*  How to install real mode NDIS driver on MS LAN MANAGER *
Method 1: Using MS LAN MANAGER's SETUP.EXE program(recommended)

    1) MS LAN Manager provides a SETUP.EXE program on their Setup disk.
       Execute this SETUP program to specify the proper driver for the card.

         If you have already installed LAN Manager, run the SETUP program, and
       go to "Configuration => Network Drivers => Add New Config => Other
       Drivers" button. Insert diskette into drive 'A' and set the new path as
       A:\. The SETUP program will copy the necessary NDIS driver programs
       from the \MSLANMAN.DOS directory.

      -If you are installing LAN Manager for the first time, do the following:
       Upon completion of retrieval of the last workstation's disk contents,
       you will be asked if you want to import additional network drivers.
       Answer "YES".

      -If you have already installed LAN Manager in your harddisk, do the following:
       Select the "Configuration => Network Drivers => Add New Config => Other
       Driver" option.

    2) Insert the driver diskette in drive 'A' and input path 'A:\'.
       Following the instructions on the screen, the SETUP program will copy the
       necessary NDIS driver programs from the \MSLANMAN.DOS directory to your
       hardisk(into the LAN Manager directory).

    3) After completion of the SETUP, your CONFIG.SYS file will be modified and
       contain statements referring to the NDIS driver programs. In addition,
       AUTOEXEC.BAT & PROTOCOL.INI files are also be modified.

Method 2: Using INSTALL.EXE program in the driver diskette

    1) Run INSTALL.EXE from driver diskette's root directory.
    2) Select "Microsoft LAN Manager" in "Network Operating System"
       screen and enter "Driver Install" screen.
    3) If current settings are acceptable, select "Start
       Installation" and go to step 5. Otherwise, select "Modify
       Parameters" to make settings changed.
    4) Move cursor to each field you want to make change and press
       Enter to select a fit value.  When the configuration is
       accepted, press Enter on the OK field to exit the screen.
       Back to step 3.
    5) Installation program starts copying related files from
       diskette to the destination directory and modifies
       CONFIG.SYS and PROTOCOL.INI under user's agreement.
    6) Installation is complete.  Please reboot the computer to
       load drver and start LAN Manager in batch.
