Installation Procedure
----------------------
  Before you install the ODI OS/2 client driver, make sure that the
  adapter is properly installed. Similarly, make sure that your NetWare
  Requester for OS/2 is properly installed.

  Please refer to "Novell NetWare Requester for OS/2" documentation for
  a detailed Requester and Utilities installation guide.

  1. Copy the driver FASTNIC.SYS and NET.CFG C:\NETWARE directory, the Novell
     NetWare Requester for OS/2 subdirectory, from A:\NETWARE\OS2ODI if you 
     insert the driver diskette into the drive A:.

  2. Add 'DEVICE=C:\NETWARE\FASTNIC.SYS' or replace the old ODI driver
     with FASTNIC.SYS in the CONFIG.SYS file. For example,

     DEVICE=C:\NETWARE\LSL.SYS          ; NetWare OS/2 Requester supported
     DEVICE=C:\NETWARE\DDAEMON.SYS      ; NetWare OS/2 Requester supported
     DEVICE=C:\NETWARE\FASTNIC.SYS      ; FASTNIC ODI OS/2 Client Driver
     DEVICE=C:\NETWARE\IPX.SYS          ; NetWare OS/2 Requester supported

  3. Use a text editor to configure the NET.CFG in the C:\NETWARE directory.
     There is a text editor named E.EXE to use under OS/2 full screen.
     To edit the two files above, at the OS/2 prompt, type:

        E C:\CONFIG.SYS
     or
        E C:\NETWARE\NET.CFG

  4. Shutdown and reboot your system to get service of network.


Configuration Files
-------------------
  You can use the following parameters in NET.CFG to customize the FASTNIC
  ODI OS/2 client driver.
