CardWizard Requirements
===========================
The following items are the minimum requirements for CardWizard:

	Windows 3.1 or Windows for Workgroups 3.11 
	DOS 5.0 or later
	1 or more PCMCIA slots
	32KB of DOS memory
	4MB RAM
	2MB of hard drive storage space


===========================
CardWizard Installation
===========================
The CardWizard installation must be done within Windows.  The  
installation installs all DOS and Windows PCMCIA support in addition to 
the Windows CardWizard interface.


Instructions
------------
	Insert the installation disk into a proper disk drive.  For example, 
	if drive A: is to be used:

	From the Windows Program Manager:
		choose Run from the file menu.
		type:   a:\setup

	From the Windows File Manager:
		choose Run from the file menu.
		type:   a:\setup
		     or 
		select the a: drive then double click on setup.exe file.

CONFIG.SYS Menu Partitions
--------------------------
	If you wish to customize the handling of the CONFIG.SYS partitions, 
	it is recommended that you choose Custom Installation.  Choosing 
	Custom will allow you greater flexibility in how you setup your 
	CONFIG.SYS file.  The Express Installation path will follow a 
	pre-defined path as described in the next paragraph:
	
    EXPRESS     The Setup Utility will create a new menu item and menu section 
		in the CONFIG.SYS file.  Upon rebooting, you will be presented 
		with a new option called "SystemSoft CardWizard."  In the case 
		that you are upgrading a previous version of SystemSoft's 
		PCMCIA software, the older software will be replaced with the 
		newer CardWizard version and no new menu item will be 
		created.  The Setup Utility will de-install any other vendor's 
		software it encounters.

   CUSTOM       On a Custom Installation, the Setup Utility will present
		you with a screen that displays all of the different menus
		found in the CONFIG.SYS file.  By clicking on the "Setup"
		button, you can inform the Setup Utility as to which menu
		sections you wish to install the drivers.  Also, you can
		specify which cards you prefer to support in each menu.  

Typical System File Modifications
---------------------------------
	Typical system file modifications are shown below:

	CONFIG.SYS
	----------
	devicehigh=c:\windows\emm386.exe noems X=D000-D7FF
					       
	devicehigh=c:\cardwiz\sstpic95.exe /SK2:2 
	devicehigh=c:\cardwiz\cs.exe /POLL:1
	device=c:\cardwiz\csalloc.exe
	devicehigh=c:\cardwiz\atadrv.exe /S:2
	devicehigh=c:\cardwiz\mti1.exe
	devicehigh=c:\cardwiz\mti2p.exe
	devicehigh=c:\cardwiz\mtaa.exe
	devicehigh=c:\cardwiz\mtab.exe
	devicehigh=c:\cardwiz\mtatm.exe
	devicehigh=c:\cardwiz\mthb2.exe
	devicehigh=c:\cardwiz\mtddrv.exe
	devicehigh=c:\cardwiz\mtsram.exe
	devicehigh=c:\cardwiz\ftl.exe
	devicehigh=c:\cardwiz\ssmsflsh.sys
	devicehigh=c:\cardwiz\cardid.exe 
	
	SYSTEM.INI
	----------
	[386Enh]  {This is the only section changed}
	EmmExclude=D000-D7FF
	;device=*vcd     {This line is remarked, or commented, out}
	device=c:\cardwiz\pccard.386
	device=c:\cardwiz\ssvrdd.386
	device=c:\cardwiz\ssvcd311.386 (Windows for Workgroups)


EMM386 Exclusions
-----------------
	The CardWizard Setup Utility looks for EMM386.EXE in the 
	CONFIG.SYS file.  If this driver is not in CONFIG.SYS, then the 
	"EmmExclude=D000-D7FF" parameter is added in SYSTEM.INI to ensure 
	that there are 32K bytes of memory which can be used by CardWizard. 
	If EMM386 is installed in CONFIG.SYS, then the Setup Utility
	will check its memory exclusion range.  If less than 32Kbytes are 
	excluded, then the installation program will expand the exclusion 
	range to 32Kbytes. 


========================================
Notes About Your CardWizard Software
========================================
	This version currently handles one Memory Manager (EMM386.EXE).
	It does not correct for memory conflicts that result from the 
	presence of QEMM, 386MAX, or other memory managers.

	CardWizard cannot correct problems for cards that require 
	proprietary card services clients.  It can, however, report any
	resource conflicts if the driver is installed properly.  For 
	example, if you have a PC Card which has more than one function 
	(i.e. Ethernet and Modem), you will need to load the additional
	driver which is provided with the card on top of the CardWizard
	software.

	When running the CardWizard application in the minimized view
	format, there are two ways to maximize the window;  you can
	double click on the icon with the mouse button; or you can use the
	<Alt>-<Space> key sequence.  The icon will not maximize by using 
	the <Enter> key.

CardSoft16/CardWizard Release Notes  1/12/96
=============================================

Known Problems, Limitations and Workarounds
-------------------------------------------

Note on Card Services Advanced Power Management Interface (CS_APM.EXE)

	The CardSoft driver, CS_APM.EXE, must be installed to allow cards
	to be handled properly when a machine is suspended or resumed.  The
	CS_APM.EXE must be installed as a terminate and stay resident (TSR)
	driver after the CardSoft16 drivers in CONFIG.SYS.  The proper 
	syntax is as follows:

	e.g.    install=c:\cardwiz\cs_apm.exe

Note on LAN Cards

        LAN cards are typically configured by drivers provided by the
        manufacturer of the LAN card.  If a LAN card is inserted and a 'bad'
        beep is produced, it may be due to missing LAN drivers.  With the
        correct drivers loaded, a 'good' beep is produced and the card is
        configured.  CardWizard would then be able to report the correct
        information regarding the configuration of the card.  Some LAN drivers
        are required to be loaded after the card is inserted in the slot while
        others require the drivers to be loaded first monitoring card insertion.

Note on Token Ring Cards
	
	Token Ring cards typically require a large amount of memory to
	configure and work properly.  For configuration, a Token Ring card
	requires 32K of memory.  By default, CardSoft sets aside 32K for card
	configurations of which card services requires 4K for its own use.
	Most cards can be configured within this 32K limit.

	In order to configure Token Ring adapters, it is necessary to 
	allocate additional memory.  Typically, this can be done by increasing
	the memory exclusion range of EMM386.EXE in the CONFIG.SYS.

	See the above note on EMM386 exclusions for more information.

	e.g. If default is:  device=c:\windows\emm386.exe noems X=D000-D7FF
			       < Which sets aside 32K of memory. >
	     Change to:      device=c:\windows\emm386.exe noems X=D000-DFFF
			       < Which sets aside 64K of memory. >

	You have to re-boot your machine for the change to take effect, and
	during boot-up CardSoft (CSALLOC.EXE) will scan the system for the
	additional resources.

Note on Docking Stations

	When using a docking station which uses the Vadem (SSVADEM.EXE) or
	Cirrus (SSCIRRUS.EXE) socket service, one of the following lines 
	needs to be used in CONFIG.SYS.

	DEVICEHIGH=C:\CARDWIZ\SSCIRRUS.EXE /NUMADA:2 /SKT:2

	or

	DEVICEHIGH=C:\CARDWIZ\SSVADEM.EXE /NUMADA:2 /SKT:2

Note on IBM 755 systems

	On IBM 755 systems, IRQ 9 is not available for PCMCIA operations.  
	However, the IRQ usage is not reported properly to DOS.  
	Therefore, CardWizard attempts to use it for PCMCIA operations 
	and encounters problems.

	If your PCMCIA card is not functioning properly and IRQ 9 is
	used, add the following line to CSALLOC.INI and reboot your 
	system.

	IRQEXCLUDE=9

Sony CD-ROM

	If the Sony CD-ROM PCMCIA card is inserted prior to running the
	Sony installation, the card will be recognized as an ATA card.  To
	avoid this problem,  run the Sony install program that came with
	your CD-ROM device before card insertion.  

3COM 3C589 Ethernet

	As of the printing of this README file, the 3COM 3C589 card must be 
	configured using the point enablers provided by 3COM.  Follow the 
	instructions provided with your card for installing the point 
	enablers.  Point enablers are not the recommended method for using
	PC Cards.  Check with 3COM for further driver information. 

Madge Token Ring Card

	Use Madge drivers Release 4.3 or later.


Ositech "Trump Card" Multifunction Adapter

	This card works properly when the following resources are allocated:

		Network:  I/O = 300-30F, IRQ = 15, MEM = D000
		Modem:    I/O = 2E8-2EF, IRQ = 3,  MEM = Not Needed


SMC Ethernote Card

	Use driver set which includes the following driver: 
	
		SMC80PC.COM v1.02 (940607)  or later


Xircom Token Ring Card

	The Xircom Token Ring card works properly when inserted in the slots
	on the notebook.  However, the Xircom Token Ring card does not work
	on the docking station.  This is a limitation of the drivers provided
	by Xircom to communicate with CardSoft.  Until newer drivers are
	available from Xircom, this card will have to be used in the slots
	on the notebook.  We have tested with the following Xircom drivers:
		
		Network Drivers Disk Version 2.03 (941213)
		Installation and Utilities Disk Version 1.43 (941214)
