                     Windows NT Server Remote Boot Service
                              Installation Guide
                     =====================================


Install the NT RIPL Server
==========================

 1. Install the Remote boot Service on the NT Server.

 2. Choose 'Control Panel', 'Network', 'Add Software', 'Remoteboot Service',
    and then put NT server CD or disk to install Remote boot Service.

    Note: To install RPL server, you must install DLC & NETBEUI protocols in
          your NT server first.

 3. Install MS-DOS files for Remote boot workstation.

    copy all the MS-DOS 6.22 files to
         ----->\\systemroot\rpl\rplfiles\binfiles\dos622
    copy c:\dos\*.* \\systemroot\rpl\rplfiles\binfiles\dos622
    attrib -s -h c:\io.sys
    attrib -s -h c:\msdos.sys
    copy c:\io.sys \\systemroot\rpl\rplfiles\binfiles\dos622
    copy c:\msdos.sys \\systemroot\rpl\rplfiles\binfiles\dos622
    copy c:\command.com \\systemroot\rpl\rplfiles\binfiles\dos622
    attrib +s +h c:\io.sys
    attrib +s +h c:\msdos.sys

 4. Create Remote boot configuration for new adapter.

 5. Copy the MS-DOS device driver(NDIS2) for the Ethernet Adapter to the
    \\systemroot\rpl\bblock\ndis directory.
    for example: DM9PCI.DOS NDIS2 driver for the CNet PRO200 Fast Ethernet
                 Adapter.

 6. Make a directory \\systemroot\rpl\bblock\netbeui\pci, and then create
    pci.cnf, protocol.ini files in this directory. The temporary for
    pci.cnf & protocol.ini are loacated on the \Bootrom directory in this
    driver diskette.

 Sample for PCI.CNF
 ==================
 ; DOS on CNet PRO200 PCI Ethernet Adapter

 LDR BBLOCK\RPLSTART.COM ~
 DAT BBLOCK\NETBEUI\PCI\PROTOCOL.INI          ;must match with 3.2 setting.

 DRV BBLOCK\NDIS\DM9PCI.DOS ~ ~ ~             ;must match with driver.
 DRV BBLOCK\PROTMAN.DOS /I:C:\LANMAN.DOS ~ M 

 Sample for PROTOCOL.INI
 =======================
 [protman]
   drivername = protman$
   dynamic = yes
   priority = netbeui 

 [netbeui_xif]
   drivername = netbeui$
   bindings = pci_nif
   names = 6
   ncbs = 12
   packets = 20
   pipeline = 10
   sessions = 6
   stacksize = 512
   lanabase = 0 

 [xnsnb_xif]
   drivername = xnsnb$
   bindings = pci_nif
   load = xnsnb[cbr]
   lanabase = 1 

 [xnstp_xif]
   drivername = xnstp$
   bindings = pci_nif
   load = xnstp[ub]
   lanabase = 1 

 [tcpip_xif]
   drivername = TCPIP$
   disabledhcp = (TCPIP_NO_DHCP)
   ipaddress0 = (TCPIP_ADDRESS)
   subnetmask0 = (TCPIP_SUBMASK)
   defaultgateway0 = (TCPIP_GATEWAY)
   tcpsegmentsize = 1450
   tcpwindowsize = 1450
   nbsessions = 6
   load = tcptsr[c],tinyrfc[c],emsbfr[cr]
   unload = "unloadt /notsr[dc]"
   bindings = pci_nif
   lanabase = 1

 [ipx_xif]
   drivername = ipx$
   load = ipxmark[u],ipx[u]
   unload = ipxrel[c]
   bindings = pci_nif
   lanabase = 1 

 [msdlc_xif]
   drivername = msdlc$
   bindings = pci_nif
   load = msdlc[ub]
   unload = msdlc[u] 

 [pci_nif]
   drivername = DM9PCI$                      ;must match with driver.

 7. Use RPLCMD utility to add a BBLOCK record for new adapter under MS-DOS
    Prompt, type:
   
     C:>Net Start RemoteBoot
     C:>RPLCMD

 8. You must follow the direction displayed on the screen Adapter Boot Config
    Profile Service Vendor Wksta [Quit] V
    Add Del Enum: A
    VendorName=xxxxxx(The first three Ethernet ID)
    Vendor Comment=

    Adapter Boot Config Profile Service Vendor Wksta [Quit] B
    Add Del Enum: A
    BootName=Dosx
    VendorName=xxxxxx(The first three Ethernet ID)
    BbcFile=Bblock\netbeui\Pci\Pci.cnf
    BootComment=Name of this Adapter
    WindowsSize=0

    Adapter Boot Config Profile Service Vendor Wksta [Quit] C
    Add Del Enum: A
    ConfigName=Dos622x
    BootName=Dosx
    DirName=Dos
    DirName2=Dos622
    FitShared=Fits\Dos622.fit
    FitPersonal=Fits\Dos622p.fit
    ConfigComment=Dos 6.22 <Adapter name>
    DirName3=
    DirName4=

 9. Shutdown Windows NT Server, and reboot it.

10. Log into NT server as Administrator.

11. Satrt Remote Boot Service and Remote boot manager.

12. Under MS-DOS Prompt, type:
   
     C:>Net Start Remoteboot

13 In the 'Network administrator' group, choose 'Remoteboot Manager' and then:

   a. Choose 'Remoteboot', 'New Profile' to create Profile Name.
  
   b. Add new workstation for this Ethernet Adapter and choose PCI Profile file.

   Note: If the Node ID of Workstation does not match with your profile file, 
         you can use "Convert Adapters" in Remoteboot menu of Remoteboot
         Manager to configure or create the Profile file.
