            Driver installation Guide for NetWare 3.12 Server
         =======================================================

Introduction
============
    This document describes the procedure to install NetWare 3.12 Server
    driver for AEF-360TX Family PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter.

    Location of Driver: \NETWARE\SRVRODI.312\RTSSRV.LAN


Installation Procedure
======================
    Before you start with the installation process, make sure that the
    Novell NetWare v3.12 server is properly installed.
    Similarly, your adapter should also be properly installed in your
    server.
    Because this version of driver follows Novell ODI Driver Specification
    Version 3.3, the old server must be patched to work well with this
    driver.

    1. These files can be obtained from the driver diskette subdirectory
       A:\NETWARE\SRVRODI.312

       NBI31X.NLM
       MSM31X.NLM
       ETHERTSM.NLM

    2. If you can log into  the server as a  supervisor , copy RTSSRV.LAN
       relative files from the Driver Diskette subdirectory
       A:\NETWARE\SRVRODI.312 into the NetWare 386 subdirectory SYSTEM of
       your server. (If some files exists , rename the  existing files in
       the SYSTEM subdirectory).

    3. When the NetWare server prompt appears (indicated by a colon),
       load your server driver. Simply type:

       : LOAD NBI31X   <Entet>
       : LOAD MSM31X   <Entet>
       : LOAD ETHERTSM <Enter>
       : LOAD RTSSRV   <Enter>

       or, you can directly load file from the AEF-360TX Family PCI 
       Fast Ethernet Adapter driver disk :

       : LOAD A:\NETWARE\SRVRODI.312\NBI31X   <Enter>
       : LOAD A:\NETWARE\SRVRODI.312\MSM31X   <Enter>
       : LOAD A:\NETWARE\SRVRODI.312\ETHERTSM <Enter>
       : LOAD A:\NETWARE\SRVRODI.312\RTSSRV   <Enter>

    4. Bind IPX to the adapter driver. At the NetWare server prompt,
       type:

       :BIND IPX TO RTSSRV <Enter>

    5. After pressing <Enter> the computer prompts you for the Network
       Number. For details on how to assign this number,please consult
       your NetWare Server Installation Manual.

    6. Add the load and bind statements you require to the server's
       AUTOEXEC.NCF file so that the LAN driver will load automatically
       each time the server starts up.

Notes
=====
   1. Installing Multiple LAN Adapters:
      The keyword "SLOT" is provided for multiple LAN adapters in a
      single server by the driver RTSSRV.LAN. So, add "SLOT" in LOAD
      commands. For example:

      LOAD RTSSRV FRAME=Ethernet_802.2 NAME=LAN_A SLOT=1
      BIND IPX TO LAN_A NET=11
      LOAD RTSSRV FRAME=Ethernet_802.2 NAME=LAN_B SLOT=2
      BIND IPX TO LAN_B NET=22

   2. The keyword "MEDIUMTYPE" is provided for specifying adapter's speed
      (10M/100M) and duplex mode(half/full), add MEDIUMTYPE in
      LOAD commands.

      MEDIUMTYPE=AUTO    :  AUTO NEGOTIATION
      MEDIUMTYPE=10HALF  :  10M  SPPED AND HALFDUPLEX MODE
      MEDIUMTYPE=10FULL  :  10M  SPPED AND FULLDUPLEX MODE
      MEDIUMTYPE=100HALF :  100M SPPED AND HALFDUPLEX MODE
      MEDIUMTYPE=100FULL :  100M SPPED AND FULLDUPLEX MODE

      For example:

      LOAD RTSSRV FRAME=Ethernet_802.2 NAME=LAN_A SLOT=1
      MEDIUMTYPE=100FULLBIND IPX TO LAN_A NET=11

   3. Installing One LAN adapter with Multiple Frame Types:
      When  binding multiple frame types to one adapter, enter a LOAD
      and BIND statement for each frame type. Each LOAD statement will
      use a different network number is required on the bind statement.
      You need  to supply  a name on each load line in order to avoid
      being  prompted  for which  board to bind IPX to. If you do not
      have the name option in the AUTOEXEC.NCF , it will not  execute
      completely without user intervention.  Example:

        LOAD RTSSRV FRAME=ETHERNET_802.3 NAME=IEE8023
        BIND IPX TO IEE8023 NET=11111
        LOAD RTSSRV FRAME=ETHERNET_802.2 NAME=IEE8022
        BIND IPX TO LAN8022 NET=22222

    4. If problems occur during the binding process, your  screen will
       prompt you with error  messages.  Please refer to your NetWare
       386 manual for details on these messages.
