         :
        Device=d:\IBMCOM\MACS\AX8140.OS2
         :

      \IBMCOM\PROTOCOL.INI

 Install the NDIS driver for IBM LAN SERVER 2.0

    . Assuming that OS/2 2.0 is correctly installed and working properly,
      install the LAN SERVER. At this point, no network adapters must be
      installed in the computer.

    . Install LAN SERVER according to the IBM installation procedure.  When
      prompted for the adapter, select any of the adapters LAN SERVER
      supports. For example, "Western Digital EtherCard PLUS ...". Then,
      continue with the LAN SERVER installation.

    . After successfully installing LAN SERVER, shut down OS/2 for system
      configuration. Do not install any network adapters yet.  The OS/2
      system will boot up and bring up the LAN SERVER services. The system
      will then display error messages since the network adapter you
      selected is not installed. Ignore these messages and continue with
      the OS/2 booting procedure.

    . Insert the driver diskette in Drive A and copy the following files:

        COPY  AX8140.OS2 to C:\IBMCOM\MACS
        COPY  AX8140.NIF to C:\IBMCOM\MACS\AX8140.NIF

    . In the OS/2 Desktop group, run the OS/2 system editor.  You need
      to modify the following files:

        C:\CONFIG.SYS
        C:\IBMCOM\PROTOCOL.INI

      CONFIG.SYS Modifications:


        DEVICE=C:\IBMCOM\MACS\MACWD.OS2

        to

        DEVICE=C:\IBMCOM\MACS\AX8140.OS2


      PROTOCOL.INI Modifications:

        - Under the [IBMLXCFG] section, add the following line:

                AX8140_nif = AX8140.nif

        - Under the [NETBEUI_nif] section, change the following line:

                Bindings = MACWDMC_nif

                to

                Bindings = AX8140_nif

        - Under the MAC SECTION definitions, add the following section:

                [AX8140_nif]
                DriverName = AX8140$

    . After modifying the two files above, shut down OS/2, and turn the
      computer off.

    . Install the AX8140.

    . Turn on the system to start OS/2.

      After starting OS/2, LAN SERVER services can now successfully start
      without causing any errors.


 Install the NDIS driver for IBM Communication Manager 1.0

    . Install IBM Communication Manager

    . Copy the AX8140.OS2 and AX8140.NIF files in the driver diskette
      to your C:\IBMCOM\MACS directory.

    . Select the PCI Ethernet Adapter and choose the appropriate
      protocols.

    . Check that the CONFIG.SYS file includes the following line:

           DEVICE = C:\IBMCOM\MACS\AX8140.OS2

    . Shut down your OS/2 system, and then reboot your PC.
