E. Driver Installation for Microsoft Windows 95
-----------------------------------------------
  If you have installed the Microsoft Client in your Windows 95 system, you
  should remove the adapter object and NDIS3 driver of the 
  PCI 10/100 Fast Eternet Adapter from the Windows 95 system and delete
  C:\WINDOWS\INF\FASTNIC.INF file.

  Install Novell NetWare Client 32 for Windows 95
  ===============================================
   1. Plug PCI 10/100 adapter into one of the Master PCI slots of your PC.

   2. Turn the PC power ON and then boot from Windows 95.

   3. Windows 95 will prompt "PCI Ethernet Controller" in "New Hardware 
      Found" dialog box. Please click on "Cancel" and do not install driver
      now.

   4. In WIN95 environment, run "SETUP.EXE" in the \PRODUCTS\WIN95\IBM_ENU 
      directory of Netware 4.11 CD. Follow the installation steps of Novell 
      NetWare Client 32.

   5. In "Select Device" window, please select "[detected net drivers]" and
      click on "OK" button to follow the installation steps of Client 32.
      (Please do not click "Have Disk..." to install adapter driver now.)

   6. After following the instructions to complete the Client32 for WIN95
      software installation, reboot your machine.

  Install Driver After Novell NetWare Client 32 for Windows 95 is Installed
  =========================================================================
   1. Make sure Novell NetWare Client 32 is installed OK and then install
      PCI 10/100 Fast Ethernet Adapter Driver again. When the PC is powered
      on, Windows 95 will prompt "PCI Ethernet Controller" in "New Hardware
      Found" dialog box. (If your adapter is not detected by Windows 95, 
      refer to TroubleShooting below.)

   2. Remove the PCI 10/100 adapter Driver Diskette in your floppy drive.
      Click on "Next" button and do not let WIN95 search adapter driver.

   3. Insert the PCI 10/100 adapter Driver Diskette in your floppy drive.
      Click "Other Locations" and type "A:\NETWARE", then click "OK" button.
      The message "PCI 10/100 Fast Ethernet Adapter for Novell Netware 
      Client 32" will appear.

   4. After the "Finish" button is clicked, Windows starts to copy files 
      from Windows 95 CD-ROM to your hard disk. When the "Copying Files" 
      dialogue shows up to request the directory for the "FASTNIC.LAN" file,
      type "A:\NETWARE" and click on the "OK" button.

   5. Follow the screen prompt to insert "NetWare Client 32 for Windows 95"
      disk and click the OK button in the "Insert Disk" dialog box.

   6. Otherwise enter the full pathname (ex. D:\PRODUCTS\WIN95\IBM_ENU) of
      the "NetWare Client 32 for Windows95" installation files in the
      "Copying Files....." dialog box, then click the OK button.

   7. Follow the screen's prompt to insert the "Windows 95 CD-ROM" and click
      the OK button in the "Insert Disk" dialog box.

   8. Otherwise enter the full pathname of the "Windows 95 CD-ROM" 
      installation files in the "Copying Files..." dialog box, then click 
      the OK button.

   9. Windows 95 will copy the driver (FASTNIC.LAN) from A:\NETWARE to
      C:\NOVELL\CLIENT32 directory.

  10. Remove the PCI 10/100 adapter Driver Diskette from your floppy drive.

  11. Restart your computer to initialize the network function.

  ** NOTE **
   - C:\NOVELL is the directory where your Novell Client 32 files are 
     located.
   - C:\WINDOWS is the directory where your Windows 95 O.S. is located.
   - Do not remove "Novell ODINSUP" from the Network control panel. Removing
     Novell ODINSUP also removes NetWare Client 32 for Windows 95 if there
     is only one adapter in use.

  TroubleShooting in Windows 95
  =============================
   If your adapter is not detected by Windows 95 "New Hardware Found", your
   adapter may be already REGISTERED. Therefore, you have to remove the
   REGISTERED before you install adapter driver again.

   Method:
    1. Click "Network" icon in the "Control Panel" box to make sure your
       adapter driver not installed. If your adapter driver was installed,
       remove it.
    2. Select "Start" button (left-down corner) and select "Run" item.
       Type REGEDIT, the registry edidor utility , then click "OK" button to
       execute it.
    3. In the Registry Editor dialogue, double-click "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" 
       item, double-click "Enum", then double-click PCI item. Select the
       "VEN_1317&DEV_0981", then delete it. Close Register Editor dialogue.
    4. Reboot Windows 95 again to carefully follow the installtion 
       procedures above again.


F. Parameter Description for FastNIC.LAN
----------------------------------------
  The following parameters are used in FastNIC.LAN.

  1. SLOT:	specifies which adapter is enabled when multiple FastNIC
		adapters are found in your computer.

		Ex: LOAD FastNIC SLOT=1 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.2
		    LOAD FastNIC SLOT=1 FRAME=ETHERNET_II

  2. FRAME:	specifies which frame type is used by the driver. Accepted
		values are Ethernet_802.2, Ethernet_802.3, Ethernet_II and
		Ethernet_SNAP.  Multiple frame types can be enabled by the
		driver by loading the same driver with different FRAME types

		Ex: LOAD FastNIC FRAME=ETHERNET_802.2
		    LOAD FastNIC FRAME=ETHERNET_802.3
		    LOAD FastNIC FRAME=ETHERNET_II
		    LOAD FastNIC FRAME=ETHERNET_SNAP

  3. NODE:	Use a different address to replace the node address burned
		in EEPROM.

		Ex: LOAD FastNIC NODE=0200E8001122

  4. There are five parameters provided for specifying adapter's speed and
     duplex mode : AUTO, 10-HD, 10-FD, 100-HD and 100-FD.

		Ex: LOAD FastNIC 100-HD FRAME=Ethernet_802.2 NAME=LAN_A
		    BIND IPX TO LAN_A NET=11
