NetWare* 3.11 Server Driver Installation Notes
==============================================

Location of driver: \NWSERVER\311LAN\E100B.LAN (ODI 3.2 
                   Assembly Specification driver)

Location of NLM's:  On Novell's automated services.
   
   ETHERTSM.NLM  04-18-95
   LSLENH.NLM    12-21-94
   PATCHMAN.NLM  01-22-96
   MSM31X.NLM    11-23-94
   MONITOR.NLM   10-26-92 (v1.75 or higher, otherwise abends will occur)
      
      Note: NetWare 3.1x needs MSM31X.NLM renamed to MSM.NLM.



Overview
--------
NetWare 3.11 requires an ODI 3.2 Assembly Specification driver.  This
driver is in the \NWSERVER\311LAN\ directory of the Configuration and
Drivers disk. The directory contains the following files:

     E100B.LAN (3.2 spec server driver)
     E100B.LDI (Installation file)
     NW311.TXT (This file)


Sample load commands
--------------------
LOAD C:<PATH>\PATCHMAN
LOAD C:<PATH>\LSLENH
LOAD C:<PATH>\MSM
LOAD C:<PATH>\ETHERTSM
LOAD C:<PATH>\E100B SLOT=n FRAME=ETHERNET_802.3
BIND IPX TO E100B NET=xxxxxxxx


General instructions
--------------------

1  Install NetWare 3.11 according to the NetWare 3.11 installation
   manual.

2  Copy the E100B.LAN server driver and any updated NLMs to the NetWare
   server's hard drive.

   If you can't log in to the server (before starting the server) copy
   the E100B.LAN driver to the root directory of the server's hard
   drive.

   If you can log into the server, copy the files to the SYSTEM
   subdirectory. If you do this, you won't need to specify a path on the
   load line. If you copy it to another directory, make sure the LOAD
   statement includes the correct path.

3  Modify the server's STARTUP.NCF to preallocate server buffers with
   the following:
      
      SET MAXIMUM PHYSICAL RECEIVE PACKET SIZE = 2048 (or larger)

4  Start the server. At the server console, issue the load and bind
   statement.
      
      LOAD C:<PATH>\PATCHMAN
      LOAD C:<PATH>\LSLENH
      LOAD C:<PATH>\MSM
      LOAD C:<PATH>\ETHERTSM
      LOAD C:<PATH>\E100B SLOT=x FRAME=ETHERNET_802.3
      BIND IPX TO E100B NET=xxxxxxxx

   Where:

   SLOT=x specifies the PCI device number. Substitute x with the valid
   value for the adapter. You will be prompted if you don't specify a
   slot number.

   NET=xxxxxxxx is the unique network address for that LAN segment.

   The default frame type is 802.2.  If your workstations needs to use
   the 802.3 frame type, see the section later in this document about
   using multiple frame types on one adapter.

5  Add the load and bind statements you need to the server's
   AUTOEXEC.NCF file so the PRO/100+ adapter driver loads
   automatically each time the server starts.


Hints and tips
==============


1  Installing multiple adapters:

   If you have multiple adapters in a single server, each adapter must
   have a different NET number and SLOT number. Also, you may want to
   name each adapter. For example:
      
      LOAD C:\E100B SLOT=3 NAME=LAN_A
      BIND IPX TO LAN_A NET=222
      LOAD C:\E100B SLOT=4 NAME=LAN_B
      BIND IPX TO LAN_B NET=333

2  If you have problems loading the driver on multiple adapters and the
   initialization fails due to "Insufficient RCBs," increase the number
   of buffers allocated to the server.

   Add the following to STARTUP.NCF:
   
   SET MINIMUM PACKET RECEIVE BUFFERS = 100 (or larger)
   SET MAXIMUM PACKET RECEIVE BUFFERS = 500 (or larger)

   The MINIMUM value you specify must be at least 30 times the number of
   PRO/100+ adapters in the computer.

   Recommended settings:
   
   1-3 adapters:  100
   4 adapters:    150

   The MAXIMUM you can specify depends on the amount of memory in the
   server, but it must be greater than the MINIMUM.

3  Installing one adapter with multiple frame types:
   
   When binding multiple frame types to one adapter, enter a LOAD and
   BIND statement for each frame type. Each LOAD statement uses the same
   SLOT number, but each BIND statement needs a unique network number.
   You must also include a name on each load line to avoid being 
   prompted for the board to bind IPX to.
      
      Example:
      
      LOAD C:\E100B SLOT=3 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.3 NAME=LAN8023
      BIND IPX TO LAN8023 NET=77777
      LOAD C:\E100B SLOT=3 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.2 NAME=LAN8022
      BIND IPX TO LAN8022 NET=88888

4  Optional LOAD line parameters.

        additional information.

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.
