       searched first by WIN95 system, please run PUTINF.BAT first in
       Windows95 DOS prompt.

      PUTINF.BAT will to do below step 1-6 procedure.

       Ex. > PUTINF.bat C:\WINDOWS      ; C:\WINDOWS is Windows 95
                                        ; default directory.

        1. In Windows 95, go to the \Windows\INF\ directory.

        2. Remove the old NETDLPCI.INF file (if it exists).

        3. Create a temporary directory and copy all the files from the
           \Windows\INF\ directory to this temporary directory.

        4. Delete all the files (*.INF) in the \Windows\INF\ directory.

        5. Copy the new NETINF.INF into \Windows\INF\NETDLPCI.INF

        6. Now copy all the files back from the temporary directory you

      boot up process and your network adapter should work normally.

 Trouble Shooting

      Everything is OK in Device Manager, but network adapter still
       does't function properly. Please make sure that your Computer
       name is different from others in the same network.  You can change
       your Computer name in

       "My Computer" -> "Control Panel" -> "Network" -> "Identification"

      Everything appears to be OK but network adapter still doesn't
       function properly. Please make sure that the adapter is properly
       connected to a network device (ex: HUB) and the "connection type"
       for this adapter is set to "AutoSense" or the correct media type.
       You can check it in

       "My Computer" -> "Control Panel" -> "Network" -> "Properties"
       icons. Select "Advanced" item.

 Driver keywords

      Open "My Computer" -> "Control Pannel" -> "Network" ->
       Double click "D-Link DFE-500TX PCI ..", Select "Advanced" item.

       Connection Type      Specify the connection type for the adapter.
                            Default: AutoSense

       Network Address      You can set the Ethernet address for your
                            adapter. It is not recommended to use this
                            keyword. As you know two or more adapter in
                            the same network with same Ethernet address
                            will cause a little problem.

                            When using this keyword you need to input
                            exactly 6 bytes of Ethernet address using
                            one of the following format:


                            Default: read address from adapter ROM.
