README.TXT Driver File Contents (cnr117nt.exe)

Conner has merged with Seagate.  We will continue to use 
the Conner name when referring to CNR117.SYS device driver.  
Note, the CNR117.SYS device driver does not support Conner's 2 Mbps 
tape controller.  This device driver can be used with Conner's
floppy interface tape drives that support the QIC-117 protocol.  
This includes the following Conner tape drives and (tapes):

CTT-3200 (TR3, TR2, QW3020, QW3010, MC3000XL PIMAT, MC3000XL TAUMAT) 
CTT-800 (TR1, QW5122F, DC2120XL, DC2120, DC2080)
TSM-420 (QW5122F, DC2120XL, DC2120, DC2080), 
11250N (DC2120,DC2080).

The file CNR117NT.EXE and Q117RDME.TXT (this file) can be downloaded
from Seagate's BBS (1-408-438-8771) or obtained on diskette from
Seagate Tape Sales Support (1-800-626-6637).

To install and use the Conner device driver CNR117.SYS for 
either Windows NT 3.5 or Windows NT 3.51 please follow 
the instructions below.

The following procedure will assume the file CNR117NT.EXE is the 
only file on a diskette in the A: drive, on a PC running Windows 
NT 3.5x.  Before proceeding, put the file CNR117NT.EXE on a 
diskette and put the diskette in the A: drive.

From FileManager click on the A: drive Icon to display the files 
on the A: drive. Note CNR117NT.EXE is present. Double click on 
CNR117NT.EXE to execute, as it is a self extracting file. 
This will create three files, on the diskette in the A: drive:

   1) A:\INSTALL.BAT
   2) A:\CNR117.EXE
   3) A:\README.TXT

Again using FileManager click on the A: drive Icon, then double click 
on INSTALL.BAT to execute this batch file.  Executing INSTALL.BAT will 
create an installable NT Driver Diskette out of the diskette in drive 
A: with the following directory structure and files.

A:\cnr117nt.exe
A:\readme.txt
A:\cnr117.exe
A:\install.bat
A:\disk1
A:\conner\ppc\cnr117.sys  (for Power PC's)
A:\conner\i386\cnr117.sys (for Intel PC's)
A:\conner\oemsetup.inf

Lastly, follow the Install procedure outlined in the file A:\README.TXT 
to install the CNR117.SYS device driver. The Install Procedure can 
automatically determine the type of PC (either Intel or PowerPC) and 
install the proper version of the driver.

Write Protect and store the diskette, as it can be used to install the 
driver on other PC's.  It has the proper directory structure and files 
to go directly to the install procedure outline in the A:\README.TXT file.
