This document contains instructions on installing and configuring the Racore SCO Unix driver. The Racore SCO Unix driver is compatible with the Racore 16/4 Mbps Token Ring product line, SCO Unix System V, and all SCO Open Desktop versions. It complies with the IEEE 802.5, IEEE 802.2, and SCO LLI 3.0 interface specifications and supports the following protocol stacks:

* Microsoft LAN Manager for Unix 1.1 and 2.2

Installation Procedure:

1. Install the adapter card ensuring that there are no IRQ, DMA, or other conflicts.

At this point, it is a good idea to run the Racore diagnostic program (either the DOS program, TR16DIAG.EXE, or DIAGNOSTICS form the Flash ROM) to ensure that the adapter card is functioning correctly and that there are no conflicts with other devices in the machine.

2. Logon to the system as the super user (root).
