AMD PCNet with Netware 3.12

Well I found out that the AMD PCnet driver will work on Netware 3.12 on Qemu 0.9.0 with a little cajouling. So to switch from the NE2000, I first downloaded the following files:

*odi33g.exe
*odi_ahsm_svr3x.zip
*nw4-idle.nlm

From odi33g.exe, copy out the following files to your server directory

\server\33spec\ethertsm.nlm
\server\33spec\312\msm31x.nlm
\server\33spec\312\nbi31x.nlm

Your server directory should contain…

nbi31x.nlm
ethertsm.nlm
msm31x.nlm
pcntnw.lan
pcntnw.ldi
nw4-idle.nlm

Then configure your autoexec.ncf like this…

load c:\server.312\msm31x
load c:\server.312\pcntnw slot=2 frame=ETHERNET_II
bind ipx to pcntnw net=c0ffcab
load c:\server.312\nw4-idle

I’m not sure about the speed, but the idle NLM is fantastic, it means that your VM won’t run at 100% cpu…

Wasn’t that fun?

About neozeed

What is there to tell? I've loved UNIX like things since I was first exposed to QNX in highschool (we had the Unisys ICONS!), and spent the better time of my teenage years trying to get my own UNIX... I should have bought Coherent in retrospect.. Anyways latched onto Linux in 1992, and then got some old BSD admin books and have been hooked on the VAX BSD & other big/ancient things since...!
