                    Driver Installation Guide for Linux
                 =========================================

Introduction
============
    This document describes the procedure to install driver on Linux for
    AEF-360TX Family PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter.

    Location of Driver : \LINUX\RTL8139.C


Installation procedure
======================
    The recommended kernel version is 2.2.X.  You should also  comfirm the
    Linux kernel is built with network and module supports. Other required
    packages (libraries, linker, ...) with the kernel version can be found
    in the Document\Changes file of the Linux kernel source .

    1. Now enter the following commands at the UNIX prompt. Remember, UNIX
       is case sensitive.

       mkdir /temp
       mcopy a:rtl8139.c /temp

       Note:
           a. copies from DOS disk to current working directory.
           b. mcopy is mtools if you don't have mtools, you can
              mount -t /dev/fd0 and use cp command

       mcopy a:trans /temp
       cd /temp
       chmod 777 *                     (add all right to all file)

    2. run trans file to complie and copy driver to linux source code:
       /temp/trans

       A. Slackware
          ---------
          1) Run netconfig to set you network parameter (like ip, gateway),
             This will create '/etc/rc.d/inet1' and 'inet2' files.

          2) You must modify /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 to insmod driver. This file
             will run at boot time. add a line in rc.inet1:

             cd /etc/rc.d
             vi rc.inet1
             insmod /your driver' path/rtl8139.o

             ex: insmod /usr/src/linux/modules/rtl8139.o
                 (must before bind protocal)

             Note: parameter can be added by adding options=... behind
                   the istrruction
                   ex: full duplex::(bit 4 of 'options')
                   'insmod rtl8139.o options=16'
                   (run 'lsmod' to see if the module is inserted)

             shutdown -h now
             (then your driver will work every time you boot.)

       B. RedHat
          ------
          1) You must create or modify /etc/rc.modules to insmod driver.
             This file will run at boot time. add a line in rc.modules:

             cd /etc/rc.d/rc.modules
             vi rc.modules
             insmod /your driver' path/rtl8139.o
             chmod 755 /etc/rc.modules

             ex: insmod /usr/src/linux/modules/rtl8139.o

             Note: parameter can be added by adding options=... behind
                   the istrruction
                   ex: full duplex::(bit 4 of 'options')
                       'insmod rtl8139.o options=16'
                       (run 'lsmod' to see if the module is inserted)

          2) Use 'netconf' to configure you network environment.
          3) Reboot your system.

Note
====
    make sure that your kernel is built with network, fast_ethernet and
    module support. Otherwise, you have to rebuild your kernel.

    1. go to /usr/src/linux directory
    2. run 'make menuconfig' or 'make config'
    3. mark the options list above.
    4. exit and rebuild your kernel.
       make dep;make clean;make zImage
       the file 'zImage' will be at /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/zImage
    5. modify /etc/lilo.conf. (this file specify where kernel image is)
    6. run 'lilo'

After your driver has been downloaded, follow these simple steps to install it.

  • Expand the archive file (if the download file is in zip or rar format).

  • If the expanded file has an .exe extension, double click it and follow the installation instructions.

  • Otherwise, open Device Manager by right-clicking the Start menu and selecting Device Manager.

  • Find the device and model you want to update in the device list.

  • Double-click on it to open the Properties dialog box.

  • From the Properties dialog box, select the Driver tab.

  • Click the Update Driver button, then follow the instructions.

Very important: You must reboot your system to ensure that any driver updates have taken effect.
