ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ?

    1.SLOT ( Required for multiple cards )

      Specifies the NBI (NetWare Bus Interface) slot number.

      For PCI adapters, SLOT is derived from bus number and device
      location as defined by the PCI specification. One way to determine
      the slot number is to load the driver from the command line. You'll
      be prompted with valid device number(s) for the adapter(s). Select
      one of them.

      Syntax:  SLOT=n     (n = 1,2,3,4,...)


    2.NODE

      Specifies a local administered address (LAA) unique to each adapter.

      Use this option to provide your own unique node address
      for the adapter.  The node address is a 12-digit hexadecimal
      number; the second digit must be one of the following digits: 2, 6,
      A, E.

      Syntax: NODE=xnxxxxxxxxxx

      n = 2, 6, A, E
      x = hexadecimal number

      Default: The adapter's assigned address.

    3.MEDIATYPE

      Specifies the mediatype that is currently used.

      Use this option to force your connection type. We support the
      following media types:

         Type       Ethernet Standard    Duplex
       --------     -----------------    ------
        AUTO          auto-detect         Auto
        UTP           10BASE-T            Half
        UTPFULL       10BASE-T            Full
        FAST          100BASE-T           Half
        FASTFULL      100BASE-T           Full

      Syntax: MEDIATYPE=Type

      Type: see above.

      Default: Auto-Detect.


[Note]: For Netware 4.1X server
        If you upgraded MSM.NLM, ETHERTSM.NLM and NBI.NLM that was
        created later than Dec 1997, you should use this driver.
