D.) Driver Installation for Microsoft Windows 3.x
-------------------------------------------------

Please refer to Item C.
In Step 2, mark "NetWare Client 32 for DOS" and "Client 32 for Windows",
and follow Step 3...8 to complete the installation.

E.) Driver Installation for Microsoft Windows 95
------------------------------------------------

The 32-bit PCI Series (Fast) Ethernet Adapters are based on the DEC chip DC21x40.
Thus the 21x40 driver supported by Win95 will work for these adapters. However, if you want
to run the 32-bit PCI Series (Fast) Ethernet driver, you should remove the adapter object
and driver from Win95 system before installing it.  No matter which driver you have
installed, the DEC DC21x4 based driver or 32-bit PCI Series (Fast) Ethernet
NDIS 2/3 driver, before installing the 32-bit PCI Series (Fast) Ethernet Adapter
Client 32 driver, you should take the following steps.

    E.1) Remove adapter object & driver for DECchip 21140
	 or 32-bit PCI Series (Fast) Ethernet Adapter **
	 ================================================
	 1.> Click the "My Computer" icon.
	 2.> Click the "Control Panel" icon in My Computer window.
	 3.> Double-click the "System" icon in the Control Panel window.
	 4.> Click the "Network adapter" icon in the System window.
	 5.> Click on:

	     "PCI Fast Ethernet DECchip 21140 Based Adapter" or
	     "32-bit 10/100M (-NWAY) PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter"

	     in the System window.

	 6.> Click <Remove> button, and press <OK>.
	 7.> Close the dialog windows.


	 **Note: If you NEVER plugged any 32-bit PCI Series (Fast) Ethernet
		 adapter into your PC, Procedure E.1 is not necessary.	Just start
		 from Procedure E.2.

    E.2) Install the Client 32 driver installation information file
	 ==========================================================
	 8.> Switch to MS-DOS Command Prompt.
	 9.> Insert the 32-bit PCI Series (Fast) Ethernet Driver Diskette into
	     the floppy drive (A: or B:).
	10.> Type the following DOS commands:

	     CD \WINDOWS\INF
	     RENAME NETPCI.INF *.IN_
	     RENAME ETHPCI.INF *.IN_
	     COPY A:\LANDRV32\PCIC32.INF
	     EXIT

	     Notice: You also can use the SetWin95.bat file located in the
		     \LANDRV32 directory.  You can execute the following program
		     to install the Client 32 driver installation information file.

		     C:\>A:\LANDRV32\SETWIN95 C:\<Win 95 system directory>

	11.> Reboot your machine.



    E.3) Install Client 32 Driver in Windows 95
	 ======================================

	12.> Plug 32-bit PCI Series (Fast) Ethernet adapter into one of the Master
	     PCI slots of your PCI platform.
	13.> Power on your machine and boot from Windows 95.
	14.> Windows 95 will prompt you with the PCI Ethernet Controller in New
	     Hardware Found dialog box.
	15.> Then the screen displays either "32-bit 10/100M (-NWAY) PCI Fast
	     Ethernet Adapter" in New Hardware Found dialog box.

	16.> Follow screen instructions to complete installation.

	     Note: Windows 95 will ask you to key in the proper path.
		   Use any of the following:

		a.> NetWare Client 32 for Windows 95 Disk
		b.> 32-bit PCI Series (Fast) Ethernet Driver Diskette
		    --> Insert 32-bit PCI Series (Fast) Ethernet Driver Diskette,
		    Then assign the path to A:\LANDRV32 or B:\LANDRV32
		c.> Windows 95 CD-ROM


F.) Parameters Description for PCIC32.LAN
-----------------------------------------
	The following parameters are used in PCIC32.LAN.

    1.> SLOT:	  Specify which adapter is enabled when multiple 32-bit
		  PCI Series (Fast) Ethernet Adapters are found in your
		  computer.  The SLOT keyword is an index value corresponding
		  to PCI BIOS.	The value of SLOT is different from one machine
		  to the other.

		  Ex: LOAD PCIC32 SLOT=10001 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.2
		      LOAD PCIC32 SLOT=10004 FRAME=ETHERNET_II

    2.> FRAME	: Specify which frame type is used by the driver.  Accepted
		  values are Ethernet_802.2, Ethernet_802.3, Ethernet_II and
		  Ethernet_SNAP.  Multiple frame types can be enabled by the
		  driver by loading the same driver with different FRAME types.

		  Ex: LOAD PCIC32 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.2
		      LOAD PCIC32 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.3
		      LOAD PCIC32 FRAME=ETHERNET_II
		      LOAD PCIC32 FRAME=ETHERNET_SNAP

    3.> NODE	: Use a different address to replace the node address burned
		  in EEPROM.

		  Ex: LOAD PCIC32 NODE=0200E8001122

    4.> Attachment: Specify the connection type of 32-bit PCI Series (Fast)
	Ethernet adapter.

	Default value is AUTODETECT.

       Driver Parameters     Description
       =================     ====================================================
       AUTODETECT	     (Autodetect)
			     for 10/100M (NWAY) PCI Adapter, run-time auto-sense
			     the connection type and line speed.

       TP		     (Twisted Pair)
			     Connector type is RJ-45.
			     10BASE-T ==> Line_Speed=10
			     100BASE-TX ==> Line_Speed=100


       BNC		     (Thick wire)
			     Connector is BNC (10BASE2).
			     10/100M (-NWAY) Adapter does not support
			     this parameter.


       AUI		     (AUI)
			     Connector is AUI (10BASE5).
			     Currently, 32-bit PCI Series (Fast)
			     Ethernet boards do not support this connector.

      TP_FULL_DUPLEX	     (Twisted Pair - Full Duplex)
			     Connector is RJ-45 in full-duplex mode.
			     The throughput is 20Mbps for 10BASET and
			     200Mbps for 100BASE-Tx.

      TP_NO_LINK_TEST	     (Twisted Pair with link test disabled)
			     Connector is RJ-45, but the link test function of
			     transceiver is disabled. This function should be
			     enabled if your repeater does not support link
			     test function.

		  Ex: LOAD PCIC32 TP
		      LOAD PCIC32 TP LINE_SPEED=100
		      LOAD PCIC32 BNC
		      LOAD PCIC32 AUTODETECT
		      LOAD PCIC32 TP_FULL_DUPLEX LINE_SPEED=100

    5.> LINE_SPEED: (Line_Speed)
		    Specify the speed that your network adapter.
		    Acceptable values are 10 and 100.  No default value is
		    assigned.

    6.> TURBO	  : (Turbo mode)
		    Enhance the performance if your PCI platform uses SATURN
		    CDC or PCMC chip.

    7.> SNOOZE	  : (Snooze mode)
		    With 10/100M (-NWAY) PCI Adapter's new NIC, Snooze mode can reduce
		    power consumption.	The NIC can stop most of its internal clock
		    operation unless network activity is detected.
		    This is not a default function of PCIC32.LAN.


    8.> CAPTURE_EFFECT: (Enable this function to solve the Capture Effect problem.)
		    The driver offers a vendor supported function to avoid
		    starvation when multiple collisions occur on the network line.
		    But this function is not a standard part of the Ethernet SPEC.
		    This parameter lets you enable the function to prevent
		    the Capture Effect problem.
