Installation and Configuration

The following subsections describe the procedure for installing the driver

NETWARE Driver Installation

Follow this sequence for installation under NETWARE.

1.Install the NIC into a PCI slot of a NetWare server and note the slot 
  number for driver configuration later (slots are generally numbered 
  top/front to bottom/back of the machine). It is recommended that NetWare 
  5.1 with Support Pack 1 or later be installed. To install the driver,copy 
  the DP83820T.LAN & DP83820T.LDI files onto a floppy disk.

2.Load NWConfig.nlm and follow the 'Driver Options->Configure Network 
  drivers->Select a driver' options on the UI. Follow on-screen directions 
  to point to the drivers installed on floppy (A:\NETWARE). Put the slot
  number and the number of Tx,and Rx Descriptors as required.

3.Alternately, driver can be loaded from the command line (e.g.
  load A:\NETWARE\DP83820T.LAN)& passing the required parameters. This will 
  also display the available slot options for the NIC.

4.The DP83820T.LAN may also be configured at OS install time and can be 
  used in conjunction with the auto-detect feature on NetWare Install.

5.The different options for speed and duplex mode can be configured using 
  NWConfig at installation time or Inetcfg later.
