* Trouble Shooting

   1. Message: "!! No W89C940 card detected"
        Solution: Make sure that your W89C940 card is plugged steadily.

   2. Message: "!! No free W89C940 card"
        Solution: One driver for one card. Make sure that there is less
        drivers loaded than card plugged. If option keyword SelectedID is
        assigned, make sure that all node ID's assigned is correct or let
        drivers without SelectedID be loaded after those with SelectedID.

   3. Message: "!! Cannot open PROTMAN$"
        Solution: Make sure that PROTMAN.DOS is loaded before W940ND.DOS,
        and it is initialized successfully. If the syntax of PROTOCOL.INI
        is incorrect, PROTMAN$ cannot be loaded.

   4. Message: "!! Bad Parameter in PROTOCOL.INI"
        Solution: The parameter is invalid. For example, the correct
        SelectedID format need two single quotation signs ('). If you fail
        to do it, this message will be shown.

   5. Message: "!! Unknown Keyword in PROTOCOL.INI"
        Solution: W940ND only accepts two keywords: DRIVERNAME and SELECTED.
        Other keywords are unknown. Notice that, PCI bus need not assign

   6. Message: "!! Specified SELECTEDID is absent or bound"
        Solution: You specified a node ID at keyword SelectedID, and this ID
        is bound by another drivers or can not be found. Make sure that the
        ID is correct.
