEX /D:<drive name>

        ----------------------------------
        INSTALL.EXE (Installation Program)
        ----------------------------------

        You have to run this installation program under DOS environment;
        and this program will copy the necessary files into the target
        directory and automatically make changes to your system files.


I.2     Error Messages

    a.  *** Client is already installed

        PICC.EXE refuses to be installed twice, you have to take out one
        line of client driver installation from the CONFIG.SYS file.

    b.  *** Card Services Release 2.1 not found

        The Client driver PICC.EXE needs a Card Services Release 2.1
        installed in system for registration. To remedy this problem, you
        might reinstall or reconfigure your system for your PCMCIA sockets.

    c.  *** Client registration failed

        The Client driver PICC.EXE failed to register although a Card
        Services Release 2.1 is found. Reconfiguration is recommended.

    d.  *** Error reading tuple data

        Normally, a Card Services Client for system resources allocation
        is needed to be installed for other Client driver to read tuple
        data correctly from PCMCIA cards.

    e.  *** Card Services Client not found.

        The CD-ROM device driver refuses to be installed if the PICC.EXE
        client driver is not installed before using the PICD.EXE driver.
        The installation program INSTALL.EXE can be used to do the chores
        for you automatically.

    f.  *** Failed in callback registration.

        There is a callback interface between the client driver PICC.EXE
        and the CD-ROM device driver PICD.EXE and only one callback
        interface is allowed. And this will also ensure only one copy of
        CD-ROM device driver can be installed in system.

    g.  *** Cannot locate any CD-ROM drive.

        After the system boots up, the CD-ROM device driver searches for
        CD-ROM drives to install. It will abandon to load if there is not
        any CD-ROM drive connected to the system.

        You can use /R option to utilize plug and play function, the device
        driver will be installed to reserve one drive letter even the system
        does not connect any CD-ROM drive while the system boots up.

II.1    CD-ROM Filter

        --------------------------------------
        OS2PICD.FLT (PCMCIA/IDE CD-ROM Filter)
        --------------------------------------

        This driver is a Client to support the PCMCIA Card/Socket services
        specifications, and it is also a CD-ROM filter to allocate the
        portable PCMCIA CD-ROM drive.

        You should install a Card/Socket services in the CONFIG.SYS file
        before the line this filter is installed.

        Installation Format:

                BASEDEV=OS2PICD.FLT [/P:xxx,yy] [/V]

                where [/P:xxx,yy]
                    specifies the I/O port base and interrupt number that
                    the Adaptor Card Services tries to allocate for this
                    card in default.

                    'xxx' is the base address (hexadecimal notation) of
                    IDE port. The permissible assignment of the base
                    address are as 168, 1E8 and 170.

                    'yy' is the interrupt number (decimal notation) of
                    the corresponding IDE port. The permissible interrupt
                    number are 9, 10, 11, 12 and 15.

                [/V]
                    verbose mode, displays the initialization message.

        -------------------------------------------------
        INSTALL2.EXE (Installation Program for OS/2 Warp)
        -------------------------------------------------

        This program will copy the device driver into the booting directory
        and automatically make changes to the system files.
