INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS


OVERVIEW
This readme file contains detailed information about Novell NetWare
drivers for the COMPAQ 32-Bit DualSpeed Token Ring Controller.
There are two drivers included in the archive, one for NetWare 386
and another for NetWare Requester for OS/2. This file is divided
into two sections, one section describing the installation for
NetWare386 and another section for the OS/2 installation.

NETWARE 386 INSTALLATION

INTRODUCTION

This achive contains a Novell NetWare 386 device driver V1.03
(CPQTOKNW.LAN) for the COMPAQ 32-Bit DualSpeed Token Ring
Controller.

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

This device driver requires:
* Any COMPAQ EISA computer with the COMPAQ 32-bit DualSpeed
Token Ring controller installed. The system must have been
configured using the COMPAQ EISA Configuration Utility.

* NetWare 386 V3.x


INSTALLATION
To load the NetWare 386 driver, at the NetWare 386 prompt type:

LOAD CPQTOKNW

ENHANCEMENTS

Source Routing Support

The CPQTOKNW device driver, for Novell NetWare 386, now supports
source routing. To enable source routing, load the route loadable
module after loading the device driver for the controller,
as shown in the following example.

LOAD CPQTOKNW
LOAD ROUTE

For more information on source routing, refer to the Novell
NetWare 386 installation documentation or contact an
Authorized Novell NetWare Dealer.


ADVANCED TOPICS

SUPPORTING MULTIPLE TOKEN RING CONTROLLERS

When using multiple token ring controllers, the following
example illustrates the proper syntax of commands used to
load the device drivers. These commands should be added to
the AUTOEXEC.NCF file.

LOAD CPQTOKNW SLOT=2
BIND IPX TO CPQTOKNW [SLOT=2] NET=3
LOAD CPQTOKNW SLOT=3
BIND IPX TO CPQTOKNW [SLOT=3] NET=4

In this example there are 2 token ring controllers
installed, one in slot 2 and the other in slot 3. The board
in slot 2 is attached to a network with a network number of
3, and the board in slot 3 is attached to a network with a
network number of 4.


SUPPORTING LARGER PACKET SIZES

To achieve maximum performance from your 32-Bit DualSpeed
Token Ring Controller, change the default operating system
packet size. Changing the packet size allows the operating
system to transmit and receive larger packets on the
network, which substantially increases throughput.

You can edit the STARTUP.NCF file by executing the install
loadable module. Add the following line to the STARTUP.NCF
file.

SET MAXIMUM PHYSICAL RECEIVE PACKET SIZE=n

The variable n is the packet size you wish to use.

When attached to a 4 megabit per second ring, a packet size
value of 2154 is recommended. When attached to a 16 megabit
per second ring, a packet size value of 4202 is recommended.
The default packet size is 1130.

If you are using bridges on your network, when adjusting the
packet size, be aware of the maximum packet size that the
bridges and network segments will support. Refer to your
network administrator for information regarding maximum
packet size.

To take advantage of the larger packet sizes, the
workstation driver must also be configured to transmit and
receive larger packet sizes.

Refer to the Novell NetWare 386 documentation for more
information on the SET command.







NETWARE REQUESTER FOR OS/2 INSTALLATION


INTRODUCTION

The device driver (CPQTOKNW.SYS) V1.00 allows a system using
MS OS/2 to attach to networks using Novell NetWare 2.1x and 3.x.
The following files are needed to support NetWare operation on OS/2:

CPQTOKNW.SYS - OS/2 Device Driver
NET.CFG - Sample Configuration File

In addition to these files, additional device drivers
available from Novell are required to configure an MS OS/2
system for use with Novell NetWare. Refer to your Novell
NetWare Requester for OS/2 documentation or contact an
Authorized Novell NetWare Dealer for more information on the
NetWare Requester for OS/2.


SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

This device driver requires:
* Any COMPAQ EISA computer with the COMPAQ 32-bit DualSpeed
Token-Ring controller installed. The system must have been
configured using the COMPAQ EISA Configuration Utility.

* MS OS/2

* Novell NetWare Requester for OS/2


INSTALLATION

In the following procedure, refer to your Novell NetWare
OS/2 Requester documentation.

1. Follow the Novell OS/2 Requester installation instructions
to copy device drivers and support files provided by Novell
to your system. Proceed to the step where you are instructed
to edit the CONFIG.SYS file to choose the network
interface board.

2. Instead of removing "rem" from the beginning of an
existing network interface driver line, add the
following line in the same section of the CONFIG.SYS
file:

DEVICE=C:\directory\CPQTOKNW.SYS

NOTE: Substitute for directory the name of the
subdirectory into which you installed the other Novell
NetWare Requester drivers in step 1.

3. After completing the Novell Requester installation,
insert the OPTION CONFIGURATION diskette into drive A.

4. Copy the CPQTOKNW.SYS file to the subdirectory you specified
during the Novell Requester installation. (This is the same

subdirectory you added to the CONFIG.SYS file.)

5. You may create a section in the Novell Requester
network configuration file, NET.CFG, to control several
aspects of the CPQTOKNW.SYS driver operation. These
parameters and the NET.CFG file itself are completely
optional. The configuration options used in the
NET.CFG file for the CPQTOKNW.SYS device driver are as
follows:

Node Address x Overwrites the controller Burn-In
Address. The variable x must be 12
hexadecimal digits. Default is the
Burn-In Address.

No Earlyrelease This keyword is for the token ring
controller running at 16 megabytes
per second. No parameters are
necessary. Default is early token
release at 16 Mbps.

Protocol IPX E0 This keyword specifies which
protocol is used with the driver.
The example above is Novell's IPX
and its protocol identification,
defined by Novell, is E0 (hex).
This is also the default for the
driver.

Source Routing This keyword allows the MS OS/2
workstation to access a server that
is not on the same physical network
through source routing bridges. No
parameters are necessary. Default
is no source routing.

Send Retries 3 This keyword configures the MLID to
attempt 3 retries on transmit
packets. Default is 0 retries.

Refer to the sample NET.CFG file on the OPTION CONFIGURATION
diskette and your Novell NetWare documentation for more
information on these and other parameters that may be set in
the NET.CFG file.
