Sample PROTOCOL.INI Files and Parameters

  DriverName = FSTNIC$
; Slot = 1            ;; {1-4}

There are several parameters included in the ETHPCI_NIF section of the
PROTOCOL.INI file. However, the only parameter that you should specify
is the "drivername."

If you change other parameter settings, such as the SIA_MODE, make sure
that it matches the hardware settings.  Otherwise, the adapter may fail.

If you don't specify these settings, Fast Ethernet Controller Provider's 
NDIS 2 driver will automatically detect them.

SLOT	  Specifies which network adapter is used by the driver. If you have 
	  only one Fast Ethernet Controller Provider's FastNIC PCI Adapter 
	  in your machine, this parameter is unnecessary!  For two or more 
	  Fast Ethernet Controller Provider's PCI LAN cards, this parameter
	  is required and cannot be omitted from PROTOCOL.INI. For the first
	  FastNIC adapter, Slot=1, and the second one, Slot=2, third, Slot=3
	  ,..., etc.

SIA_MODE  Specifies the medium type used by the adapter.
	  Acceptable values for this parameter are AUTODETECT, UTP, UTP_FD
	  ,UTP_100 and UTP_100FD. If you didn't specify this settings it
	  would be AUTODETECT for FastNIC.

            UTP:	10BaseT, UTP_100: Fast Ethernet (100BaseTx)
            UTP_FD: 	10BaseT with Full_Duplex
            UTP_100FD:	100BaseTx with Full_Duplex

            Default:	AUTODETECT
