The driver named RTSND contained in the directory \NDIS2 conform to the
Network Driver Interface Specification (NDIS) defined by Microsoft/3Com.

A) NDIS/2 Driver Installation for LANtastic 5.0
   ============================================

   LANtastic 5.0 can support the following driver: NDIS driver

   Using the NDIS driver:
   ----------------------
   Under NDIS, use the "RTSND.DOS" driver for the PCI Fast Ethernet adapter.
   Users can use the "RTSND.DOS" driver to replace AEXNDIS.DOS which is the
   NDIS driver offered by ARTISOFT.

   Example  -----  CONFIG.SYS

        DEVICE=C:\LANTASTI\PROTMAN.DOS /I:C:\LANTASTI
        DEVICE=C:\LANTASTI\RTSND.DOS

   Example  -----  AUTOEXEC.BAT / STARTNET.BAT

        C:\LANTASTI\AI-NDIS BIND_TO=RTSND_NIF
        C:\LANTASTI\AILANBIO
        C:\LANTASTI\REDIR MachineName

   Example  -----  PROTOCOL.INI

        [PROTMAN]
           DRIVERNAME = PROTMAN$
           DYNAMIC = YES

        [RTSND_NIF]
           DRIVERNAME = RTSND$

   Comments:
     If you are using PROTMAN.DOS V1.x, you must use the NO_BIND
     option on the AI-NDIS command line in the STARTNET.BAT,
     and you need to run NETBIND.EXE V1.x before AILANBIO.EXE.


B) NDIS/2 Driver Installation for LANtastic 6.0
   ============================================

   LANtastic 6.0 can support the following driver: NDIS driver

   Using the NDIS driver:
   ----------------------

   To install the NDIS driver "RTSND.DOS", users can use the
   LANtastic 6.0  install program, and select "NDIS support for
   network adapters", then insert the PCI Fast Ethernet driver
   diskette, and type the path "A:\NDIS2\DOS".  The install program will
   search for "RTSND.DOS" and "PROTOCOL.INI" and copy these two files
   to the target directory.

   If you have already installed LANtastic 6.0 and need to install
   the PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter, just replace AEXNDIS.DOS with
   the NDIS driver "RTSND.DOS" in CONFIG.SYS

   Example  -----  CONFIG.SYS

        DEVICE=C:\LANTASTI\PROTMAN.DOS /I:C:\LANTASTI
        DEVICE=C:\LANTASTI\RTSND.DOS

   Example  -----  AUTOEXEC.BAT / STARTNET.BAT

    @echo ===== Begin LANtastic configuration =====
    SET LAN_CFG=C:\LANTASTI
    PATH C:\LANTASTI;%PATH%
    SET LAN_DIR=C:\LANTASTI.NET

    rem Please obtain the NETBEUI.EXE program from Microsoft
    NETBEUI
    AI-NDIS BIND_TO=RTSND_NIF
    AILANBIO @STARTNET.CFG
    REDIR THOMAS @STARTNET.CFG

    SERVER C:\LANTASTI.NET @STARTNET.CFG
    NET LOGIN \\THOMAS
    @echo ===== End LANtastic configuration =====

   Example  -----  Protocol.ini

    [PROTMAN]
    Priority=NETBEUI
      DriverName = PROTMAN$
      Dynamic = Yes

    [NETBEUI_XIF]
      DriverName = netbeui$
      Sessions = 6
      NCBS = 12
      Bindings = RTSND_NIF
      LANABASE = 1

    [RTSND_NIF]
      DriverName = RTSND$
