1. Introduction:

   This Ethernet NDIS driver for OS/2 is intended to bring additional driver
   support to Microsoft LAN Manager 2.0 for OS/2 servers and 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.OS2
	    ³
	    ÀÄÄÄDRIVERS
		³
		ÃÄÄÄETHERNET
		³   ³
		³   ÀÄÄÄRETH
		³	³
		³	ÃÄÄRETH.OS2
		³	³
		³	ÀÄÄPROTOCOL.INI
		³
		ÀÄÄÄNIF
		    ³
		    ÀÄÄRETH.NIF


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

      MSLANMAN.OS2 and DRIVERS	  Contains NDIS driver for OS/2.

      ETHERNET	     Contains the NDIS driver and PROTOCOL.INI for PCMCIA
		     Ethernet Cards.  The NDIS driver should have its own
		     subdirectory in the name of the associated NIF file.

      RETH	     Contains the NDIS driver and PROTOCOL.INI.

      RETH.OS2	     The NDIS driver for OS/2.

      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 installa-
		     tion.

      NIF	     This file contains the NDIS network information that is
		     read by the setup utility.

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