Instructions for using the Setup and Configuration Utilities
for the CMD Ultra DMA IDE drivers for Windows 95

*************************************************************
SETUP.EXE
---------
The setup.exe program is a utility that copies the drivers
and utilities files from the distribution diskette onto the
hard drive and then sets up Windows 95 Plug and Play for the
CMD DMA IDE controllers.  This program should be in the same
directory as the Windows 95 driver files.

This utility will remove existing registry entries related to
the CMD Ultra DMA IDE controllers if Non-CMD drivers are configured
to operate these controllers, but the utility will leave the 
registry entries intact if CMD drivers are used.  A command
line switch /o can be used to remove all existing registry
entries related to the CMD Ultra DMA IDE controllers.  These
windows registry entries must be removed for Windows 95 to
redetect and install the new drivers on the distribution
diskette.

*************************************************************
Iniset.exe
----------
The "Iniset" utility configures the Windows 95 registry to 
set up input parameters for the CMD PCI0646U driver.  
"Iniset" receives inputs from the file "iniset.ini", 
which resides on either the CMD PCI0646U setup 
diskette or the C:\QUICKCMD directory if the driver has 
already been installed.  

The input file "iniset.ini" contains two sections: 
the "Iniset" parameter section and the data section.  
The "Iniset" parameter section begins with the first line 
in "iniset.ini" that has "#" as its leftmost character, 
and ends with the first line that has "*" as its leftmost 
character, at which point the data section begins.  
The first line that begins with "#" (the first line of the 
"Iniset" parameter section) must have the number, in decimal, 
of PCI0646U controllers installed immediately after the "#" 
sign (without any spaces or other characters in between the 
"#" and the number).  If no number is specified, it defaults 
to one controller.  If 0 is specified, all other parameters
will be ignored except if verbose mode is on, the program will 
warn about it.  All parameters must begin with a "/" and no 
parameter may cross a line boundary.

The format of the "Iniset" parameter section is as follows:
; Comments
#[number of chips] [/v] [/r] [/o[chip number [p,s]]] 
; Comments
#[/dp"description of primary channel"] [/ds"description of secondary channel"]
#[/c"the name of the class under which the device is registered"]
#[/I"the string to be removed from the win.ini file after Iniset is done"]
; Comments
*First line of data section
(Note: except for the number of controllers, all options can be 
placed on any line in the "Iniset" parameter section, in any order.)

Below are valid "Iniset" parameters:
(Note: These are not parameters for the Windows 95 driver.)

/v:	Turns on the verbose mode.  With the verbose mode 
	turned on, "Iniset" will ask the user to confirm on the 
	setting of each driver parameter line, and will ask the 
	user to confirm on rebooting the system if any driver 
	parameter is set.  If the verbose mode is off (/v not 
	specified), the program will make all of the changes 
	specified by the "iniset.ini" file to the registry 
	and reboot the system automatically if any driver 
	parameter is set, without confirmation.  However, the 
	program will alert the user of any error that prevents
	normal execution of the program even if the verbose 
	mode is off.

/p: Disables the reboot confirmation prompt.  By default 
	(/p not specified), the reboot confirmation prompt 
        will appear.  /p will cause the computer to reboot
        automatically after running iniset.

/r:	Turns on the replicate mode.  This switch is effective
	only if there are more than one PCI0646U controllers 
    installed in the system.  With the replicate mode 
	off (/r not specified), the program will take the first 
	2*n lines beginning with a "*" (where n is the specified 
	number of 646U controllers) and will match the first two 
	lines to the first controller's driver, the next two lines to 
	the second controller's driver, etc.  For each set of lines, 
	the first line is for the primary channel and the second 
	line is for the secondary channel.  The controllers are ordered 
	by the PCI slot number in ascending order.  With the 
	replicate mode on, the program will take the first 2 lines 
	beginning with "*" and assign the first line to the primary 
    channel of each controller and the second line to the 
	secondary channel of each controller.

/o[controller number[p,s]]: Turn on the override switch.  By default 
	(/o not specified), "Iniset" will add the driver 
	parameters to the registry only if the registry does not 
	already have the parameters set for the devices.  The 
	override switch can force the assignment of the driver 
	parameters.  If the /o is used without specifying the 
	controller number, all of the driver parameters will be reset 
	to the parameters specified by the "iniset.ini" file.  
	If the controller number is specified (notice that there is no 
	space in between the "o" and the controller number), but is 
	not followed by p nor s, the override switch will be 
	turned on for both channels of the controller.  If p is 
	specified immediately after the chip number (no spaces) 
	the override switch will be turned on for the primary 
	channel; if s is specified, the override switch will be 
	turned on for the secondary channel.  It is important to 
	note that 0 is the controller number of the first controller, 
    and the controller are sorted in ascending order according to PCI
	bus and slot numbers.

/d?"Description": Set the description of the device in the 
	registry.  The description is a character string in the 
	registry where the value name is "DeviceDesc".  The 
	description string specified here must be in quotes.  
	The "?" before the first quotation mark of the 
	Description can be either p or s, specifying primary 
	or secondary channel respectively.  Either p or s 
	must be present (not both), and the Description in 
	quotes must also be present.  The default description 
	(/d not specified) for the primary channel is "Primary 
	CMD Bus Master IDE controller" and the default 
	description for the secondary channel is "Secondary 
	CMD Bus Master IDE controller".  These strings match 
	the description strings in the INF file in the setup 
	disk.

/I"string to be removed": This switch is now obsolete.  The 
	string to be removed (in quotes) is a character string 
	that is a field in the run= line in win.ini, where 
	windows calls "Iniset" after the driver installation 
	process.  The default string (/I not specified) is 
	"c:\quickcmd\iniset".  "Iniset" searches and removes 
	this string so that "Iniset" will automatically run 
	only once after the driver installation.  This string 
	should match the fifth field in the UPDATEINI section 
	in the INF file on the setup disk.

/c"device class": The device class is the class under which 
	the PCI0646U controllers are registered in the registry.  
	It should match the Class= field in the INF file in the 
	setup disk.  If not specified, the string "hdc" is used.

/s?[o]:  Sets the Dual IDE Channel Settings in OEM Service 
	Release 2 of Windows 95.  The ? could be `p', `s','b', 
	or `n', where `p' stands for Primary Channel Only, `s' 
	stands for Secondary Channel Only, `b' stands for Both 
	Channels, and `n' is Neither Channel.  The `o' after ? 
	specifies that the channel setting shall be overridden 
	by the new settings if it already exists.  In OEM 
	Service Release 2 this option determines which channel 
	of the controller is to be turned on.  In earlier releases 
	of Windows 95 this switch has no effect.

Note: All of the string values specified are case sensitive.


Rules for the data section:

The data section of the "iniset.ini" file specifies the 
parameters for the Windows 95 driver.  This section begins 
with the first line that has "*" as its leftmost character.  
In this part of the file, all data lines (lines containing 
parameters for the Windows 95 driver) must begin with "*", 
and they cannot span across two lines. Lines that begin with all 
other characters are skipped.


 Examples:

The following are two example "iniset.ini" files, one 
with replicate mode on, the other without:

Example file 1, with replication
================================


; Example file with replicate mode
; Next line is the first line of the "Iniset" parameter section, specifying 3 controllers installed.
#3
; The next line turns on the verbose mode and the replicate mode
#/v /r
; The next line specifies that override is on for all three controllers
#/o
; The next input line specifies that the description of the secondary channel(s) is "channel 1"
; and the class name of the device is "Fake"
#/ds"channel 1" /c"Fake"
; We can put additional comments here
; The next line that begins with "*" marks the beginning of the data section 
; and the end of "Iniset" parameter section.  It is for all three primary channels due to
; replication mode.
*/A33 /E
; The next line specifies a blank driver parameter line for all three secondary channels
*


Example 2:  File without replication mode.
==========================================


; Example file without replication mode
; Next line is the first line of the "Iniset" parameter section, specifying 3 chips installed.
#3 
; The next line specifies that verbose mode is on, and override is on for controller 1 primary channel
#/v /o1p 
; The next line specifies that override is on for both channels on controller 0
#/o0 
; All channels not specified by /o are set to the registry only if the driver parameters have never
; been set on those channels.
; The next input line specifies that the description of the primary channel(s) is "First channel"
; and the class name of the device is "Fake"
#/dp"First channel" /c"Fake"
; We can put additional comments here
; The next line that begins with "*" marks the beginning of the data section
; and the end of "Iniset" parameter section.  It is for the primary channel of controller 0.
*/A33 /E
; The next line that begins with "*" has only a "*".  
; It is meant for the secondary channel of controller 0.  It specifies a blank input line.
*
; The next two lines are for controller 1, primary and secondary channels, respectively.
*
*/E
;Finally, the last chip 
*/A33
*
; Iniset will not get to this line




Command Line Parameters:

Beside the "Iniset" parameter section of the "iniset.ini", there are also two 
command line parameters that can affect the behavior of "Iniset":

/v:	This command line switch also turns on the verbose mode.

/f"new iniset.ini file name": This switch specifies an alternate text file to 
replace the function of "iniset.ini".  The complete file name and path must be 
specified within the quotes.
