(A) Installing the driver in Microsoft Windows NT 3.51
==================================================

    1. Plug SMC1211 series adapter into one of the Master PCI

       dialog box.

    7. Select "<other> Requires disk from manufacturer" from the Network
       Adapter Card list, and then click the "Continue" button in the
       "Add Network Adapter" dialog box,

    8. Insert the SMC1211 series Driver Diskette in your floppy drive.

       information file (OEMSETUP.INF) in the "Insert Disk" dialog box,
