1. Introduction

   This Ethernet NDIS driver for DOS is intended to bring additional driver
   support to Microsoft LAN Manager 2.0 for DOS workstations.  You can use
   the LAN Manager setup utility, SETUP, to import new drivers, so that the
   network may be configured with the new drivers.


2. Directory Structure and Contents

   The following directory structure on the installation diskette is to meet
   the LAN Manager requirement.

	\ <ROOT>
	³
	ÀÄÄÄMSLANMAN.DOS
	    ³
	    ÀÄÄÄDRIVERS
		³
		ÃÄÄÄETHERNET
		³   ³
		³   ÀÄÄÄRETH
		³	³
		³	ÃÄÄ RETH.DOS
		³	³
		³	ÀÄÄ PROTOCOL.INI
		³
		ÀÄÄÄNIF
		    ³
		    ÀÄÄ RETH.NIF

    The following describes the directory and file contents under the tree:

      MSLANMAN.DOS and DRIVERS	  Directories containing NDIS driver for
				  DOS.

      ETHERNET	     A directory contains the NDIS driver and PROTOCOL.INI
		     for PCMCIA Ethernet Cards. The NDIS driver should have
		     it own directory in the name of the .NIF file.

      RETH	     A directory contains the NDIS driver and PROTOCOL.INI.

      RETH.DOS	     The NDIS2 driver.

      PROTOCOL.INI   The prototype of the final PROTOCOL.INI which stores
		     the configuration and binding information for all
		     protocols and MAC modules in the system.  This is for
		     use of the Protocol Manager during initialization.

		     This file will be bound or modified during the instal-
		     lation.

      NIF	     A directory contains the network information file of
		     the NDIS driver for the SETUP utility.

      RETH.NIF	     The NIF file for the Ethernet NDIS driver.

		    drivername=RETH$
		    IOBASE=0x300
		    INTERRUPT=5

     6) Reboot your PC system.
