Driver installation Guide for NetWare v4.x server ======================================================= Introduction ============ This document describes the procedure to install Netware 4.x server driver for FriendlyNET PCI595 Fast Ethernet Adapter. Location of Driver: \NETWARE\SRVRODI.4X\SIS900.LAN Note: If you upgraded MSM.NLM, ETHERTSM.NLM and NBI.NLM that was created later than Dec 1997, you should use the driver in directory (\NETWARE\SRVRODI.50). Installation Procedure ====================== A. Installing driver for NetWare 4.10 server: ------------------------------------------ Because this version of driver follows Novell ODI Driver Specification Version 3.3, the old server must be patched to work well with this driver. 1. If you can log into the server as a "ADMIN", copy SIS900.LAN, NBI.NLM, MSM.NLM, and ETHERTSM.NLM from the Driver Diskette subdirectory (\NETWARE\SRVRODI.4X) into the NetWare 4.10 sub- directory SYSTEM of your server. (If some files exist, rename the existing files in the SYSTEM subdirectory). 2. Boot NetWare file server by executing "SERVER" as you usually do. 3. When the NetWare 386 prompt appears (indicated by a colon), load the server driver manually, simply type: : LOAD NBI : LOAD MSM : LOAD ETHERTSM : LOAD SIS900 Frame=Ethernet_xxxxx or, you can directly load file from the driver disk : : LOAD A:\NETWARE\SRVRODI.4X\NBI : LOAD A:\NETWARE\SRVRODI.4X\MSM : LOAD A:\NETWARE\SRVRODI.4X\ETHERTSM : LOAD A:\NETWARE\SRVRODI.4X\SIS900 Frame=Ethernet_xxxxx Note: * NBI.NLM, MSM.NLM, ETHERTSM.NLM will be auto-loaded by loading LAN driver. * Frame type depends on your network frame type. (Default frame type is Ethernet_802.2). 4. Bind IPX to the adapter driver. At the NetWare server prompt, type: : BIND IPX to SIS900 Net=xxxxx Note: Net value depends on your network configuration. 5. Add the load and bind statements you require to the server's AUTOEXEC.NCF file so that the LAN driver will load automatically each time the server starts up. B. Installing driver for NetWare 4.11 server: ------------------------------------------ 1. Boot NetWare file server by executing "SERVER" as you usually do. 2. At the NetWare prompt (indicated by the Server name), run the INSTALL.NLM program by typing: : LOAD INSTALL <Enter> 3. Select "Maintenance/Selective Install" and press <Enter>. 4. Select "LAN Driver Options (Configure/Load/...)" and press <Enter>. 5. Press the <Ins> key to specify other drivers to install. 6. Press <F3> and specify the driver path (A:\NETWARE\SRVRODI.4X) and press <Enter>. 7. The "SIS900.LAN" driver should appear in your choice list for the 'Select a LAN Driver' field. Choose this driver to start the driver loading and binding procedure. This will allow you to load and bind all 4 frame types supported by NetWare. 8. Add the LOAD and BIND statements you require to the server's AUTOEXEC.NCF file so that the LAN driver will load automatically each time the server starts up. Optional LOAD line parameters ============================= 1. SLOT (Required for multiple cards) Specifies the NBI (NetWare Bus Interface) slot number. For PCI adapters, SLOT is derived from bus number and device location as defined by the PCI specification. One way to determine the slot number is to load the driver from the command line. You'll be prompted with valid device number(s) for the adapter(s). Select one of them. Syntax: SLOT=n (n = 1,2,3,4,...) 2. NODE Specifies a local administered address (LAA) unique to each adapter. Use this option to provide your own unique node address for the adapter. The node address is a 12-digit hexadecimal number; the second digit must be one of the following digits: 2, 6, A, E. Syntax: NODE=xnxxxxxxxxxx n = 2, 6, A, E x = hexadecimal number Default: The adapter's assigned address. 3. MEDIATYPE Specifies the mediatype that is currently used. Use this option to force your connection type. We support the fallowing media types: Type Ethernet Standard Duplex -------- ----------------- ------ AUTO auto-detect Auto UTP 10BASE-T Half UTPFULL 10BASE-T Full FAST 100BASE-T Half FASTFULL 100BASE-T Full Syntax: MEDIATYPE=Type Type: see above. Default: Auto-Detect.Download Driver Pack
After your driver has been downloaded, follow these simple steps to install it.
Expand the archive file (if the download file is in zip or rar format).
If the expanded file has an .exe extension, double click it and follow the installation instructions.
Otherwise, open Device Manager by right-clicking the Start menu and selecting Device Manager.
Find the device and model you want to update in the device list.
Double-click on it to open the Properties dialog box.
From the Properties dialog box, select the Driver tab.
Click the Update Driver button, then follow the instructions.
Very important: You must reboot your system to ensure that any driver updates have taken effect.
