Trouble Shooting:

   1. Message: 'No Winbond 940 IO card existed.'
      Solution: Make sure that your W89C940 PCI card is plugged into the
                system.

   2. Message: 'There are multiple Winbond 940 cards. Use NET.CFG to specify
               I/O port.'
      Solution: Because there is more than one 940 card in your system, you
                must use the I/O port to select a W89C940 card. This is done by
                adding the following statements to the NET.CFG file:

                        Link Driver 940-OD
                            port d000      ---> selected W89C940 card
