             Installation the Netware DOS ODI ( Client 16 ) Driver

    There are two methods, MANUAL installation (for NW 3.11 wks) and
    Novell Client install (for NW 3.12 & 4.x)

I.  Novell Client Installation

    . Run the NetWare Client Install
        ( Get the Client disks from the network administrator )

    . In the "Select a driver for your network board" item.

        From the driver list, select "Other Drivers".

        Go to the Insert the Driver Disk dialog box and specify the path where
        the ODI driver and INS files reside.

        For example:  C:\CLIENT16

        Press Enter and select the target ODI driver.

        Specify the driver's optional settings.

    . Answer the other items for your need

    . Press F10 to save to new configuration.

    . Highlight "Install press here" and press <Enter> to install.

        The program copies the necessary files for NetWare Client.
        Continue the installation procedure to completion. Upon completion,
        a NET.CFG file will be created in your DOS directory.
        Typically, this file contains the following lines:

        Link Driver AX88140
              FRAME Ethernet_802.3
              FRAME Ethernet_802.2

        An ordinary startnet.bat looks like the following:

        SET NWLANGUAGE=ENGLISH -- Set NetWare 4.X to English language
        LSL                    -- Link Support Layer Module provided by Novell

    . Run STARTNET to access the Novell network.

II. Manual Installation

    . Copy the AX88140.COM file from this diskette into the Netware client
      directory containing Novell's LSL.COM, IPXODI.COM and NETx.COM files.

    . Follow Novell's instructions on using ODI programs. You can substitute
      the AX88140.COM whenever a reference is made to the Hardware Specific
