         listed above under STARTNET.BAT

      3. Edit the NET.CFG file that you copied over. Edit the file per your
         requirements (see examples above).  If there are two frame types
         listed, whichever frame type is listed first, that is the one that
         the  driver will load.  See above for examples.  The NET.CFG file
         should be in the same directory with the LSL.COM file.
