Novell NetWare Server 3.11
--------------------------

For a NetWare 3.11 server configuration, We provides a NetWare Server 3.11 ODI
driver which is included on the PCI Ethernet Card driver diskette.

Note:
-----
The directory structure provided on the PCI Ethernet Card driver diskette has
been setup for automatic OEM installation. Also, more information can be found
in the Novell NetWare 3.11 documentation.

Use the (LOAD) and (BIND) commands to load the NetWare 3.11 ODI server driver
as described below. For more information on these commands, refer to the Novell
NetWare 3.11 LAN Driver Installation documentation.

There are two methods for loading the NetWare Server 3.11 driver:
1) use the server command line prompt (":") or 2) edit the (AUTOEXEC.NCF) file.

Note:
-----
If you use the server command line, you will need to load the driver each time
the system is booted. If you edit the AUTOEXEC.NCF file, it will automatically
load the driver each time your system is booted.

Follow the steps listed below:

1       Install NetWare 3.11 on your system.

2       Copy the ODI Server driver (PCIODI.LAN) and relative files from the PCI
        Ethernet Card driver diskette to the hard disk directory where the NetWare
        3.11 system files are located. The following path should be used to
        access the files from the PCI Ethernet Card driver diskette:

                A:\SERVER.ODI\3.11\PCIODI.LAN
                A:\SERVER.ODI\3.11\PATCHMAN.NLM
                A:\SERVER.ODI\3.11\LSLENH.NLM
                A:\SERVER.ODI\3.11\MSM31X.NLM
                A:\SERVER.ODI\3.11\ETHERTSM.NLM
                A:\SERVER.ODI\3.11\MONITOR.NLM

3       Boot NetWare by executing (SERVER.EXE). Refer to the appropriate
        Novell NetWare documentation on loading disk drivers and mounting
        volumes for more information.

4       To load the driver manually, follow the steps listed below. If you
        want to load the driver using (AUTOEXEC), go to step 5.

        Notes:
        ------
        1) You will need to specify the DOS path if the driver is located in
           a DOS partition.

        Type the following command at the file server console (which also
        changes the default settings for PCI Ethernet Card):

                LOAD LSLENH
                LOAD MSM31X
                LOAD PCIODI

        Next, bind the driver to the IPX protocol stack by typing:

                BIND IPX TO PCIODI NET=xxxx
                (Bind to IPX or any other protocol stack; where e.g., xxxx=1234)

        Then press <Enter>.

        The installation of the NetWare Server 3.11 driver is now complete.


5       To load the driver using (AUTOEXEC), you must first edit the
        (AUTOEXEC.NCF) file.

        * Type "LOAD INSTALL" at the server prompt (":") to access the Install
          Utility.

        * Open the "SYSTEM OPTIONS" menu to access "EDIT AUTOEXEC".

        * Then add the following command lines to the (AUTOEXEC.NCF) file.


        An example with the PCI Ethernet Card:

                LOAD PCIODI FRAME=Ethernet_802.2

                BIND IPX TO PCIODI NET=xxxx
                (Bind to IPX or any other protocol stack; where e.g., xxxx=1234)

                You can load 4 frame type protocol at a time when the server is
                booted. To use this option you must load and bind another
                frame type protocol( Ethernet_802.3,Ethernet_II,Ethernet_SNAP ).

Loading Multiple PCI Ethernet Cards
-----------------------------------

The driver must be loaded again for each new PCI Ethernet Card
installed in the system.

If more than one adapter card will be installed, the user must
specify the Board's Ethernet ID for each card. For example, to load
two PCI Ethernet Cards:

        LOAD PCIODI

        Found Board 1: port D000, int 11, EtherID=002018ff0088
        Found Board 2: port 8000, int 15, EtherID=002018ff0077

        Now you can Specify '1' or '2' to select the PCI Ethernet Card
        to load.

Then press <Enter>.

        The installation of the NetWare Server 3.11 driver is now complete.

        Notes:
        ------
        1) You will need to specify the DOS path if the driver is located in
           a DOS partition.

        2) If you want to use two or more PCI Ethernet Cards on your NetWare
           server.please run the configuration utility(EZPCI.EXE) to view crad's
           Ethernet ID setting first.
