1   INSTALLATION
    1.  Copy the driver TRIN4X.DSK to the subdirectory which holds the file 
        SERVER.EXE.
    2.  Boot up the file server.
    3.  On the system console and on the command prompt state, type in:
        load TRIN4X.DSK <Enter>

    You can also include the above command line into the start up file
    STARTUP.NCF to load the driver automatically.

    For disk operation or CD-ROM operation, please refer to the corresponding
    NOVELL system user manual.  NOVELL has a command "cd help" which describe
    all features for CD-ROM.

2   TROUBLESHOOTING
2.1 Overriding Drive Capabilities
    If the NOVELL does not work properly after the installation, it could be
    that the device drives report wrong capabilities. The user can use
    parameters to override the capabilities reported by the connected device
    drives.

    The user can append parameters with the following format
        [/V] [/drive [dma=dmamode|pio=piomode] [!lba] [!ms]]
    to "load  TRINxxx".
    Where
    V       indicates to display verbose information.
    drive   specifies which drive to override on. It can be:
                PM  primary/master
                PS  primary/slave
                SM  secondary/master
                SS  secondary/slave
    dmamode specifies the overriding DMA mode. It can be:
                SW2 single word DMA mode 2
                MW1 multi-word DMA mode 1
                MW2 multi-word DMA mode 2
                U0  ultra DMA mode 0
                U1  ultra DMA mode 1
                U2  ultra DMA mode 2
                NO  not use DMA operation. The PIO will be used.
    piomode specifies the overriding PIO mode. It can be:
                0   PIO mode 0
                1   PIO mode 1
                2   PIO mode 2
                3   PIO mode 3
                4   PIO mode 4
            If the pio_mode is specified, the driver will only use PIO
            operation on the corresponding drive.
    !lba    indicates not to use LBA mode.
    !ms     indicates not to use multi-sectors commands.
