4. Next, you'll be prompted to choose a transport option.  Select the
   "DECNET transport option" and press <Enter> to proceed.

5. Your system will prompt you to insert the DNET TRNSPRT diskette#1 into your
   floppy drive. Follow screen instructions.

6. Then you'll be prompted to specify a destination drive.  Type C: or D:

7. When asked if you are creating an initial workstation diskette, select "NO."

8. Type in the node name and address (i.e., node number) in the corresponding
   field. Then press <Enter>.

9. Type in the server node name and address (i.e., node number) in the
   corresponding field. Then press <Enter>.

10. When asked to "Select the network adapter type:" choose Ethernet.

11. When prompted to "Select the network adapter:" choose "Other NDIS."

12. Indicate the subdirectory location of your NDIS driver in the 32-bit PCI
     Series (Fast) Ethernet Driver Diskette. For example, type the following:

	 A:\NDIS\DOS\ETHPCI.DOS
    or
	 A:\MSLANMAN.DOS\DRIVERS\ETHERNET\ETH_32\ETHPCI.DOS

13. When prompted, indicate the subdirectory location of the PROTOCOL.INI file
    in the 32-bit PCI Series (Fast) Ethernet Driver Diskette.  For example, type
    the following:

	 A:\NDIS\DOS\
    or
	 A:\MSLANMAN.DOS\DRIVERS\ETHERNETN\ETH_32\

14. Select "WRITE KEY DISK" to save the settings that you have chosen.  When
    prompted to copy the ETHPCI.DOS and PROTOCOL.INI files, insert the 32-bit
    PCI Series (Fast) Ethernet Driver Diskette into your floppy drive.

15. Follow screen instructions to complete the installation.

16. From the Configuration screen, press F10 to exit to C:\.

17. Edit the PROTOCOL.INI file from the DECNET subdirectory.  Remove the
    semicolon (;) from the statement "NI_IRQ = 5" under the [DATALINK] section.

18. Make sure that the IRQ value used in ETHPCI.DOS driver,
    matches the NI_IRQ value in the [DATALINK] statement.
