           "PCILAN5.EXE" from PCI Ethernet Card driver diskette
            A:\LANTASTI\5X to your LANtastic subdirectory C:\LANTASTI.5 .

        4. Modify STARTNET.BAT file as above sample configuration files.


   Notes:

         PCILAN5/MPX=D7 VERBOSE
         AILANBIO/MPX=D7/ADAPTER=1

         The first invocation of PCILAN5.EXE and AILANBIO.EXE loads into
         the first adapter using the default MPX number (C7), and adapter
         number 0.   The  command line  switches in the second invocation
         instruct  the  NETBIOS  to  load into the second card,  (adapter
