===============================================================================

2. Enable the PCMCIA Fast Ethernet PC Card

   CARDOPEN.EXE is the PCMCIA Fast Ethernet enabler program. You have to
   run CARDOPEN.EXE under DOS to enable the adapter before bringing up
   the Netware Server. The adapter's server driver will not work if
   the adapter is not enabled first in DOS.

   The syntax for CARDOPEN is:

         CARDOPEN [/IRQ:x][/IOP:xxx]

         * IRQ - interrupt (IRQ) number to be used by PC Card.
                 This number must not be in use by any other device
                 in the system.

         * IOP - Starting I/O port address in hexadecimal format.
                 PC Card requires 32 consecutive free I/O port
                 addresses.

         The default value for IRQ is 3.  The default value for IOP is
         0x300.

      Example:  The following command enables PC Card with IRQ 5 and
                I/O port address 300:

            CARDOPEN /IRQ:5 /IOP:300

3. Driver Installation for NetWare Server 3.12

      1. Insert Driver Disk in the floppy drive (e.g. A:).
      2. Copy the following file from the Driver Disk to the root
         directory on the hard disk:

            \ENABLER\CARDOPEN.EXE

         Execute CARDOPEN to enable the adapter as described in Section 2 above.

      3. Change to the NetWare Server directory (for example:
         CD \SERVER.312)
      4. Copy the following files from Driver Disk to the NetWare
         Server directory on the hard disk:

            \NETWARE\SERVER\3.12\NBI31X.NLM
            \NETWARE\SERVER\3.12\MSM31X.NLM
            \NETWARE\SERVER\3.12\ETHERTSM.NLM
            \NETWARE\SERVER\AX88190.LAN

            \NETWARE\SERVER\AX88190.LAN

         Copy the following file from the Driver Disk to the root
         directory on the hard disk:

            \ENABLER\CARDOPEN.EXE

         Execute CARDOPEN to enable the adapter as described in Section 2 above.


      2. Change to NetWare Server directory (for example: CD \NWSERVER).

      3. Load the NetWare Server System by typing SERVER, and
         press <Enter>.

      4. When the Server prompt appears, load the NetWare Server
         Installation Utility by entering the following command on the
         server console:

            LOAD INSTALL

      5. Select "Driver options" from the "Installtion Options" menu,
         and press <Enter>.

      6. Select "Configure network drivers" from the "Driver Options" menu,
         and press <Enter>.

      7. Select "Select a driver" from the "Additional Driver Actions" menu,
         and press <Enter>.

      8. Press <Ins> to install an unlisted driver, and press <F3> to
         specify a different path.

      9. Insert the Driver Disk in the floppy drive (e.g. A:),
         and specify the directory on the Driver Disk where the
         drivers are located  (e.g. A:\NETWARE\SERVER).

6. Optional Parameters for AX88190.LAN

   The following are the optional parameters for AX88190.LAN:

    1. FRAME:
          Specifies which frame type is used by the driver.
          Accepted values are Ethernet_802.2, Ethernet_802.3,
          Ethernet_II and Ethernet_SNAP.  Multiple frame types can
          be enabled by loading the same driver with different
          FRAME types.

          Examples:

             LOAD AX88190 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.2
             LOAD AX88190 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.3
             LOAD AX88190 FRAME=ETHERNET_II
             LOAD AX88190 FRAME=ETHERNET_SNAP

    2. INT:
          The Interrupt (IRQ) value to be used by the adapter.

          You have to pay attention that the INT value you specified
          here must match the /IRQ value you specified for
          CARDOPEN, the adapter DOS enabler program.  Please
          refer to section 2 on how to use CARDOPEN to enable
          the adapter in DOS before bringing up the server.

          Example:

             LOAD CARDOPEN INT=5 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.2

    3. PORT:
          The starting I/O port address.

          You have to pay attention that the PORT value you specified
          here must match the /IOP value you specified for CARDOPEN,
          the adapter DOS enabler program.  Please
          refer to section 2 on how to use CARDOPEN to enable
          the adapter in DOS before bringing up the server.

          Example:

             LOAD AX88190 INT=3 PORT=300 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.2

    4. S10 | S10FD | S100 | S100FD
          These parameters are mutually exclusive and you can specify
          only one of them on the command line.

             S10:    Connection type is 10 Mbps, Half Duplex.
             S10FD:  Connection type is 10 Mbps, Full Duplex
             S100:   Connection type is 100 Mbps, Half Duplex
             S100FD: Connection type is 100 Mbps, Full Duplex

          If none of the parameters is specified, the connection type
          is set to Auto-negotiation.

          Example:

             ; set connection type to 10 Mbps and Full Duplex
             LOAD AX88190 INT=5 PORT=300 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.2 S10FD
