    to complete installation.


E. Driver Installation for Microsoft Windows 95

        If you have installed the Microsoft Client in your Windows 95
        system, you should remove the adapter object and NDIS3 driver
        for the SMC1211TX adapter from the Windows 95 system.


    E.1 Client 32 Driver Installation on Windows 95
         ===========================================

         1. Plug the SMC1211TX adapter into one of the Master PCI
            slots of your PCI platform.
         2. Turn the power ON, then boot into Windows 95.
         3. Windows 95 will prompt with "PCI Ethernet Controller" in the
            "New Hardware Found" dialog box.
         4. Select "Driver from disk provided by hardware manufacturer"
            from the "New Hardware Found" dialog box, then click the OK button.
         5. Insert the SMC1211TX Driver Diskette in your floppy drive.
         6. Enter the driver pathname A:\LANDRV32, then click the OK button
            in the "Install from Disk" dialog box.
         7. Follow the screen's prompt to insert the "NetWare Client 32 for
            Windows 95" disk and click the OK button in the "Insert Disk"
            dialog box.
         8. Otherwise enter the full pathname for the "NetWare Client 32 for
            Windows 95" installation files in the "Copying Files....." dialog
            box, then click the OK button.
         9. Follow the screen's prompt to insert the "Windows 95 CD-ROM"
            and click the OK button in the "Insert Disk" dialog box.
        10. Otherwise enter the full pathname of the "Windows 95 CD-ROM"
            installation files in the "Copying Files..." dialog box,
            then click the OK button.
        11. Windows 95 will copy the driver (SMC1211.LAN) from A:\LANDRV32
            to the C:\NOVELL\CLIENT32 directory and the SMC1211.INF file
            from A:\LANDRV32 to the C:\WINDOWS\INF directory.
        12. Remove the SMC1211TX Driver Diskette from your floppy drive.
        13. Restart your computer to initialize the network function.


        NOTICE!! C:\NOVELL is the directory where your Novell Client 32
                 files are located.
                 C:\WINDOWS is the directory where your Windows 95 O.S.
                 is located.


F. Parameter Description for SMC1211.LAN

        The following parameters are used in SMC1211.LAN.

    1. SLOT    : specifies which adapter is enabled when multiple SMC1211TX
                 adapters are found in your computer.  The SLOT keyword is an 
                 index value corresponding to PCI BIOS.  The mapping from SLOT
                 to the physical PCI slot is different from one machine to
                 another.

                  Ex: LOAD SMC1211 SLOT=3 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.2
                      LOAD SMC1211 SLOT=4 FRAME=ETHERNET_II

    2. FRAME   : specifies which frame type is used by the driver.  Accepted
                 values are Ethernet_802.2, Ethernet_802.3, Ethernet_II and
                 Ethernet_SNAP.  Multiple frame types can be enabled by 
                 loading the same driver with different FRAME types.

                  Ex: LOAD SMC1211 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.2
                      LOAD SMC1211 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.3
                      LOAD SMC1211 FRAME=ETHERNET_II
                      LOAD SMC1211 FRAME=ETHERNET_SNAP

    3. NODE    : Uses a different address to replace the node address burned
                 in EEPROM.

                 Ex: LOAD SMC1211 NODE=0000E8001122

    4. Medium  : Specifies which medium type is used by the driver.
                 Accepted values are AUTO,100FULL,100HALF,10FULL and
                 10HALF.

                  Ex: LOAD SMC1211 SLOT=3 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.2 Medium=100FULL
