NDIS Driver Installation on SUN PC-NFS
1. Edit the CONFIG.SYS file to include the following command line, and 
   reboot the PC:

2. Insert the PC-NFS Installation diskette into the PC's floppy drive.
   Type the following at the DOS prompt and press <Enter> to bring up 
   the PC-NFS installation screen:

          INSTALL      <Enter>

3. Follow screen prompts to configure your screen display. For example, 
   press <M> to choose mono display, or press <C> to choose color display, 
   or press <ESC> to cancel the installation.

4. When the "Install the Basic PC-NFS files" window appears onscreen, select
   "Install Full PC-NFS" from the choice list.

5. "Specify the target PC-NFS installation directory," by typing the 
   appropriate path in the field provided. For example, C:\NFS. Then press 
   <Enter> to continue.

6. Carefully read and respond to each prompt that appears on screen, 
   indicating suitable selections for your system.

7. When you reach the prompt that reads, "Configure an Ethernet network 
   connection", choose "Ethernet" from the choice list. Then press <Enter>
   to confirm your choice.

8. Choose the network adapter you will use. Select "NDIS" from the list 
   shown on screen.  Then press <Enter> to confirm your choice.

9. Follow screen instructions to complete the process. You will be prompted
   to insert some PC-NFS distribution diskettes.  And during the process, 
   files from the diskettes will be copied onto your hard disk drive.

10. When prompted to update your AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS files, press 

11. Your system will prompt you when the installation process is complete.
    It will display the following message,

          "PC-NFS installation is complete."

12. The system will create two subdirectories in the destination drive, 
    namely, \LANMAN and \NFS.

13. Create the NETWORK.BAT, DRIVES,BAT and HOSTS files.  Specify the PC 
    name, IP address, server name and server IP address in these files.
    See the section on Sample Configuration Files for examples.

14. Copy the NETWORK.BAT, DRIVES.BAT and HOSTS files into the \NFS directory
    of your server.

15. Copy the FastNIC.DOS file from the \MSLANMAN.DOS\DRIVERS\FastNIC\FastNIC
    of your Driver Diskette to the newly created subdirectory (\LANMAN)
    on  your destination drive.

    Note: The FastNIC.DOS file is also found in the \NDIS\DOS directory of
          your Driver Diskette.

16. Edit the CONFIG.SYS file using a text editor. Add the following command
    line before the NFS_NDIS driver specification:


17. Edit the PROTOCOL.INI file in the \LANMAN directory, replacing the

    a. Replace the section name [your-mac-module] with [FastNIC]
    b. Replace the command line "drivername = YOURMAC$" with
       "drivername = FastNIC$"
    c. Replace the command line "bindings = YOUR-MAC-MODULE"
       with "bindings = FastNIC"
    d. Assign the media type and line speed as used in sample
       PROTOCOL.INI file.

18. Reboot your computer. Then start the application you need.
    For example:

    a. Run NFSCONF.EXE to configure the system, such as
       mounting a virtual drive E:
    b. Run TELNET.EXE to do terminal emulation
