Keywords for the B440x 32-BIT Netware Server ODI driver.

TxDescriptors=
This is to initialize Descriptor resources on the adapter for transmits.

When this keyword is used, the switch to which the adapter cable is connected 
must also be forced to the same speed. If not, the adapter and switch may run at
different duplex modes. It is important to have the switch and adapter set properly. 
The best way to ensure good connectivity is to not set the speed keyword and
allow for automatic link setup (auto-negotiation).

AUTO, 10FD,10HD, 100FD, 100HD, 
Default is Auto.

Link=

this keyword or the Speed keyword.
