D. NetWare DOS ODI Workstation Driver Installation
==================================================
This section describes the procedure to install
the NetWare workstation driver for your adapter.

Requirements:
-------------
      32-bit PCI Series (Fast) Ethernet Driver Diskette (PCIMLID.COM)
      Driver Location: \NetWare\DOSODI

Installation Procedure:
-----------------------
Before starting installation, make sure your adapter is properly installed and configured.
Also be sure the NetWare operating system is properly installed.

1. Run the following commands in the order given below and
   press <Enter>:

   lsl
   pcimlid
   ipxodi
   netx (or vlm)

2. You can then log into your network.



E. Installation Notes
=====================

1. When loading PCI40.LAN, it will check whether MSM and
   ETHERTSM have been loaded. If not, it  will	load  them
   automatically.  After PCI40.LAN is loaded, if you type "MODULES"
   command under DOS prompt, you will see that two extra
   modules, namely, MSM.NLM and ETHERTSM.NLM are also loaded.

2. The default frame type for the PCI40.LAN binding is
   Ethernet_802.2, not Ethernet_802.3.	This is the difference between
   V3.11 and V4.X drivers.

   The PCI40.LAN also supports the NetWare V3.11 environment.
   However, it requires loading of some patch files of NLMs before loading it.

3. Remember to specify LASTDRIVE=Z in the CONFIG.SYS file.

4. Edit the NET.CFG if you want to change some parameters.

   For example, if you're using a NetWare 3.11 workstation and need
   to log into a NetWare v4.X server. The default frame type of NetWare 3.11
   is Ethernet 802.3, while that of NetWare v4.X  is Ethernet 802.2. Before
   you can log into the NetWare v4.X , make sure a protocol binding for
   Ethernet 802.3 is included in the system's NET.CFG file.

   This is normally included in the [MLID] section. A sample
   NET.CFG file is given below:

   LINK DRIVER PCIMLID
