          *******************************************************

       This README file contains instructions for installing the IBM*
       SCSI-2 Fast PCI adapter device drivers for Novell** Netware**
       Versions 3.1X and 4.0 or later, Windows NT**, OS/2* 2.X, or
       the DOS/Windows 3.1 ASPI manager driver and/or CD-ROM device
       driver and CD file system extensions.  It is recommended
       that you print this README file prior to installing the files.


     Note: For standard DOS/Windows 3.1 SCSI hard disk support, no
           device drivers are required, the SCSI-2 Fast PCI adapter
           BIOS provides SCSI hard disk support automatically.  The
           DOS/Windows 3.1 ASPI manager driver is only required to
           be installed if devices other than hard disks are being
           attached to the SCSI-2 adapter and ASPI device specific
           drivers have been supplied with those devices or have
           been obtained from another source.


          __________________________________________________________
          Installing DOS/Windows 3.1 ASPI Manager and CD-ROM Support
          ----------------------------------------------------------

       Use the instructions in this section if you have non-hard disk
       SCSI devices to install which have ASPI compliant device drivers.

       1. Turn on the display and system unit.  Wait for the DOS prompt.

       2. Insert the IBM SCSI-2 Fast PCI Bus Adapter Device Drivers
          Diskette which contains the IBMASPCI.SYS driver and other
          files required for DOS/Windows support into the diskette drive.

       3. Type the following:

                 copy a:\IBMASPCI.SYS c:\

          and then press Enter.

          To include support for IBM CD-ROM drives, also type the following:

                 copy a:\IBMPCICD.SYS c:\

          and then press Enter.

                 copy a:\MSCDEX.EXE c:\

          and then press Enter.

       4. Edit the DOS config.sys file to add the following statement.

                device=c:\IBMASPCI.SYS

          To include support for IBM CD-ROM drives, also add the following
          statement after the device=c:\IBMASPCI.SYS statement.

                device=c:\IBMPCICD.SYS

       5. To include support for the CD-ROM file system, edit the DOS
          autoexec.bat file to add the following statement.

                MSCDEX /D:MSCD001 /M:10

          NOTE: It is recommended that the version of MSCDEX.EXE shipped
                on this diskette be used with this adapter.

       6. Shutdown and then restart the system to activate the driver(s).


  _______________________________________________________________________
     Installing Device Drivers for Novell NetWare Versions 3.1X or 4.X
  -----------------------------------------------------------------------

       Use the instructions in this section if you have Novell NetWare
       Version 3.1X or 4.X installed.

  The NetWare driver (IBMPSCSI.DSK) supports disks, CD-ROM drives, and the
  NetWare SBackup utility for tape backup support directly; therefore,
  TAPEDAI.DSK and CDNASPI.DSK should NOT be loaded.  The driver does support
  an ASPI interface via the IBMASPI.NLM or IBMENTRY.NLM which has been tested
  with the following vendor tape backup software. The phone number for
  further information on each vendor product is provided below.

              Palindrome** - Network Archivist** (708-505-3300)
              Cheyenne**   - ARCserv**           (516-484-5110)

  NOTE: Tape drives which do not support 4K block sizes will result in a
        warning message that they must use ASPI tape backup software.


       1. Turn on the display and system unit.

       2. Prepare the NetWare startup drive according to the instructions
          in the NetWare manual.

       3. Insert the IBM SCSI-2 Fast PCI Bus Adapter Device Drivers
          Diskette which contains the IBMPSCSI.DSK driver and other
          files required for Netware support into the diskette drive.

       4. Type the following:

                 copy a:\IBMPSCSI.DSK d:

          (where d: is the NetWare startup drive) and press Enter.

          The IBMPSCSI.DSK driver is the base device driver for the
          IBM SCSI-2 FAST PCI Bus Adapter which supports hard disks,
          IBM CD-ROM drives, IBM tape drives, and IBM Rewritable Optical
          Disk drives.  Additional Netware Loadable Modules (NLMs)
          described below are also provided to support Netware ASPI
          compliant device drivers required by SCSI device drivers
          and Netware compatible server backup software packages.

       5. Type the following:

                 copy a:\IBMASPI.NLM d:

          (where d: is the NetWare startup drive) and press Enter.

          The IBMASPI.NLM exports the "ASPI_Entry" entry point and sends
          IOCTL commands to the IBMPSCSI.DSK module. These two modules
          are usually all that is required for both disk and ASPI support.

       6. Type the following:

                 copy a:\SCSISCAN.NLM d:

          (where d: is the NetWare startup drive) and press Enter.

          Use of this module is optional and is provided to aid in verifying
          that the customer has successfully installed the IBMPSCSI.DSK,
          IBMASPI.NLM, IBM PCI SCSI adapter and devices. Successful
          execution of this NLM will result in a screen display showing
          all attached SCSI devices and their ID's. It is recommended that
          this NLM be run prior to installing tape backup software.

       7. Type the following:

                 copy a:\IBMENTRY.NLM d:

          (where d: is the NetWare startup drive) and press Enter.

          Use of the IBMENTRY.NLM file is optional and is provided for
          systems which already have another vendor's SCSI adapter
          configured to use the exported "ASPI_Entry" entry point. The
          export name of "IBM_Entry" is provided to ASPI device drivers as
          an alternate entry point in this situation.

       8a. If you are using Netware version 3.12, the following system
           patches also must be copied.

          Type the following:

                 copy a:\nw312\DAICCFIX.NLM d:

          (where d: is the NetWare startup drive) and press Enter.

          Type the following:

                 copy a:\nw312\REALMFIX.NLM d:

          (where d: is the NetWare startup drive) and press Enter.

          Type the following:

                 copy a:\nw312\PM312.NLM d:

          (where d: is the NetWare startup drive) and press Enter.

       8b. If you are using Netware version 4.xx, the following system
           patches also must be copied.

          Type the following:

                 copy a:\nw4xx\DAICCFIX.NLM d:

          (where d: is the NetWare startup drive) and press Enter.

          Type the following:

                 copy a:\nw4xx\REALMFIX.NLM d:

          (where d: is the NetWare startup drive) and press Enter.

          Type the following:

                 copy a:\nw4xx\PM401.NLM d:

          (where d: is the NetWare startup drive) and press Enter.

       9. If you are using Cheyenne ARCserve server backup software for
          DOS Version 4.0 or for Windows Version 5.0 or earlier, you must
          also install the following new version of ASPI50.NLM.

          Type the following:

                 copy a:\ASPI50.NLM d:

          (where d: is the NetWare startup drive) and press Enter.

      10. To start the NetWare operating system, type the following at the
          command prompt:

                 SERVER

          and press Enter.

      11. At this time, make sure all activity on the server has stopped.
          Then load the DAICCFIX.NLM and REALMFIX.NLM NetWare patch files
          in that order if they were copied in step 8a or 8b above and
          you are using Netware version 3.12 or 4.xx.

          NOTE: The PM312.NLM or PM401.NLM patch files will be loaded
                automatically.

      12. At the NetWare server console prompt, type the following:

                 LOAD d:IBMPSCSI

          (where d: is the NetWare startup drive) and press Enter.

           This loads the basic device driver required for Netware
           support.  The appropriate NLMs that you chose to copy above
           should also be loaded at this time depending on your version
           of Netware and other installed equipment/software.

   In summary a customer should first load IBMPSCSI.DSK then IBMASPI.NLM.
   Finally it is recommended that a customer load SCSISCAN.NLM which will
   do an SCSI scan of the bus using the ASPI interface to verify that
   the SCSI adapter, SCSI devices, NLM and DSK are loaded and operating
   properly. Any problems up to this point should be directed to IBM
   customer support.

   NOTE: Before creating or deleting NetWare disk partitions with the
         NetWare INSTALL.NLM utility while running NetWare 3.12 or 4.xx,
         the IBMASPI.NLM and/or IBMENTRY.NLM must be unloaded.
