           Packet Driver

       C. Can copy the proper files to the subdirectories where the network
          operating system files are installed.

     2.2 What You Need Before Running INSTALL

       A. Before installing your PCMCIA Ethernet Card, you must first
          make sure that your network operating system is already installed.

       B. Make sure that the PCMCIA Ethernet Card has been inserted
          into your system's PCMCIA socket.

     2.3 How to run INSTALL program

       To run INSTALL, at the DOS prompt type:

           A:\>INSTALL

       Read each screen carefully and respond appropriately to each prompt.


     3.0 Manually Installing and Configuring the Enabling Software

       3.1 Overview of Enabling Software

         As with other PCMCIA devices, the PCMCIA Ethernet Card must
         be enabled by a software program before it can be used.

         There are two kinds of PCMCIA enabler software:

           * Direct Enablers.
           * Card and Socket Services client drivers.

         Whenever the card has been powered off (when the card is removed
         or the computer goes into "sleep" mode), the direct enabler must
         be executed again.

       3.2 Installing the Enabling Software Manually
     

         3.2.1 Overview of the Direct Enabler --- DIRECTEN.EXE

           If you do not have card and socket service software installed,
           you should install direct enabler to enable your PCMCIA
           Ethernet Card.

           The direct enabler DIRECTEN.EXE program contained on this disk
           is used both as a device driver used in your computer's
           CONFIG.SYS file, and also as an executable program run from the
           DOS prompt.

           This version will directly configure the PCMCIA Ethernet
           Card for the following PCMCIA controllers:

             Intel 82365SL (and compatibles)
             Vadem VG-365/465
             Cirrus Logic
             Databook TCIC
             Sharp PHIC
             IBM ThinkPad
             Toshiba 3300

           DIRECTEN.EXE can also enable the card using Socket Services
           versions 1.xx and 2.xx, if Socket Services is present but Card
           Services is not.

         3.2.2 Using DIRECTEN.EXE in CONFIG.SYS

           You can create or modify your system's CONFIG.SYS using a text
           editor.

           The direct enabler CONFIG.SYS command line has the format:

             DEVICE=[path]\DIRECTEN.EXE [/IRQ=x] [/MEM=mm] [/IO=nnn]

             where [path] is the drive and pathname of the directory
             containing DIRECTEN.EXE.

             Valid options:
                     x   = Interrupt number (3, 4, 5, 9, 10, 11, 12, 15)
                     mm  = Hex memory location (e.g. C0, C8, D0, D8)
                     nnn = IO range (300, 320, 340, 360)

         3.2.3 Using DIRECTEN.EXE from the DOS Prompt

           The direct enabler DOS command line has the format:

             DIRECTEN [/IRQ=x] [/MEM=mm] [/IO=nnn] [/SKT=z] [/O] [/?]

             Valid options:
                     x   = Interrupt number (3, 4, 5, 9, 10, 11, 12, 15)
                     mm  = Hex memory location (e.g. C0, C8, D0, D8)
                     nnn = IO range (300, 320, 340, 360)
                     z   = Socket (0 to 7).
                     /O  (overwrites current socket settings).
                     /?  Displays this screen.

             Note: if the /SKT parameter is omitted, DIRECTEN.EXE will
                   automatically detect the socket where the card is
                   inserted.
     

         3.2.4 Cautions

           A. If you add the "DEVICE=[path]\DIRECTEN.EXE ...." line after
              any memory management software, you should tell the memory
              manager to exclude the memory area set by /MEM=mm parameter.
              Consult the following table to determine what memory address
              ranges to exclude:

                Setting         Range
                /MEM=C0         X=C000-C7FF
                /MEM=C8         X=C800-CFFF
                /MEM=D0         X=D000-D7FF
                /MEM=D8         X=D800-DFFF

           B. If Socket Services software is installed, but Card Services
              is not, you should add the "DEVICE=[path]\DIRECTEN.EXE ... "
              line after the Socket Services software DEVICE= line.

       3.3 Installing the Enabling Software Manually for OS/2

         3.3.1 Overview of the Direct Enabler --- DIRECTEN.OS2

           If you do not have card and socket service software installed,
           you should install the direct enabler to enable your
           PCMCIA Ethernet Card.

           The direct enabler DIRECTEN.OS2 program contained on this disk
           is used as a device driver used in your computer's CONFIG.SYS
           file.

           This version will directly configure the PCMCIA Ethernet
           Card for the following PCMCIA controllers:

               Intel 82365SL (and compatibles)
               Vadem VG-365/465
               Cirrus Logic
               Databook TCIC
               Sharp PHIC
               IBM ThinkPad
               Toshiba 3300

           Configuration is also possible via Socket Services versions 1.xx
           and 2.xx.

         3.3.2 Using DIRECTEN.OS2 in CONFIG.SYS

           You can create or modify your system's CONFIG.SYS using a text
           editor.

           The direct enabler CONFIG.SYS command line has the format:

           DEVICE=[path]\DIRECTEN.EXE [/IRQ x] [/MEM mm] [/IO nnn] [/SKT z]

           where [path] is the drive and pathname of the directory
           containing DIRECTEN.OS2.

               Valid options:
                       x   = Interrupt number (3, 4, 5, 9, 10, 11, 12, 15)
                       mm  = Hex memory location (e.g. C0, C8, D0, D8)
                       nnn = IO range (300, 320, 340, 360)
                       z   = Socket (0 to 7).

           Note: if the /SKT parameter is omitted, DIRECTEN.OS2 will
                 automatically detect the socket where the card is inserted.
     

       3.4 Installing the Client Driver Manually Under Card and Socket
           Services

         3.4.1 Overview of the Client Driver --- CSDRIVER.EXE

           If Card and Socket Services software is installed in your system,
           you should install the included client driver to enable your
           PCMCIA Ethernet Card.

           The CSIDRIVER.EXE client driver program contained on this disk
           can be used either as a device driver called from your
           computer's CONFIG.SYS file, or as an executable program run from
           the DOS prompt.

         3.4.2 Using CSDRIVER.EXE in CONFIG.SYS

           You can create or modify your system's CONFIG.SYS file with a
           text editor.

           The client driver CONFIG.SYS command line has the format:

           DEVICE=[path]\CSDRIVER.EXE [/IRQ=x] [/IO=nnn]

               Valid options:
                       x = Interrupt number (3, 4, 5, 9, 10, 11, 12, 15).
                     nnn = IO range (300, 320, 340, 360).

               Where [path] is the drive and pathname of the directory
               containing DIRECTEN.EXE.

        3.4.3 Usage of DIRECTEN.EXE from the DOS Prompt

          The client driver DOS command line has the format:

          CSDRIVER [/IRQ=x] [/IO=nnn] [/?]

               Valid options:
                      x  = Interrupt number (3, 4, 5, 9, 10, 12, 15).
                    nnn  = IO range (300, 320, 340, 360).
                     /?    Displays usage information

        3.4.4 Caution

          You should add the client driver utility CONFIG.SYS line after
          the lines for card and socket services utilities.


     4.0 Manually Installing and Configuring the Network Drivers

       You can find additional information about network device drivers in
       the README.TXT files located in each of the respective
       subdirectories.


     5.0 Diagnostic --- DIAG.EXE
       DIAG.EXE will run the following test to make sure the hardware
       components of your PCMCIA Ethernet Adapter are functional:

                I/O Port Assignment
                NIC Register Access
                On-board RAM Buffer Test
                Lookback through ENC
                Lookback through ENA
                Lookback to UTP


     6.0 Installing Client Driver under SystemSoft's CardSoft

       SystemSoft's CardSoft provides Socket Service, card Service and Card
       Identification Client drivers.  CardSoft supports Intel 82365SL PCIC
       and Databook TCIC-2/N and other PCMCIA controllers.  Each of these
       PCMCIA controllers requires a different Socket Service driver
       program.

       The client device driver, CARDID.EXE, detects the insertion and
       removal of Etehrnet adapter, automatically determines the Ethernet
       adapter as a Ethernet adapter upon insertion, and configures the card
       and slot.

       To use the both functions of Ethernet adapter with the CardSoft
       software requires the PCMCIAET.CLB file to be used by the CARDID
       client.

       Follow these steps:

       1) Copy across the PCMCIAET.CLB file:
          Copy (FROM) A:\ENABLER\pcmciaet.clb
               (TO)   C:\CARDSOFT\.

       2) Edit the CARDID.INI file and add the library PCMCIAET.CLB:

               edit C:\CARDSOFT\cardid.ini

          Find the section which starts "[Libraries]", and add the line

               CardLib=PCMCIAET.CLB

          before any other "CardLib=" lines.

     When the card is inserted it will beep.  Use CARDINFO.EXE /V to
     check the Ethernet adapter has been configured corretly as:

               LAN: IO Base=300, IRQ=11
