D.0 Appendix D. Contents of the LAN Support Program NDIS Version 1.0
This appendix lists the files and directory structure for LAN Support
Program NDIS Version 1.0. DXME0MOD.SYS and DXMJ0MOD.SYS are referred to
as protocol drivers because they interface with the NDIS MAC driver.
D.1 The Root Directory
Important: In some cases, LSP NDIS may be located in a separate
directory. In such instances, all references to the root directory should
be understood to mean the directory in which LSP NDIS is found.
DXMA0MOD.SYS Interrupt X'5C' arbitrator. Also handles message file
and establishes country code for the message file.
DXMT0MOD.SYS NetBIOS interface device driver. Presents NetBIOS
application interface. DXMT0MOD.SYS communicates
(downward) to an IEEE 802.2 application interface.
DXME0MOD.SYS NDIS protocol driver for the IEEE 802.2 application
interface. To provide NetBIOS support when using
DXME0MOD.SYS, DXMT0MOD.SYS or DXMJ0MOD.SYS is needed.
DXMJ0MOD.SYS NDIS protocol driver for the NetBIOS application
interface. Does not provide the 802.2 interface, but may
offer improved performance when NDIS adapters are used
only with the NetBIOS interface. Can be used with
DXME0MOD.SYS for some configurations. See "Choosing the
LSP NDIS Drivers to Provide IEEE 802.2 and NetBIOS
Support" in topic 2.1.2.
DXM.MSG LSP NDIS message file used by the LSP NDIS drivers.
Contains all LSP NDIS driver messages, except the message
which tells the user about message file problems (message
06E). The version of this file provided with LSP NDIS is
in U.S. English.
DXMMSG.001 The U.S. English message file.
DXMMSG.034 Message file for Spanish. (1)
DXMMSG.049 Message file for German.
DXMMSG.081 Message file for Japanese.
PROTMAN.DOS NDIS Protocol Manager. Reads NDIS configuration
information from PROTOCOL.INI and makes it available to
the NDIS protocol driver and the NDIS MAC driver.
NETBIND.COM Calls the protocol manager to initiate the bind process
between the NDIS protocol driver and the NDIS MAC driver.
DXMAID.EXE LSP NDIS installation program.
DXMAID.001 Panel file for U.S. English. Contains all the
installation program panels, except for the driver
DXMAID.ccc Panel file for country with DOS country code ccc.
PROTOCOL.INI Prototype version of PROTOCOL.INI, an ASCII file
containing NDIS configuration information used by the
protocol drivers and the NDIS MAC driver.
README.LSP Additional information not found in the User's Guide.
(1) If one of the language-specific message files is used, it
must be renamed DXM.MSG. The Installation Aid does this
renaming automatically. See "Selecting and Copying the
Files" in topic 3.3 for more information about renaming this
D.2 The \NIF Subdirectory
\NIF Subdirectory containing subdirectories for
language-specific network information files (NIFs). The
subdirectories of the \NIF are described in the following
\001 U.S. English NIF subdirectory. A NIF
is an ASCII file containing driver-specific
information. It includes driver parameter
information, such as the type of parameter,
the allowable range, and help text
for that parameter. The following NIF
files are supplied with LSP NDIS:
\ccc Contains NIFs for DOS country
code ccc (ccc represents the DOS
country code for the DOS COUNTRY
D.3 The \DOS Subdirectory
NDIS MAC NDIS MAC driver and associated files.
See the Installation and Testing Instructions
for your adapter for more information about these files.
