Network Configuration Manager
to configure a driver.
PCI, EISA, and MCA adapters may
not require that you supply special driver configuration
parameters, because most configuration information is detected
If you are configuring ISA or
PC Card (PCMCIA) adapters:
for configuration information specific to your network adapter.
You will be prompted for the network topology appropriate to
your LAN; Ethernet, Token-Ring, and FDDI
are currently supported. Only topologies with corresponding
drivers installed on your machine are displayed.
You will be prompted for any information
that the system cannot detect automatically.
You must supply parameters
that match those that are defined for the adapter
and do not conflict with the settings
that are already in use
by other hardware installed on your system.
for more information.
You might also be prompted for ``custom'' parameters
specific to your adapter; see the corresponding
UNRESOLVED XREF-0 configuration notes
for more information about these parameters.
The Network Configuration Manager performs
``ISA filtering'' to check that
network driver parameters do not conflict with those of any
other installed driver.
Values already in use are not displayed.
(Device Configuration Utility)
if you need to free a value for your LAN device.
For some software-configurable
ISA adapters, the Network Configuration Manager
first configures the driver, then writes driver
configuration parameters to the adapter.
Some hardware configurations may be prone to conflicts between
networking and other components; for more information, see
``Checking for conflicts between hardware and drivers''.
Network adapter drivers included with UnixWare 7 are
``dynamically loadable'', which means that
they can be added to a running system without rebooting the
system or rebuilding the kernel.
It might be necessary to reboot your system after configuration
if you have installed some older drivers.
See your hardware documentation for more information.
