   Server Driver for NetWare 5.0

   Introduction:
   -------------
   This document describes the procedure to install the NetWare v5.0
   server driver for REALTEK RTL8139 Fast Ethernet adapter.

   Location of Driver:     \NWSERVER\500\RTSSRV.LAN

   Installaton Procedure :
   ---------------------
      Before you start with the installation  process,  make sure that
      the Novell NetWare v5.0 server is properly installed.
      Similarly, your adapter should also be properly installed in your
      server.
      1. Insert the Realtek Driver Diskette into drive A and check the
         contents of subdirectory  \NWSERVER\500, It should contain the
         following file :

         RTSSRV.LANÄÄÄ  Novell NetWare V5.0 Server Driver
         RTSSRV.LDIÄÄÄ  Novell NetWare V5.0 Server Driver Installation
                        Information File

      2. At the  NetWare prompt (indicated by the Server name), run the
         NWCONFIG.NLM program by typing:

         server name: LOAD NWCONFIG <Enter>

      3. Select  " Driver Options (Load/unload disk and...) "  and press
         <Enter>.
     
      4. Select " Configure network drivers " and press <Enter>.

      5. Select " Select a driver " and press <Enter>.      

      6. Press the <Ins> key to specify other drivers to install.

      7. Press  <F3>  and specify the driver path (A:\NWSERVER\500)
         and press <Enter>.

      8. The RTSSRV.LAN driver should appear in your choice list for the
         'Select a  LAN  Driver' field. Choose this  driver to start the
         driver loading and  binding  procedure.  This will allow you to
         load and bind all 4 frame types supported by NetWare.

      9. Add the LOAD and BIND statements you require to the server's
         AUTOEXEC.NCF file so that the LAN driver will load automatically
         each time the server starts up.


      Installation Notes:
      -------------------
      1.Installing Multiple LAN Adapters:
         The keyword  "SLOT"  is  provided for multiple LAN adapters in a
         single server by the driver RTSSRV.LAN.  So, add EtherID in LOAD
         commands. For example:

         LOAD DLKRTS SLOT=1 FRAME=Ethernet_802.2 NAME=LAN_A 
         BIND IPX TO LAN_A NET=11
         LOAD DLKRTS SLOT=2 FRAME=Ethernet_802.2 NAME=LAN_B 
         BIND IPX TO LAN_B NET=22

      2. The keyword  "MEDIUMTYPE"  is  provided for specifying adapter's speed
         (AUTO, 100FULL, 100HALF, 10FULL, 10HALF), add SPEED in LOAD commands. 
         For example:

         LOAD DLKRTS SLOT=1 MEDIUMTYPE=100HALF FRAME=Ethernet_802.2 NAME=LAN_A 
         BIND IPX TO LAN_A NET=11
