Section 1  INSTALLING THE NETWARE DOS ODI CLIENT DRIVER
-------------------------------------------------------

The NetWare DOS ODI Client Driver follows standard Novell 
installation procedures for DOS ODI client drivers.  

Note: If you are running an Extended Memory Manager (EMM), be sure 
to run the most current version of EMM386.EXE (v4.49 or later). 
There is a known problem running previous versions of EMM386.EXE 
with many PCI systems.

Perform the following steps to install the NetWare DOS ODI Client 
Driver:

1.  Verify that the network interface card (NIC) is properly
    configured and installed.  Refer to the adapter's "User 
    Information" document for instructions.

2.  Enter the following command to copy the Novell NetWare DOS ODI 
    client driver to the DOS workstation:

    COPY A:\NOVELL\DOSODI\DEPCA.COM

3.  Copy the Novell NetWare Workstation files to the DOS workstation
    as described in "Novell NetWare ODI Shell for DOS" supplied with 
    your NetWare v3.1X software.

4.  Configure the NET.CFG file.
 
    The client driver and the NetWare workstation files use the 
    NET.CFG file for configuring the driver at load-time.  The 
    \DOSODI subdirectory provides a sample NET.CFG file to help with 
    your driver configuration.

 a. Enter the following command to copy the sample NET.CFG file
    to the same directory as the other driver files:

    COPY A:\NOVELL\DOSODI\NET.CFG

 b. Edit the NET.CFG file to customize it for your system setup.  
    Refer to "Novell NetWare ODI Shell for DOS" and Section 3, 
    SUPPORTED NET.CFG PARAMETERS, for more information on all of 
    the NET.CFG file parameters.

5.  Connect the adapter to the network as described in the 
    adapter's "User Information" document.

6.  To load the Novell NetWare ODI drivers and the adapter ODI 
    client driver, follow the procedure described in "Novell 
    NetWare ODI Shell for DOS".  The following commands are 
    examples:

    LSL.COM
    DEPCA.COM
    IPXODI.COM
    NETX.EXE



Section 3  SUPPORTED NET.CFG PARAMETERS
---------------------------------------

The following parameters are valid under the LINK DRIVER DEPCA 
heading in the NET.CFG file.  Precede each parameter with a TAB or 
white space. Refer to your Novell documentation for more information 
on editing the NET.CFG file.

Parameter:   FRAME ETHERNET_802.2
Description: Configures the DOS ODI client driver to use the 
	     ETHERNET_802.2 frame format.  If the FRAME keyword is 
	     omitted, this is the default frame type.

Parameter:   FRAME ETHERNET_II
Description: Configures the DOS ODI client driver to use the 
	     ETHERNET_II frame format.  

Parameter:   FRAME ETHERNET_SNAP
Description: Configures the DOS ODI client driver to use the 
	     ETHERNET_SNAP frame format.  

Parameter:   FRAME ETHERNET_802.3
Description: Configures the DOS ODI client driver to use the 
	     ETHERNET_802.3 frame format.  
	     This parameter is optional and need not be specified 
	     for proper operation of the driver.


Following is an example NET.CFG file for DOS ODI client driver 
which configures the driver to use the 1st card and the 
ETHERNET_802.2 frame type.

INSTALLING THE ODI DRIVER WITH WINDOWS FOR WORKGROUPS 3.11
----------------------------------------------------------

1. Install Windows for Workgroups v3.11 on your system if it is not 
   already installed.  For more information about setting up and 
   installing Windows for Workgroups 3.11, see your Windows 
   documentation.  Choose "No Network" during this installation.

2. WFW assumes that you will have an ODI client running before you
   initiate Windows.  Set up an ODI subdirectory with your client
   software, your client driver, and a net.cfg file, as you would
   for any ordinary odi client installation.

3. Edit autoexec.bat to add the following lines at the top of the 
   file.  If these files are located in a subdirectory, specify 
   their path in the autoexec.bat as well. 

	lsl.com 
	depca.com
	ipxodi.com
	netx.exe  ( or vlm.exe )

4. Restart your system (to start the Novell client software), and
   enter Windows. Install Novell NetWare support on your WFW system 
   by clicking on the NETWORK icon in the Program Manager window.  
   Next, click on NETWORK SETUP, and then the NETWORKS... button. 
   
5. Depending on the variety of network protocols you may want to 
   run, you may choose:

	Microsoft Network AND Additional Network: other

		OR

	Install Windows support for the following network only

   Then, choose Novell NetWare Workstation Shell.  If you are using 
   VLM to connect to the NetWare Server, you should choose Novell 
   NetWare Workstation Shell 4.0 and above.  If you are using NETX, 
   you may choose either the 3.x or the 4.0 and above versions of 
   NetWare.  Click on OK and then click on OK again (to choose
   IPXODI.COM and LSL.COM).  At this point, the system may prompt 
   you for Novell files from WINUP9.EXE. This file can be obtained 
   from Novell's CompuServe forum.  You may also be prompted for 
   files from the WfW 3.11 installation kit.  You will be told that 
   various initialization files are being updated.
   
   NOTE: Some earlier manufactured versions of the WFW V3.11 
	 install diskettes may not contain all the Novell files 
	 asked for when inserting disks 7 and/or 8. In these cases 
	 you may need a more recently produced version of the WFW 
	 V3.11 kit. Alternatively, the files can be obtained on 
	 Novell's CompuServe Forum.

6. Re-boot the system.  The ODI client driver should load and you 
   should login to the network drives on your server.  At this 
   point, it is best to log on to your NetWare Server before 
   starting Windows.  This will allow all NetWare mapped drives to 
   automatically appear in your WfW File Manager.

7. Start WfW and open the File Manager.  You should see your NetWare 
   drive(s).

  • 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.
