Installation: Unzip to the root of a drive or diskette

                without junking the paths (or with PKZIP, using the

-d parm).

Use: Run NICPAK.CMD to determine if a driver is available.  If so, you

can then download the driver package file, unzip it to the same root

where you unzipped, and run NICPAK.CMD again to

install/update the NIF and driver files in \IBMCOM\MACS.  You then must

run the MPTS configurator to add to and/or update your protocol.ini

file.  If you allow NICPAK to invoke the MPTS command, it will validate

any changes made to \IBMCOM\PROTOCOL.INI against the values in


        You can run the NIFCHK.CMD to validate all of the NIFs and drivers

present in \IBMCOM\MACS on your boot drive.  You can optionally check

another drive by running NIFCHK.CMD with the full path to \IBMCOM as a


I have also tried to identify chipsets for which I can not find an OS/2

driver.  I know that this doesn't make it work but at least you will be

aware of that.

Several chipsets are used by multiple vendors.  In that case, I have

tried to determine the basic driver for that chipset and point all of

the known descriptions to it.  In some cases I have created additional

NIF files (but not additional drivers) to account for the unique


You may get a selection list with more NICs than you have installed

because various vendors use the same chipset in their products.  Just

pick the one that fits.

NIC driver packages available at

Drivers that are provided by IBM to Serenity Systems for inclusion in eComStation

(i.e., in the convenience packages) may not be found in nicpak unless an updated

driver is available.  These are primarily by chipset manufacturer.
