===============================================================================
1. LAN Manager Workstation/Server

   Setup driver procedures on LAN Manager workstation/server :
   -----------------------------------------------------------
      Before you start with the installation process, make sure that the
      adapter  is properly  installed  and  configured. Make  sure  your
      Microsoft LAN Manager is properly installed.

      1) Run the appropriate Microsoft Lan Manager SETUP for computer you
         are setting up.(DOS, OS/2 or OS/2 Server). Select "Configuration"
         item ,(the 100/10M PCI Adapter driver isn't included on the Lan 
         Manager disk) and insert the 100/10M PCI Adapter driver disk, specify
         path a:\, and select the RTL8139A Fast Ethernet Adapter compatible
         driver and follow the directions.

      2) When completed, reboot your computer.

         Installing Multiple LAN Adapters:
         ---------------------------------
          To Follow Setup driver Procedure and add two adapter,
          Under  DOS  mode, you can modify the EtherID or BusNo+DeviceNo
          Keyword field in file C:\LANMAN\PROTOCOL.INI.

   Sample Configuration Files:
   ---------------------------
      CONFIG.SYS (for DOS will contain):

          DEVICE=C:\LANMAN.DOS\DRIVERS\PROTMAN\PROTMAN.DOS /I:C:\LANMAN.DOS
          DEVICE=C:\LANMAN.DOS\DRIVERS\ETHERNET\RTL8139\RTSND.DOS
