                        Windows 95 from NT server.



Installation:
=============

  Before starting the installation process, make sure that the adapter
  is properly installed and configured. You can use the diagnostic program
  (A:\SETUP.EXE) to make sure your connection with the network is correct.
  
  PXERPL MENU Options
  -------------------
  
  1.After POST of BIOS, the PXERPL will show prompts as following:
  
      Press <r> key to boot from RPL.
      Press <p> key to boot from PXE.
      Press any other key to boot from local.
      Timeout 12 seconds (boot from PXE - INT 19).
      
  2.At this moment, you may either press <r> key to boot from RPL, press 
    <p> key to boot from PXE, or any other key to disable network-booting 
    and then boot from local devices. If you don't press any key within 12 
    seconds, the PXERL will timeout and then automaticly choice to boot 
    from PXE via hooking INT 19.
    
  3.If you press <p> key, PXERPL will stop timeout process and then show 
    some advenced prompts as following:
  
  
    1 - Disable Network Boot
    2 - Network Boot Using Interrupt 18h
    3 - Network Boot Using Interrupt 19h
    4 - Network Boot Using PnP/BEV (BBS)
    Press 1, 2, 3 or 4:', NUL
    
    
    A.'Disable Network Boot'
    
        This option is chosen to boot from local devices, not to boot from 
    network.
    
    B.'Network Boot Using Interrupt 18h'
    
       This options is chosen to boot from network via hooking INT 18h. Since
    INT 18h is boot recovery vector, so only after other local devices with 
    higher IPL prioirty failed to boot successfully then we may boot.
    
    
    C.'Network Boot Using Interrupt 19h'
    
       This options is chosen to boot network via hooking INT 19. Since INT 19
    is booting vector, our device is alway chosen to boot regardless of IPL 
    priority.
        
    D.'Network Boot Using PnP/BEV (BBS)'
    
       This options is chosen to boot network via PnP/BEV. Whether to boot or not
    according IPL priority. The proiority for IPL devices is configurable by the 
    user by editing the IPL Priority in BIOS Setup.
    
  
  RPL Setup Procedure:
  --------------------

  1. The BOOTROM installation procedures are identical in Windows NT Server 3.5,
     3.51, 4.0. First, install the Remoteboot Service on the NT Server:

     Choose "Control Panel\Network\Add Software" and select "Remoteboot
     Service", follow the screen instruction to install.

  2. Use "File Manager" in NT Server 3.5, 3.51 or "Windows Explorer" in NT
     Server 4.0 to share the following directory:

     \windows\rpl\rpl\rplfiles, suppose \windows is your Windows NT directory.

  3. Copy all the MS-DOS 6.22 files as follow:

        attrib -s -h -r c:\io.sys
        attrib -s -h -r c:\msdos.sys
        copy c:\io.sys c:\windows\rpl\rplfiles\binfiles\dos622
        copy c:\msdos.sys c:\windows\rpl\rplfiles\binfiles\dos622
        copy c:\dos622\*.* c:\windows\rpl\rplfiles\binfiles\dos622
        attrib +s +h +r c:\io.sys
        attrib +s +h +r c:\msdos.sys

  4. Copy the NDIS2 driver for "PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter" as follow:

        copy a:\bootrom\fetnd.dos c:\windows\rpl\bblock\ndis
        md c:\windows\rpl\bblock\netbeui\fetnd
        copy a:\bootrom\fetnd.cnf c:\windows\rpl\bblock\netbeui\fetnd
        copy a:\bootrom\protocol.ini c:\windows\rpl\bblock\netbeui\fetnd

  5. Run RPLCMD to add a bblock record for the adapter as follow:

        net start remoteboot    ;run in MSDOS prompt
        rplcmd                  ;Follow the example below to enter data

           Adapter Boot Config Profile Service Vendor Wksta [Quit] V
           Add Del Enum: A
           VendorName=xxxxxx    ;upper 6 digits of your adapter's ethernet ID
           VendorComment=xx...x ;type your vendor string. optional.

           Adapter Boot Config Profile Service Vendor Wksta [Quit] B
           Add Del Enum:A
           BootName=DOSV1
           VendorName=xxxxxx    ;upper 6 digits of your adapter's ethernet ID
           BbcFile=BBLOCK\NETBEUI\FETND\FETND.CNF
           BootCommet=xx...x    ;optional string
           WindowsSize=0

           Adapter Boot Config Profile Service Vendor Wksta [Quit] C
           Add Del Enum:A
           ConfigName=DOS622V1
           BootName=DOSV1
           DirName=DOS
           DirName2=DOS622
           FitShared=FITS\DOS622.FIT
           FitPersonal=FITS\DOS622P.FIT
           ConfigComment=DOS 6.22 FETND
           DirName3=            ;press "Enter"
           DirName4=            ;press "Enter"

           Adapter Boot Config Profile Service Vendor Wksta [Quit] Q

  6. Run "Control Panel\Services", select "Remoteboot Service" and change the
     "Startup" option to "Automatic". Now reboot NT Server, remoteboot service
     will be started automatically.

  7. Run "Remoteboot Manager" from "Administrative Tools"

     a. Choose "Remoteboot\New Profile.." to create a Profile Name according to
        the DOS 6.22 FETND configuration.
     b. Choose "Remoteboot\New Workstation.." to create a Workstation Name
        according to the profile name and your Adapter Ethernet ID.

  8. Now the remoteboot server is ready, boot your workstation with "BOOTROM
     plug in PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter", then you can access the NT Server from
     your workstation.
