Description:

  1. W940S3.O is a SCO UNIX 3.x (Runtime v3.2.4x with TCP/IP v.1.2.1) driver.

     This driver is allowed to install on 4 LAN cards with Winbond 940 chips.

     This driver will automatically get IOBASE and IRQ of 940 chips from PCI
     Configuration Space.

     If there are more 940 cards than the installed board number, this driver
     will automatically select 940 cards to load.

     If the installed board number is more than the 940 card number, this
     driver will show warning messaage, and exits.
