Installing driver on Microsoft Windows NT
-----------------------------------------

   1)  Choose the Control Panel icon.

   2)  In the Control Panel window, choose the Network icon.

   3)  In the Network Settings dialog box, choose the Add Adapter button.
       Then the Add Network Adapter dialog box appears.

   4)  In the list of network cards, select "<other> Requires disk from
       manufacturer", and then press <Enter>.

   5)  Insert this driver disk in the floppy diskette drive (A:\),
       and then click <OK>.

   6)  In the Select OEM Option dialog box, you will see the following

            10/100M(-NWAY) PCI Ethernet Adapter

   7)  When the 10/100M(-NWAY) PCI Ethernet Adapter Setup dialog box appears,
       specify the "Connection Type" of the adapter plugged in your PC.
       The SETUP program does not support adapter detection. Make sure these settings match
       your adapter's configurations.  Otherwise network function can not
       be activated.



       The connection types for 10/100M (NWAY) PCI Ethernet Adapter are:
       ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
        AutoSense           Performs automatic media detection during driver initialization

        Twisted Pair        RJ-45 connector
        (10BASE-T)          Line speed: 10 Megabits per second (Mbps)

        Twisted Pair        RJ-45 connector
        (10BASE-T)          Communication in full-duplex mode,
        Full_Duplex         Line speed: 20Mbps

        Twisted Pair        RJ-45 connector
        (100BASE-TX)        Line speed: 100 Mbps

        Twisted Pair        RJ-45 connector
        (100BASE-TX)        Communication in full-duplex mode,
        Full_Duplex         Line speed: 200Mbps


   8) After successful installation, the "Installed Adapter Cards" menu shows you,
      "10/100M(-NWAY) PCI Ethernet Adapter Fast Ethernet Adapter" and "32-bit PCI Series
      (Fast) Ethernet Adapter Driver" appears in the "Installed Network Software" menu.

   9) Now, the SETUP program has already copied the ETHPCI.SY_ and the OEMSETUP.INF from
      the Driver Diskette (A:\) to C:\<NT system directory>\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS and
      C:\<NT system directory>\SYSTEM32 respectively. If you need to re-install the driver,
      you do not need to install from the driver diskette.

  10) Click on the "Bindings" option under Network Setting dialog box to bind the adapter
      to the transport drivers.
