                  -----------------------------------------
           Driver Installation for SCO UNIX V.3.2.4X (TCP/IP v1.2X)
           --------------------------------------------------------

  Getting Started
  ---------------
  The necessary files for driver installation for SCO UNIX are stored
  in a compressed format.

  Installation Procedure
  ----------------------

  1.  Login to the network as root. (On maintenance mode)

  2.  Copy the compressed file ngrXXX.Z (XXX indicates the version number,
      eg. ngr224.Z) from the \SCO directory of the driver diskette into
      your hard disk.

  3.  Use doscp command to copy the SCOUNIX Driver into the UNIX directory.

          example:

                # cd /temp
                # doscp /<path>/ngr224.Z  ngr224.Z

  4.  Uncompress ngrXXX.Z to ngrXXX,

          example:

                # uncompress ngr224

  5.  Copy the files to a blank 3.5" floppy diskette.

          example:


            #dd if=ngr224 of=/dev/fd0135ds18

         Mark the diskette:

            NETGEAR FA310TX Fast Ethernet PCI Adapter LLI driver
            Rel.02.24

  4.  Run custom from the menu selection.

         Custom -> Install -> A New Product -> Entire Product

  5.  Put the distribution diskette in the drive and select continue.

  6.  When prompted for distribution floppy 1, press enter.

  7.  When custom has completed, remove the diskette and quit custom.

  8.  Add a chain by executing the netconfig command

          example:

            #netconfig

  9.  A menu similar to the following appears on the screen:
      
          Available options:  
            1. Add a chain
            2. Remove a chain
            3. Reconfigure an element in a chain
            4. Quit

          Select option : 1 

  10. The following prompt appears:
      
          Num  Name        Description
            1. nfs         SCO NFS Runtime System for SCO Unix
            2. sco_ipx     SCO IPX/SPX for UNIX
            3. sco_tcp     SCO TCP/IP for UNIX 
          Select top level of chain to Add or q to quit: 3

  11. It will show all drivers available in the system and select next
      level of chain to Add or to quit.  Select "ngrpci0".  This value
      varies according to your card number.

  12. The following prompt appears:

         Add chain sco_tcp->ngrpci0 (y/n): y

         Note:  
               Add chain sco_tcp -> ngrpci unit 0 (y/n); install card # 1
               Add chain sco_tcp -> ngrpci unit 1 (y/n); install card # 2
               Add chain sco_tcp -> ngrpci unit 2 (y/n); install card # 3
               Add chain sco_tcp -> ngrpci unit 3 (y/n); install card # 4

               It depends on card number.
 
  13. If you are configuring board 0, the following messages will
      prompt for specifying the access type of PCI bus.

          **************************************************************
          *                      !!!! Note !!!!!                       *
          * This driver only support the PCI BIOS call (in 32-bit      *

      Enter the broadcast address for this interface
                                      (default: 202.39.74.255):                                   

      Note: Specify the subnet mask for the interface. Please consult the
            systems administrator if it is unknown.  The default subnet mask
            is 255.255.255.0.

  17. It will show the information you configure.  If all values are correct,

  23. Reboot UNIX by typing the following:

        #init 0

 
  Installation for multi-cards:
  -----------------------------
  This installation is for drivers of SCO UNIX (Runtime v3.2.4x) with
  TCP/IP v.1.2.

  1. It is allowable to have four network interface cards in a system.

  2. Support geteway function. (routing function)

  3. Statistical function is added when the following command is
     executed:

       # netstat -i

       Name     Mtu   Network   Address   Ipkts  Ierrs Opkts   Oerrs Collis

       ngrpci0  1500  168.8     unix      556     0     890     0     0
       ngrpci1  1500  202.39.74 unix2     423     0     423     0     0
       lo0      2048  170.23    localhost 180     0     180     0     0


  Note:  The IRQ number must match the value set in ROM BIOS.  Please
         check it before you provide this value to the system.  Most
         of the time, the IRQ number for the PCI bus can be accessed
         by pressing the [DEL] key during power on and choosing the proper
         select item to set the IRQ number for the PCI device.

  Example: ROM PCI/ISA BIOS (2A4X5C31)
           PCI/GREEN FUNCTION SETUP
           AWARD SOFTWARE, INC.

           Press the [DEL] key  -->  PCI/GREEN FUNCTION SETUP

                                     Slot 3 Using INT# : A-PIRQ1
                                           .
                                           .
                                     PIRQ1# Connect IRQ: 5 By Single
