    system that uses the NDIS 2.0.1 driver is functionally compatible
    with the NDIS drivers included in the driver diskette.

  Configuration Parameters in PROTOCOL.INI for FA310.DOS
  When the FA310TX NDIS 2 for DOS driver, FA310.DOS, is loaded into
  the network operating system, the driver looks into the PROTOCOL.INI
  file for specific configuration requirement.  The keywords are
  optional and come with their respective default values.

    DRIVERNAME     - This keyword specifies the driver name for the

    NETWORKADDRESS - This keyword specifies the MAC address (in hex)
                     used by the adapter.  This option is used only to
                     override the node address stored in the adapter.
                     With this keyword specified, the specified address
                     will be used instead of the adapter's actual MAC
                     address stored in the serial ROM.

    DATA_RATE      - This parameter specifies the data rate of the network
                     adapter.  If DATA_RATE is not specified, the adapter
                     card will automatically detect the data rate.
                     Allowed Parameters: MB10, MB100

    SLOT           - This parameter specifies the slot number used for
                     notifications. For PCI slot, you can specify from
                     1 to 16.

    SIA_MODE       - This parameter specifies the connector type
                     configuration of the network adapter card.
