  Introduction
  ------------
    The ODI driver program allows you to run multiple protocol stacks
    and install up to two network adapters in a workstation. This ODI
    driver supports the Port, Node Address, Protocol and Frame options
    for creating your own NET.CFG file. For more information on these
    keywords, please refer to Novell's "NetWare ODI shell for DOS -
    NET.CFG options". This installation assumes that the PCMCIA drivers
    are working properly. Please consult \PCMCIA\README.TXT for
    help with PCMCIA Drivers. Getting Started will describe the
    installation instructions.


  Requirements
  ------------
    .A PCMCIA compatible Laptop
    .An ODI compatible network operating system
    .A CardBus Fast Ethernet PC Card
    .A knowledge of basic DOS commands and editing text files


  Minimum Skill Level
  -------------------
    .A knowledge of basic DOS commands
    .A knowledge of editing text files
    .A knowledge of DOS basic file structure (CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT)
    .A knowledge of the network driver configuration being used
    .Please see Support Options if you are not comfortable will this
     skill level


  Getting Started
  ---------------
    There are 2 methods, manual installation (for NW 3.11 wks) and Novell
    Client install (for NW 3.12 & 4.x)

    Manual Installation
    -------------------
        1. Copy the A:\NETWARE\CB102.COM file from diskette to the Netware
           client directory containing Novell's LSL.COM, IPXODI.COM and
           NETx.COM files.

        2. Follow Novell's instructions on using ODI programs. You can
           substitute the NE2000.COM whenever a reference is made to the
           Hardware Specific Module.

           A typical ODI workstation startup batch file includes:

           >LSL         ; Link Support Layer Module provided by Novell
           >CB102       ; Hardware Specific Module
           >IPXODI      ; IPX Protocol Stack Module provided by Novell
           >NETx        ; DOS Shell Support Module provided by Novell
           >LOGIN

    Novell Client Installation
    --------------------------
        1. Run the NetWare Client Install v1.21
            -Get the 4 Client disks from the network administrator or
            -Run the \NWCLIENT\INSTALL.EXE in a previous installation

        2. A message appears on the screen asking you whether or not you want
           the program to perform modifications on your AUTOEXEC.BAT and
           CONFIG.SYS files.

        3. Answer "Yes".  The program then modifies your AUTOEXEC.BAT and
           CONFIG.SYS files accordingly and creates backup copies.

        4. The following message appears:
            -Install support for MS Windows? (Y/N):

        5. Answer accordingly and provide a path if necessary.

        6. The program displays the following:
            - Configure your workstation for backup by a NetWare server
              running software such as SBACKUP? (Y/N): No

        7. Answer accordingly and provide a path if necessary.

        8. Select a driver for your network board.

        9. From the driver list, select "Other Drivers".

       10. Go to the Insert the Driver Disk dialog box and specify the path
           where the ODI driver and INS files reside.
           For example:  A:\NETWARE

       11. Press Enter and select the target ODI driver.

       12. Specify the driver's optional settings.

       13. Press F10 to save to new configuration.

       14. Highlight "Install press here" and press <Enter> to install.

           The program copies the necessary files for NetWare Client.  Continue
           the installation procedure to completion. Upon completion, a new
           NET.CFG file will be created in your DOS directory.  Typically, this
           file contains the following lines:

              Link Driver CB102
                   PORT E000
                   INT  11
                   ;FRAME Ethernet_802.3
                   FRAME Ethernet_802.2
                        :

           Edit STARTNET.BAT for the ODI workstation performs the following:

              SET NWLANGUAGE=ENGLISH  --Set NetWare 4.X to English language
              LSL               --Link Support Layer Module provided by Novell
              CB102             --Hardware Specific Module
              IPXODI            --IPX Protocol Stack Module provided by Novell
              VLM               --DOS Support Module provided by Novell
              F:                --Change to connected device
              LOGIN .ADMIN      --Login to file server as user ADMIN

       15. Run STARTNET to access the Novell network.

    NET.CFG Keywords Available
    -------------------------

        This note lists the available NET.CFG keywords for the ODI DOS
        device driver users.

        Most of the keywords are optional and come with default values.
        The available keywords, led by ";", for the NET.CFG file are as
        follows:

                   *** Example NET.CFG file ***

  Keyword Definition
  ------------------

        Node Address  -  This keyword specifies the node address
                         (in hexadecimal notation)used by the adapter.
                         This option is used only to override the node
                         address stored in the adapter. If this keyword
                         is included, the specified address will be used
                         instead of the adapter's actual node address.

        PORT          -  This keyword specifies the I/O base address
                         used by the adapter. This value must match the
                         actual I/O base address setting on the adapter.
                         If this keyword is not specified, the default
                         value will be put into effect.

        INT           -  This keyword specifies the interrupt line used
                         by the adapter. This value must match the actual
                         IRQ setting on the adapter. If this keyword is
                         not specified, the default value will be put
                         into effect.

        FRAME        -  This keyword specifies the supported frame types.
                        Four types are available:

                        ETHERNET_802.3, ETHERNET_802.2,
                        ETHERNET_II and ETHERNET_SNAP.

        AUTOSENSE     - Auto detect the speed and duplex mode.

        100_Full      - User force the media to 100 Mbps and full duplex
                        mode.

        100_Half      - User force the media to 100 Mbps and half duplex
                        mode.

        10_Full       - User force the media to 10 Mbps and full duplex
                        mode.

        10_Half       - User force the media to 10 Mbps and half duplex
                        mode.
