                    Ethernet Fax/Modem Installation Guide
                    =====================================

1.0     PREPARATION

        In order to make the installation of your Ethernet Fax/Modem PCMCIA 
        adapter as smooth as possible, there are a few preliminary checks 
        that you can make :

        a. Most laptops come with PCMCIA software (card and socket services) 
           already loaded. Ensure that they have been configured correctly. 
           Please refer to your card and socket services manual on how to do 
           this.

        b. If you have run MEMMAKER.EXE, you may need to remove the region 
           parameters from the DEVICEHIGH and LH statements in your 
           config.sys and autoexec.bat files.

           eg. DEVICEHIGH /L:0,17346 C:\DOS\SETVER.EXE should read
               DEVICEHIGH=C:\DOS\SETVER.EXE

        c. Ensure that you have a statement in your config.sys :

           eg. LASTDRIVE=P

           This will allow you to have enough drive letters assigned to 
           accomodate your local drives, cd-rom, PCMCIA SRAM, Flash, and ATA 
           drives. If you are installing for Novell Netware, the network login 
           prompt will be assigned a drive letter. In this case drive Q is the
           login drive.
          
        d. Ensure that you have the Windows path in the PATH statement of 
           your autoexec.bat

           eg. PATH=C:\WINDOWS;


2.0     INSTALLATION

        a. Ensure that you have card and socket services and it is properly
           configured. Please check your computer manual on how to configure
           your card and socket services.

        b. Ensure that you have the Windows path in the PATH statement
           of your autoexec.bat.
        
        c. Run install.exe from drive A: in DOS

        d. If you have card and socket services installed, the installation
           program will attempt to detect an available interrupt, and select 
           one for you. 
           
        e. To configure your Ethernet Fax/Modem adapter with the current 
           configuration, select Install from the INSTALL menu.

        On the main screen, your selected configuration is displayed on the 
        box at the bottom of the screen. You may change your settings,
        from the pull down menus, at the top of the screen.

3.0     MENU SELECTION

        The pull-down menus can be manipulated using the arrow keys. Use the
        <ESC> key to go from a sub pull-down menu to the main pull-down menu. 
        Use the <ENTER> key to select the items in the menu.

        3.1     INSTALL

                Install    - Copies the necessary drivers to your target 
                             directory, and modifies your config.sys and 
                             autoexec.bat, if necessary.

                About      - Copyright and Version number.        
                
                Target Dir - Target directory. Default is C:\NETWORK. 
                
                Dos Shell  - Shell out to DOS. Type exit to return to the
                             installation program.

                Exit       - Returns you to the DOS prompt.

        3.2     NETWORK_OS

                Netware V3.X/4.X Workstation 
                           - Installs the ODI drivers necessary to log in to 
                             a Novell Netware server. You must select at least 
                             one frame, for the network to function properly. 
                             If you are unsure which FRAME your server is 
                             using, please contact your system administrator. 
                             (By default, all FRAMES are selected)

               Windows for Workgroups 3.11
                          -  Installs the NDIS drivers necessary to run the 
                             Windows for Workgroups 3.11 network.
               
               To install for other network operating systems, please consult 
               your Network Operating System manual.

        3.3    MEMBASE

               This is a memory region, used by the ethernet adapter. A 32K 
               region, starting from the selected MemBAse will be excluded 
               in your EMM386.EXE line, (Default is 0xD4000)

        3.4    I/O BASE

               This is the I/O Port address, (Default is 0x300)

        3.5    LAN_IRQ

               If card and socket services is installed, a list of suggested 
               interrupts will be dispayed at the bottom of the interrupt 
               list. You may use this as a guide to select a suitable 
               interrupt. The first available interrupt in the list will be 
               selected, by default.  
               
        3.6    COMPORT

               When selecting interrupts for COMPORTS, there are a few rules 
               to follow :

               * COM2 can only be assigned to IRQ 3                

                 The install program will default to COM2 IRQ3, if it is 
                 available in your system.

               * You can only select a COMPORT IRQ that is less than your 
                 selected LAN_IRQ.
               
               You may use the list of suggested interrupts from the LAN_IRQ   
               menu as a guide for selecting interrupts for COM3 or COM4.
       
4.0     LOGGING IN TO YOUR NETWORK

        a. After the installation is completed, you may log in to your Novell
           server by rebooting and typing

           CD C:\target dir <ENTER>
           STARTNET <ENTER>

           target dir is your specified target directory.

        b. If you selected Windows for Workgroups 3.11, you will be prompted
           to run the windows setup. To configure your Ethernet Fax/Modem card,
           select the PMX PCMCIA ETHERNET FAX/MODEM ADAPTER from 
           the list of network adapters. The network paramters will be 
           automatically configured with your selected values.

5.0     USING YOUR MODEM

        Before using your communication software, ensure that it is set to 
        the same COMPORT as specified in your net.cfg or protocol.ini.  
        
        Note :

        If you wish to use only the modem portion of your Ethernet Fax/Modem 
        card, follow the instructions below.

        1. Ensure that you have card and socket services installed in the 
           system.    
           
        2. Run ACTMODEM.COM C=n I=nn.

           USAGE: ACTMODEM [H|?] [C=n] [I=nn]
           
           Where
           H or ?  requests this menu
           C  specifies COM port (1,2,3,4)
           I  specifies interrupt request (IRQ) level
           n  is a decimal digit
           The C switch sets the base I/O address and IRQ level:
           C=1  sets I/O= 3F8, IRQ= 4
           C=2  sets I/O= 2F8, IRQ= 3
           C=3  sets I/O= 3E8, IRQ= 4
           C=4  sets I/O= 2E8, IRQ= 3
  
           The I switch may be used with the C switch to override the 
           IRQ value set by the C switch. Switches are not case sensitive.
  
           Defaults:  C=4

           eg. ACTMODEM.COM C=2 I=11

        3. Check to see that Windows is set to the same COM Interrupt as the 
           ACTMODEM.COM parameters. This can be done by clicking on Main -
           Control Panel - Ports , selecting the proper COM PORT and clicking
           on Settings - Advance.

        4. Run your communication software and set the COM PORT to match the
           'C=' parameter in the ACTMODEM.COM
