 Introduction
 ------------
        The ODI driver program allows you to run multiple protocol stacks
        and install up to two network adapters in a workstation. This ODI
        driver supports the Port, Node Address, Protocol and Frame options
        for creating your own NET.CFG file. For more information on these
        keywords, please refer to Novell's "NetWare ODI shell for DOS -
        NET.CFG options". This installation assumes that the PCMCIA drivers
        are working properly.

 Requirements
 ------------
        .A PCMCIA compatible Laptop
        .A PCMCIA chipset that is PCIC compatible (Intel, Cirrus, Vadem, and
         VLSI) or a Card Service has been installed.
        .An ODI compatible network operating system
        .A PCMCIA Fast Ethernet Card
        .A knowledge of basic DOS commands and editing text files

 Minimum Skill Level
 -------------------
        .A knowledge of basic DOS commands
        .A knowledge of editing text files
        .A knowledge of DOS basic file structure (CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT)
        .A knowledge of the network driver configuration being used
        .Please see Support Options if you are not comfortable will this
         skill level

 Getting Started
 ---------------
        There are three methods, auto-installation, manual installation (for NW
        3.11 wks) and Novell Client install (for NW 3.12 & 4.x)

        Auto-installation
        -----------------
        1. Run INSTALL.EXE from driver diskette's root directory.
        2. Select "Netware 3.x or 4.x workstation" 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 focus on the setting you want to make
           change and press Enter to select a fit value.  When the
           configuration is acceptable, 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
           AUTOEXEC.BAT and NET.CFG under user's agreement.
        6. Installation is complete.  Please reboot the computer to
           make your Netware connection.

        Manual Installation
        -------------------
        1. Copy the A:\NETWARE\LE100ODI.COM file from diskette to the Netware
           client directory containing Novell's LSL.COM, IPXODI.COM and
           NETx.COM files.

        2. Follow Novell's instructions on using ODI programs. You can
           substitute the LE100ODI.COM whenever a reference is made to the
           Hardware Specific Module.

           A typical ODI workstation startup batch file includes:

           >LSL         ; Link Support Layer Module provided by Novell
           >LE100ODI    ; Hardware Specific Module
           >IPXODI      ; IPX Protocol Stack Module provided by Novell
           >NETx        ; DOS Shell Support Module provided by Novell
           >LOGIN

        Novell Client Installation
        --------------------------
        1. Run the NetWare Client Install v1.21
                -Get the 4 Client disks from the network administrator
                or
                -Run the \NWCLIENT\INSTALL.EXE in a previous installation

        2. A message appears on the screen asking you whether or not you want
           the program to perform modifications on your AUTOEXEC.BAT and
           CONFIG.SYS files.

        3. Answer "Yes".  The program then modifies your AUTOEXEC.BAT and
           CONFIG.SYS files accordingly and creates backup copies.

        4. The following message appears:
                -Install support for MS Windows? (Y/N):

        5. Answer accordingly and provide a path if necessary.

        6. The program displays the following:
                - Configure your workstation for backup by a NetWare server
                  running software such as SBACKUP? (Y/N): No

        7. Answer accordingly and provide a path if necessary.

        8. Select a driver for your network board.

        9. From the driver list, select "Other Drivers".

       10. Go to the Insert the Driver Disk dialog box and specify the path
           where the ODI driver and INS files reside.
           For example:  C:\NETWARE

       11. Press Enter and select the target ODI driver.

       12. Specify the driver's optional settings.

       13. Press F10 to save to new configuration.

       14. Highlight "Install press here" and press <Enter> to install.

           The program copies the necessary files for NetWare Client.  Continue
           the installation procedure to completion. Upon completion, a new
           NET.CFG file will be created in your DOS directory.  Typically, this
           file contains the following lines:

              Link Driver LE100ODI
                   PORT  320
                   INT   11
                   #FRAME Ethernet_802.3
                   FRAME Ethernet_802.2
                        :

           Edit STARTNET.BAT for the ODI workstation performs the following:

              SET NWLANGUAGE=ENGLISH  --Set NetWare 4.X to English language
              LSL               --Link Support Layer Module provided by Novell
              LE100ODI          --Hardware Specific Module
              IPXODI            --IPX Protocol Stack Module provided by Novell
              VLM               --DOS Support Module provided by Novell
              F:                --Change to connected device
              LOGIN .ADMIN      --Login to file server as user ADMIN

       15. Run STARTNET to access the Novell network.
