Filename	Description
------------------------------------------------------
LSL.COM 	This file implements the Link Support
		Layer for DOS ODI workstations
		and is the program that is generally
		loaded first when booting. The Link
		Support Layer file enables the
		workstation to communicate over
		several protocols.

IPXODI.COM	This is Novell's protocol stack for
		DOS ODI workstations. It performs
		the same functions as the IPX.COM, which
		is used for DOS workstations. However
		it is optional and is loaded after the
		LAN driver. Other protocols can be loaded
		in its place or with it. This is one
		of the key features of the ODI
		environment.

NETX.COM	NetWare Network program.
		--------------------------------------
		If you use		  You Need
		--------------------------------------
		Conventional memory	  NETx.COM

		Expanded memory 	  EMSNETx.EXE
		(LIM 4.0 EMS Compatible)

		Extended memory 	  XMSNETx.EXE
		(XMS 2.0 compatible)
		---------------------------------------

NETBIOS.EXE	The Netbios emulation program
		(INT 5CH interface) allows you to
		run Netbios  application programs
		based  on  the NETBIOS.EXE
		interface. The running sequence is:

		a. IPX shell driver
		   IPX.COM
		   NETBIOS.EXE	---> netbios emulation
		   ...		     interface

		b. DOS ODI driver
		   LSL.COM
		   PCIMLID.COM	 ---> 32-bit PCI Series (Fast) Ethernet Adapter

RXMONSTK.COM	RXMONSTK.COM is Receive Monitor Utility for
		Monitor Type Applications (Such as Lan Analyzer)

		If the monitor type applications you are using
		seems to stop receiving network packets when you
		install a new LAN driver on your workstation,
		load the RXMONSTK.COM file.

		Load the RXMONSTK.COM file after the LSL.COM driver but
		before the LAN driver. The RXMONSTK.COM operates as a TSR
		and requires 2684 bytes of memory. You can load only one
		LAN driver when using the RxMonStk.

		The running sequence is:

		   LSL.COM
		   RXMONSTK.COM
		   PCIMLID.COM	 --->  32-bit PCI Series (Fast) Ethernet Adapter
