   1 Server: NetWare 4.11 server
                                                                      

NetWare* 4.11 Server Driver Installation Notes
==============================================

Location of driver: \NWSERVER\E100B.LAN (ODI Assembly Specification
                    version 3.31.  An earlier version of this driver
                    ships with NetWare 4.11.)

Location of NLM's:  Ships with NetWare 4.11, updates also available in
                    LANDRx.EXE (where x is the latest version) on
                    Novell's automated services.
      
      NOTE: For NetWare 4.10 installation instructions please see
            NW312.TXT.


Sample Load Commands
====================
   
   LOAD C:<PATH>\E100B SLOT=n FRAME=ETHERNET_802.2
   BIND IPX TO E100B NET=xxxxxxxx


General Instructions
====================

1  If you're doing a NEW installation of NetWare 4.11, install it
   according to the NetWare installation instructions. The
   installation process will automatically detect the PRO/100+. A
   message appears indicating that it detected the hardware but found
   more than one driver supporting it. The hardware ID you'll see
   displayed for the PRO/100+ is PCI.8086.1229.XXXX.XXXX.XX. Press
   Enter for a list of drivers. DO NOT select the Intel PRO/100 LAN
   Adapter from the list. Press F-10 to install the newer
   driver from the Configuration and Drivers disk.  Choose 
   Select additional or Modify Selected Disk/LAN drivers. Follow the
   installation screens to complete the installation of the driver.
   The necessary load and bind parameters will automatically be added
   to the AUTOEXEC.NCF file with Ethernet_802.2 and Ethernet_802.3
   bound to the adapter.  If you need to change the frame types for
   your network, edit the AUTOEXEC.NCF after the installation is
   completed.
      
      Note: A good way to determine the slot number is to let the
            driver load without a slot number.  NetWare will prompt
            with valid slot number(s) for the adapter(s). Select one
            of them.

2  For servers already installed with NetWare 4.11, start the server.
   At the server console, issue the load and bind statement(s) in this
   order:
   
        LOAD C:<PATH>\E100B SLOT=n FRAME=ETHERNET_802.2
        BIND IPX TO E100B NET=xxxxxxxx
      
      Note: If MSM and ETHERTSM Nlms aren't loaded, they'll
            automatically load before the driver.

   Where:

   SLOT=n  specifies the NBI (NetWare Bus Interface) slot number.
   Substitute n with the valid value for the adapter.  You will be
   prompted with the slot numbers of installed PRO/100+ adapters. The
   NBI slot number is different from the slot number indicated in the
   adapter SETUP.EXE utility.

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

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

3  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=10001 NAME=LAN_A
      BIND IPX TO LAN_A NET=1234
      LOAD C:\E100B SLOT=10003 NAME=LAN_B
      BIND IPX TO LAN_B NET=5678

   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:
      100 per adapter (or port for multiport adapters)

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


2  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 adapter to bind IPX to.
      
      Example:
      
      LOAD C:\E100B SLOT=10003 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.3 NAME=LAN8023
      BIND IPX TO LAN8023 NET=77777
      LOAD C:\E100B SLOT=10003 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.2 NAME=LAN8022
      BIND IPX TO LAN8022 NET=88888


3  Optional LOAD line parameters.
   
   See the NetWare Server Parameters readme file (NWPARAM.TXT)
   for additional information on the following keywords:

        SLOT, FORCEDUPLEX, SPEED, NODE, FRAME, and TXTHRESHOLD.

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.
