Novell NetWare V3.12 AND V4.10 Server Driver Installation
=========================================================

1.   Things You Need
     ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ
Before you start with the installation process make sure you have
the following :

     a)    Hardware Driver Disk
     b)    Novell NetWare Version 3.12 AND V4.10 System Diskette

2.   How To Install O.S. Driver
     ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ

     a)    Insert  the Accton EN1688 ISA Ethernet Adapter
       Driver Disk into  drive	A
       and check the contents of subdirectory  \NETWARE
       It should contain the following file :

	 NW41.LAN  ÄÄÄ	Novell NetWare V3.12 Server Driver

     b)    Copy  the contents of the Novell NetWare  386  Version
       3.11 System  Diskette  into your  NetWare  386  server
       station	hard  disk.   Please  refer  to  your  Novell
       NetWare 386 Installation Manual for details.

     c)    Copy  the  NW41.LAN file from the Hardware Driver Disk
       into the NetWare server station hard disk.

     d)    Run SERVER.EXE on the server station.  Several NetWare
       messages will be shown on-screen.

     e)    At the NetWare  prompt (indicated by a colon),  run
       the  driver  program, type the following line if using one adapter:

	: LOAD [d:]NW41 Frame=frame_type <Enter>


       or type the following line if more adapters are used:

	: LOAD [d:]NW41 SLOT=board# Frame=frame_type

	where board# starts 0 to 4, because number of adapters supported is 4
	(You can reference the autoexec.ncf example included in the floppy)

	  LOAD NW41 SLOT=0 FRAME=Ethernet_802.3
	  BIND IPX NW41
	  LOAD NW41 SLOT=0 FRAME=Ethernet_802.2
	  BIND IPX NW41
	  LOAD NW41 SLOT=0 FRAME=Ethernet_SNAP
	  BIND IPX NW41
	  LOAD NW41 SLOT=0 FRAME=Ethernet_II
	  BIND IPX NW41


     f)    Bind IPX with LAN driver, at the Netware server prompt,
       type :

	 :BIND IPX NW41 <Enter>

       After  pressing <Enter> the computer prompts  you  for
       the Network Number.  For details on how to assign this
       number,	please consult your NetWare 386  Installation
       Manual.

       If  problems  occur during the binding  process,  your
       screen  will prompt you with error  messages.   Please
       refer to your NetWare 386 manual for details on	these
       messages.   The LAN driver installation	is  completed
       when you see the following message on-screen :

       IPX  LAN  Protocol  bound to  NE Mode vx.xxRxx (yymmdd).

Novell NetWare V4.11 Server Driver Installation
===============================================

Requirements
------------
Make sure you have the following:

1. Driver Diskette

Installation Procedure
----------------------
1. Insert the Driver Diskette that comes with the package
   into drive A: and check the contents of the
   subdirectory \NETWARE. It should have
   the following files:

   NW41.LAN    ----> your Novell NetWare v4.x Server Driver
   NW41.LDI    ----> your Novell NetWare v4.x Server Driver
	     configuration file

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

  server name: LOAD INSTALL <Enter>

3. Follow screen instruction to complete the process. Respond
   to prompts displayed on the screen. Select the following
   items in the order given below. Press <Enter> to confirm
   each choice:

   Maintenance/Selective Install	<Enter>
   LAN Driver Options (Configure/Load/...)  <Enter>

4. Press the <Ins> key to insert other drivers you wish
   to install.

5. Press <F3> to display the driver loading path as follows:
   A:\NETWARE	       <Enter>

6. The NW41.LAN will appear as an item under the
   "Select a LAN Driver" menu. Choose the correct board number
   and Select it to load the driver and start the binding
   process. This will allow you to load and bind all 4 frame
   types supported by NetWare.

7. Next time you reboot your NetWare 4.11 server, do so by
   following steps 2 to 4 above.


Notes about the Novell v4.x and the v3.1x drivers
--------------------------------------------------
Installation Procedure
----------------------

1. The NetWare v4.x and v3.11 drivers have different
   architectures. When using NetWare v4.x, you should
   load the NBI.NLM ,MSM.NLM and ETHERTSM.NLM modules
   before loading server driver NW41.LAN.

2. NW41.LAN is your server driver for NetWare v4.x. When
   loading NW41.LAN, it will check whether or not
   these three modules (NBI.NLM ,MSM.NLM and ETHERTSM.NLM) have been
   loaded. If not, it will load them automatically.

3. After the NW41.LAN is loaded, type the "MODULES" command to
   view and confirm that the additional modules, MSM.NLM and
   ETHERTSM.NLM loaded.

4. The default frame type NW41.LAN binding for NetWare v4.x
   is Ethernet_802.2 and not Ethernet_802.3.

5. If you have any trouble to load NLM modules , Please refer autoexec.ncf
   in each directory.


Novell Netware Client for Windows NT v3.51 or later installation
================================================================

    supplies.

 4. During installation of the NT requestor,
    select "<Other> Requires disk from manufacturer".

 5. Enter the full path to the Accton EN1688 ISA Eethernet OEMSETUP.INF
    file. The path is: "A:\NETWARE\".

 6. Insert the Accton EN1688 ISA Eethernet support disk that
    shipped with your adapter and hit "continue".

    NOTE: The LAN Card driver may also appear on the Netware NT

	  in the list.	To insure of using the latest Accton Ethernet
	  driver, use the driver off the Accton Support Disk.

 7. Once the Netware Client for NT has read the OEMSETUP.INF file on the
    Accton Support Disk, the following line should appear  in
    the dialog box:

	 Accton EN1688 ISA Ethernet Adapter

    Select it.

 8. After more files are copied from the Accton Support Disk,
    a dialog box will appear asking to specify the PORT
    Enter the port address.
