1. Introduction:

   These Ethernet NDIS drivers conform to 3Com/Microsoft Network Driver In-
   terface Specification v2.0.1 (Final 1990-10-8). It supports many network
   applications, such as Microsoft LAN Manager for DOS, SUN PC-NFS, Banyan
   VINES for DOS workstations, Sitka 10NET and Wollongong Pathway Access.


2. Contents of the Subdirectory:

      RETH.DOS	      The NDIS driver for DOS.

      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 pro-
		      tocols 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.


3. Installation

   First, install your PCMCIA Ethernet Adapter on your PC system following
   the procedure described in your installation manual.  Then skip to the
   related section for your specific network application to continue the
   NDIS driver installation.


3.1 SUN PC-NFS Installation

   * Installation on a DOS Workstation

     1) If PC-NFS has not been installed yet, follow the instructions in
	the PC-NFS installation manual to install PC-NFS.

	Or, change the current directory to C:\NFS and run NFSCONF. Then
	choose "Configure an Ethernet network connection" when it appears
	during installation.

     2) Choose "NDIS" when you are asked to select the network driver used
	for PC-NFS.

     3) When the installation is completed, choose "Exit" to return to
	DOS.

     4) Copy RETH.DOS to the \LANMAN directory of your hard disk.

     5) Edit CONFIG.SYS to add the following line:

	     DEVICE=C:\LANMAN\RETH.DOS

	between

	     DEVICE=C:\LANMAN\PROTMAN.SYS
	     DEVICE=C:\LANMAN\NFS-NDIS.SYS.

     6) Edit C:\LANMAN\PROTOCOL.NFS as follows:

	a) Replace "your-mac-module" with "RETH_NIF"in the file.  There
	   are two "your-mac-module" to be changed.

	b) Replace "YOURMAC$" with "RETH$".

	c) Replace the line "option 1 = value 1 etc" with the desired
	   option or delete it.

	Following is an example of the modified PROTOCOL.NFS:

	      [protocol manager]
		    drivername=PROTMAN$
	      [RETH_NIF]
		    drivername=RETH$
		    IOBASE=0x300
		    INTERRUPT=5
	      [NFS-NDIS]
		    drivername=NFSLINK$
		    bindings=RETH_NIF

     7) Rename "PROTOCOL.NFS" to "PROTOCOL.INI".

     8) Edit AUTOEXEC.BAT to add the line "C:\LANMAN\NETBIND" before
	"PRT *".

     9) Reboot the PC system.


3.2 Banyan VINES Installation

   * Installation on the First DOS Workstation

     1) Create a DOS boot diskette with DOS 3.1 or later.

     2) Copy all files from \NDIS of Master Disk to the boot diskette.

     3) Copy RETH.DOS and PROTOCOL.INI to the boot diskette.

     4) Edit PROTOCOL.INI as follows:

	      [protocol manager]
		    drivername=PROTMAN$
	      [VINES_XIF]
		    drivername=NETBEUI$
		    bindings=RETH_NIF
	      [RETH_NIF]
		    drivername=RETH$
		    IOBASE=0x300
		    INTERRUPT=5

     5) At the DOS prompt, type "PCCONFIG";  the configuration window is
	displayed.  Choose "Network Card Settings", then choose "NDIS
	Ethernet", and enter the following parameters:

	     Interrupt Level: [interrupt_number]
	     PROTOCOL.INI bindings = RETH_NIF

     6) From the Configuration Main Window, choose "Login Environment
	Settings", then choose "Select Default Communication Driver"
	and "NDIS Ethernet".  Save the changes and exit to DOS.

     7) Edit CONFIG.SYS to add the following two lines:

	   DEVICE=\PROTMAN.DOS /I=drive_name  (for example, A:)
	   DEVICE=\RETH.DOS

      8) Reboot the PC system.


   * Installation on Additional DOS Workstations

     1) Create a DOS boot diskette with DOS 3.1 or later.

     2) From an existing workstation, login to the server.  With the new
	boot diskette in the floppy drive, run PCCOPY. Select "NDIS Ether-
	net" and enter the following parameters:

	     Interrupt Level: [interrupt_number]
	     PROTOCOL.INI bindings = RETH_NIF

	This will copy the VINES software to your boot diskette.

     3) Insert the boot diskette to any floppy drive of the working DOS
	workstation, repeat step 3 to 8 in "Installing on the First DOS
	Workstation".


   * Installing on the First OS/2 Workstation

      1) Insert your "Master Disk OS/2" diskette into a floppy drive and
	 run VCLIENT.

      2) Choose "Install directory" (e.g. C:\VINES) and "NDIS Driver Ether-
	 net" as the driver.

      3) Copy RETH.OS2 and PROTOCOL.INI from the Ethernet Driver Disk to
	 the path "[destination drive:]\VINES\DRIVERS\BN_NDIS\ND_ETH".
	 (e.g. C:\VINES\DRIVERS\BN_NDIS\ND_ETH).

      4) Edit CONFIG.SYS by changing the following line:

	      DEVICE=C:\VINES\DRIVERS\BN_NDIS\ND_ETH\<filename>

	 to "DEVICE=C:\VINES\DRIVERS\BN_NDIS\ND_ETH\RETH.OS2".

      5) Modify PROTOCOL.INI in C:\VINES\DRIVERS\BN_NDIS\ND_ETH, as shown
	 below.

	      [protocol manager]
		    drivername=PROTMAN$
	      [VINES_XIF]
		    drivername=NETBEUI$
		    bindings=RETH_NIF
	      [RETH_NIF]
		    drivername=RETH$
		    IOBASE=0x300
		    INTERRUPT=5

      6) Change the directory to VINES and then execute PCCONFIG to confi-
	 gure your PC network, if necessary.

      7) Shut down OS/2 system and reboot.

      8) At the OS/2 prompt, change the directory to VINES and run BAN.


   * Installing on an Additional OS/2 Workstation

     Step 1 : Setting up "Installation Diskette"

      1) Format a 2HD diskette.

      2) From an existing workstation, login to the Server.

      3) Run VCLIENT, and select "Build an Install Diskette" item from the
	 the menu.  Then, fill in VINES Directory Selection and FD driver
	 (e.g. C:\VINES and A:) to start the process.

      4) Choose "NDIS Driver Ethernet" as the driver when the inquiry appears.

      5) At the OS/2 prompt, change the drive letter to where the "Instal-
	 lation Diskette" is located (e.g. A:),  and run PCCONFIG to con-
	 figure your PC network.


     Step 2 : Installing on an OS/2 workstation

      6) Replace "Master Disk OS/2" diskette with the installation diskette
	 built in Step 1.  Follow the procedure described in "Installing on
	 the First OS/2 Workstation" to install.

	    Interrupt Level: [interrupt_number]
	    PROTOCOL.INI bindings = RETH_NIF

	 This will copy the VINES software to your boot diskette.

      7) Bring the boot diskette back to the working OS/2 workstation and
	 repeat step 3 to 8 in "Installing on the First OS/2 Workstation".


3.3 Sitka 10NET Installation

    1) While installing 10NET, choose "None of the above" when you are
       asked to select the type of your LAN card.

    2) In DOS, copy RETH.DOS and PROTOCOL.INI to the directory in which
       10Net is located.

    3) Edit CONFIG.SYS to add the following lines to the end of file:

	     DEVICE=C:\10NET\10PROT.DOS /I:C:\10NET
	     DEVICE=C:\10NET\10BEUI.DOS
	     DEVICE=C:\10NET\RETH.DOS

    4) Edit AUTOEXEC.BAT to add the following line to the beginning of
       the file:

	      C:\10NET\10BIND

    5) Edit C:\10NET\PROTOCOL.INI as follows:

	      [protocol manager]
		    drivername=PROTMAN$
	      [10BEUI]
		    drivername="10BEUI$"
		    sessions=10
		    packets=40
		    stackcount=6
		    bindings=RETH_NIF
	      [RETH_NIF]
		    drivername=RETH$
		    IOBASE=0x300
		    INTERRUPT=5

    6) Reboot the PC system.


3.4 DEC Pathworks Installation

    1) Copy all files under \NDIS from the Ethernet Driver Disk to the
       \NDIS directory of DEC Pathworks Client Setup Disk (create the
       directory if it does not exist).

    2) Insert DEC Pathworks Setup Disk into any floppy drive and run
       NETSETUP.EXE.

    3) Select "Yes" or "No" to confirm the type of your keyboard.

    4) Select DECNET and insert PWRKS 4.0 DNET TRANSPORT Disk 1 when
       prompted for.

       you can create an initial workstation diskette when you are asked
       to.

    6) Enter the destination drive letter in which the client drivers are
       to be installed when prompted for.  For example, "C".

    7) Press <Enter> to continue.

    8) When the installation is completed, press F10 to exit the setup
       utility.

    9) Modify the "SHELL=" line in your CONFIG.SYS as follows:
