3 Server: NetWare 3.11 server 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.

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.
