I. NETWARE OS/2 REQUESTER WORKSTATION INSTALLATION.........

The Netware OS/2 Requester workstation driver for ProNET-10
is compatible only with ProNET-10 drivers version 4.x and
above.

If you have never installed the NetWare OS/2 Requester,
please review the NetWare OS/2 Requester installation manual
before proceeding.

Once you have installed the NetWare OS/2 Requester on
your workstation, you are ready to load the ProNET-4 OS/2
workstation driver. Make sure that the ProNET-10 interface
does not conflict with any hardware in your machine. Note
the configuration settings of the interface board.

To install the ProNET-10 OS/2 workstation driver:

1.) Place the backup copy of the distribution diskette
in drive A: on the workstation.

2.) During the NetWare OS/2 Requester installation
process, a directory was created for device
drivers. Copy the ProNET-10 driver to this
directory. For example, if the device driver
directory is named \NETWARE on the workstation's
hard drive, C:, type:

COPY A:\NWOS2\PRONET10.SYS C:\NETWARE

3.) Edit the CONFIG.SYS file to load the ProNET-10
driver. Device drivers must be loaded in a
specific order. Place the line

DEVICE=C:\NETWARE\PRONET10.SYS

after the line

DEVICE=C:\NETWARE\LSL.SYS

but before the line

DEVICE=C:\NETWARE\IPX.SYS

in the CONFIG.SYS file.

4.) If the ProNET-10 interface is not set to the OS/2
workstation driver default values of I/O base
address A20, and interrupt level 9, you must
create a file named NET.CFG in the root directory
of the workstation's hard disk. This file must
contain the configuration settings of the ProNET-10
device you want to use. An example NET.CFG for a
board using I/O base address 1a20, and interrupt
level 4 looks like the following:

link driver PRONET10
port 1a20
int 4

Please refer to the installation manual provided
with the NetWare OS/2 Requester for more explicit
information regarding NET.CFG. NET.CFG requires
special syntax and formatting that are explained in
greater detail in the manual.

II. OS/2 SHELL DRIVER VERSION NOTES

Version 5.0, dated 9/10/90
This is the first driver to support the Netware OS/2
Requester. The driver will be certified by Novell at
a later date.



III. COMMON NETWARE OS/2 WORKSTATION ERROR MESSAGES..............

The following error messages could occur during
initialization of the NetWare OS/2 workstation driver.
Each error message explains possible causes and suggests
corrective measures.

- "MLI0208: ProNET-10 device not responding."

The I/O base address configured on the ProNET-10
board does not match the I/O base address provided
in the "net.cfg" file.

- "MLI0209: Error finding ProNET-10 address. Check
cable."

The cable is not securely connected to the ProNET-10
adapter or the ProNET-10 wire center.

- "MLI0210: Duplicate node address found on the ring."

The node address of the board being initialized in
the OS/2 workstation is set to the same node address
of an adapter already in the ring. Every node address
on the ring has to be unique, so you MUST change the
node address of one of the boards.

IV. COMMON PROBLEMS.............................................

If you are having problems running the drivers, make sure
that...


If your OS/2 workstation shows a message that the system
halted, it probably means that the ProNET-10 interface is not
set to the configuration defined in C:\NET.CFG, or the
interface board has been removed from the machine. To
resolve the problem, edit the C:\NET.CFG file to correspond
to the hardware settings, or edit the CONFIG.SYS file and
remove the line to load the ProNET-10 driver.

If you continue to have problems with the drivers, please
call the Proteon Response Center, Westboro, MA at
(508) 898-3100.
