Making Menu Selections

When you start the EISA Configuration Diskette, an introductory screen appears. Type CF at the prompt. After you press Enter, the main menu, Steps in configuring the computer, appears. The EISA Configuration program main menu contains five steps:

Step 1

EISA configuration information:
This step provides information about the differences between the ISA configuration process and the EISA configuration process.

Step 2

Add or remove boards: If the server is configured correctly, this step provides a list of the devices installed in the EISA expansion slots. The Add choice allows you to add ISA devices to the configuration. If EISA adapters are installed in the server, and you have not copied the .CFG  file to the EISA Configuration Diskette, you are prompted to insert the adapter’s configuration diskette into the diskette drive. The .CFG  file is copied to your diskette. If the adapter’s .CFG  file is copied to the EISA Configuration Diskette before starting the diskette, and the adapter is installed in the server, EISA devices are added automatically.

Step 3

View or edit details: After adding EISA or ISA adapters in Step 2, use the Edit selection of this step to configure them. Use the Edit Resources selection of this step for complex configurations. If you change a setting in this step, you might have to change a switch or jumper setting on the system board or on a device.

Step 4

Examine switches or print report: After Steps 1 and 2 have been completed correctly, this step displays the correct switch and jumper settings for the installed devices that have switches and jumpers. Also, you can choose to print a system configuration report.

Step 5

Save and exit: This step allows you to save the configuration or to discard the changes before exiting the program.

Use the Up Arrow (  ) or Down Arrow (  ) key

to highlight your selection, then press Enter to make your selection. To help you track your progress, a checkmark (OK) appears on the main menu next to the completed steps.
