1. Notes on Setup

  For Novell, Lan Manager & Packet Driver, first insert the "Drivers Disk"
  into drive A, and type INSTALL at the A drive command prompt.
  The Installation program will copy files to the destination directory and
  modify your related files e.g. CONFIG.SYS &   NET.CFG, automatically.

      C:\> A:
      A:\> INSTALL

  For Windows for Workgroup, Windows NT & Windows 95, use the "Network Setup"
  utility provided by windows system to install the PCMCIA Fast Ethernet
  Adapter to the system and system will load the drivers at start up time.

  After installation, simply reboot the machine to enable PCMCIA Fast Ethernet

2. Install PCMCIA Software Manually

  The automatical Installation Software has been carefully designed to detect
  some combination of hardware and software already installed on your PC, and
  setup your PC to enable the PCMCIA Fast Ethernet card. If for any reason the
  Installation Software failed to complete.  You can follow the few simple
  steps to copy the enabler from the Drivers Disk onto your PC.

  1. If you have Windows for Workgroup, Windows NT or Windows 95, follow the
     instructions for installing PCMCIA Card in your system manual.

  2. Determine if any third party generic enabler has been installed on your PC.
     You identify this by a search through the CONFIG.SYS file for the following

     Vendor           Device Loaded in CONFIG.SYS
     ---------------  -------------------------------
     Phoenix          DEVICE=C:\PCMPLUS\PCMSCD.EXE

     If one of them exist in your CONFIG.SYS, then you can use it to enable the
     PCMCIA Fast Ethernet Card.  Follow the PCMCIA installation instruction in
     the manual that come with your PC.

  3. If you decide to use accompanied Enabler, or if the generic enabler
     does not support the PCMCIA Fast Ethernet Card, follow Steps 4 below.

  4. Insert Driver Disk in drive A:.

  5. Type C: at the command prompt.

  6. Type MD ENABLER to make a new directory.

  7. Type COPY A:\ENABLER\*.* C:\ENABLER to copy the enabler to your directory.

  8. Modify the PATH= statement in your AUTOEXEC.BAT to include path C:\ENABLER.
     Change From  PATH=<Original Path>
            To    PATH=<Original Path>;C:\ENABLER

  9. Using LANEN.EXE to enable the PCMCIA card no matter wheher your PC has
     loaded Card Service or not.

3. Drivers Supported on this release of the Drivers Disk

  LANEN.EXE     Direct PCMCIA Card Enabler for DOS, and client driver for
                Card Services.

  LE100ODI.COM   DOS ODI Driver
  LE100.DOS      DOS real mode NDIS Driver
  LE100PD.COM    DOS real mode Packet Driver
  LE100NDS.386   Enhance Mode NDIS Driver for Windows for Workgroup
  TX100.SYS      Enhance Mode NDIS Driver for Windows NT Supporting Softex
  TX100NDS.SYS   Enhance Mode NDIS Driver for Windows 95/98/ME
  TX100ND5.SYS   Enhance Mode NDIS Driver for Windows 2000/XP

4. Notes on using EMM386 or QEMM

  PCMCIA Cards standard is first designed for memory cards, and then
  the I/O cards specification is added.  Therefore all I/O cards
  (including Ethernet) must be initialised as memory cards
  and then switched into I/O mode operation by an enabler software.

  Therefore, the enabler software (such as LANEN.EXE) must see the
  PCMCIA card memory when it is executed.  DOS Extended memory manager
  such as EMM386 and QEMM take control of entire PC memory space and
  disable any PCMCIA card memory space.

  There are two solutions available:

  (1) Run enabler to enable the card before EMM386 or QEMM is loaded.

  (2) Exclude at least 4K of memory from EMM386 or QEMM controlling,
      then run the enabler.  This is most suitable for DOS ODI or NDIS
      enabler.  To find out free memory you can use, reboot machine
      and press <F5> then the screen displays Starting MS-DOS...  Run
      MSD and press <M> to display memory available.

5. Technical Support

  If you still cannot get the PCMCIA Card working properly, our
  technical experts are always ready to help.  Please be at your
  computer, have the PCMCIA Card, Drivers Disk, and the following
  information available:

  * Version number of LANEN.EXE, or any drivers you are running
  * The extact text of any error message displayed on your screen
  * The type of computer
  * The type of network
  * The detail content of the CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT files
