[2]. Installation for DOS ODI Driver

     1. For those who installed EMM386.EXE in your config.sys, please exclude
        memory address D400-D7FF from your system. PCMCIA Ethernet card enabler
        program will use this space to read Ethernet ID and CIS from on-board
        flash memory.
        [Example]
                DEVICE=EMM386.EXE NOEMS X=D400-D7FF
                                or
                DEVICE=EMM386.EXE NOEMS X=D000-DFFF

     2. User need to add "LASTDRIVE=[Device Name]" in the Config.sys file,
        then reboot Notebook. Example, if you want to login to Device "N",
        the string is "LASTDRIVE=M".

     3. Enable the FastEthernet PC Card
        The EN100.EXE is a PCMCIA controller enabling program. This enable
        program only need for DOS and Windows 3.1 system. You don't need
        installed the Socket and Card service in your Notebook before
        executing the enabler.
        In DOS command, go to "\ODI", then type "EN100 [/IRQ:x][/IOP:xxx]"
        * IRQ - system interrupt number required for the FastEthernet card.
        * IOP - card's I/O port address assignment in HEX format.
        The default syntax is "EN100 /IRQ:5 /IOP:300".

     4. Getting Started the Novell DOS ODI Driver:
        This directory "\ODI" contains FastEthernet DOS ODI driver.
        You need the following files to install DOS ODI DRIVER.
        a. LSL.COM: supplied by Novell
        b. LNAX100.COM: DOS ODI driver, supplied by card manufacturer
        c. IPXODI.COM: supplied by Novell
        d. NETX.EXE: supplied by Novell
        e. NET.CFG: optional configuration file

        Type "STARTNET" at the DOS prompt will execute the files above,
        then you can login to the file server.

[3]. Installation for CLIENT32 Driver
     1. If you have completed installed the Netware Client 32 for DOS, all
        you have to do is to modify STARTNET.BAT.  Please see the  sample
        STARTNET.BAT above. If not, Please follow the next step 2 - step 7.

     2. Run INSTALL.EXE from Netware Client 32 for DOS diskette 1 (or from
        Netware 4.11 CD).  When	the  product  manual  appears,	mark the
        "Netware Client 32 for DOS" item, then press <Enter>.

     3. Select "OTHER DRIVERS" item from "32-bit Network Board Drivers" menu,
        then press <Enter>.

     4. Insert  LNAX100 Driver Diskette, then specify the driver path
        A: or B:

     5. Select "10/100 PCMCIA Ethernet adapter",
        then press <Enter>.

     6. Following instructions to complete the Client32 for DOS software
        installation.

     7. Reboot your machine.


     Configuring LAN Adapter's Media Type:
    ---------------------------------
	The keyword "NWAY" is provided for LAN adapter to auto detect 
        the speed and the duplex mode.
        For example:
        LOAD C:\NOVELL\CLIENT32\LNAX100.LAN NWAY

	The keyword "S100" is provided for user to force the media to
        100BASE-TX HALF DUPLEX mode.
        For example:
        LOAD C:\NOVELL\CLIENT32\LNAX100.LAN S100

	The keyword "S10" is provided for user to force the media to
        10BASE-T HALF DUPLEX mode.
        For example:
        LOAD C:\NOVELL\CLIENT32\LNAX100.LAN S10

    Installing Multiple LAN Adapters:
    ---------------------------------
	The keyword  "SLOT" is provided for multiple LAN adapters in a
	single server by the driver LNAX100.LAN. So, add "SLOT" in LOAD
	commands. For example:

	C:\NOVELL\CLIENT32\NIOS.EXE
	LOAD LSLC32.NLM
	LOAD CMSM.NLM
	LOAD ETHERTSM.NLM
	LOAD LNAX100 FRAME=Ethernet_802.2 SLOT=1
	LOAD LNAX100 FRAME=Ethernet_802.2 SLOT=2

    Sample Configuration Files:
    ---------------------------
      STARTNET.BAT (Client 32 for DOS will contain):

	  C:\NOVELL\CLIENT32\NIOS.EXE
	  LOAD C:\NOVELL\CLIENT32\LSLC32.NLM
	  LOAD C:\NOVELL\CLIENT32\CMSM.NLM
	  LOAD C:\NOVELL\CLIENT32\ETHERTSM.NLM
	  LOAD C:\NOVELL\CLIENT32\LNAX100.LAN FRAME=ETHERNET_802.2
	  LOAD C:\NOVELL\CLIENT32\LNAX100.LAN FRAME=Ethernet_802.3
	  LOAD C:\NOVELL\CLIENT32\LNAX100.LAN FRAME=Ethernet_II
	  LOAD C:\NOVELL\CLIENT32\LNAX100.LAN FRAME=Ethernet_SNAP

[4]. Installation for DOS Packet Driver

     1. For those who installed EMM386.EXE in your config.sys, please exclude
        memory address D400-D7FF from your system. PCMCIA Ethernet card enabler
        program will use this space to read Ethernet ID and CIS from on-board
        flash memory.
        [Example]
                DEVICE=EMM386.EXE NOEMS X=D400-D7FF
                                or
                DEVICE=EMM386.EXE NOEMS X=D000-DFFF

     2. Enable the FastEthernet PC Card
        The EN100.EXE is a PCMCIA controller enabling program. This enable
        program only need for DOS and Windows 3.1 system. You don't need
        installed the Socket and Card service in your Notebook before
        executing the enabler.
        In DOS command, go to "\ODI", then type "EN100 [/IRQ:x][/IOP:xxx]"
        * IRQ - system interrupt number required for the FastEthernet card.
        * IOP - card's I/O port address assignment in HEX format.
        The default syntax is "EN100 /IRQ:5 /IOP:300".

     3. Getting Started the DOS Packet Driver:
        To load the packet driver , type "lnax100 0x60".
        PCM100PD syntax: PCM100PD [options] <packet_int_no> <int_level> <io_addr>
        -i -- Force driver to report itself as IEEE 802.3 instead of Ethernet II.
        -d -- Delayed initialization.  Used for diskless booting
        -n -- NetWare conversion.  Converts 802.3 packets into 8137 packets
        -w -- Windows hack, obsoleted by winpkt
        -p -- Promiscuous mode disable
        -a -- Auto-Negotiation Mode
        -1 -- Line Speed 10M, Half Duplex Mode
        -2 -- Line Speed 10M, Full Duplex Mode
        -3 -- Line Speed 100M, Half Duplex Mode
        -4 -- Line Speed 100M, Full Duplex Mode
        -u -- Uninstall

        <PACKET_INT_NO>  This specifies the software interrupt (IRQ) where
                         you'll load the packet driver. It must be in the range
                         0x60 to 0x80.

        [IRQ]            This specifies the hardware interrupt (IRQ) where your
                         card will be indicated.

        [IO_BASE]        This specifies the I/O address .

        Example:
           The following command line loads the FastEthernet Packet Driver at
           software interrupt 60h, at I/O address 300, at hardware interrupt 5.
           "lnax100 0x60 0x5 0x300"

        Type "START" at the DOS will execute the en100.exe and pcm100pd.com,
        the IRQ and I/O address must be the same.


[5] Installation for Microsoft Windows 95/98/98_ME/2000

    1. Introduction
       Windows 95/98/98_ME/2000 provides a complete "Plug n' Play" System that will
