1.0 Chapter 1. Getting Started with the IBM LAN Support Program NDIS
The IBM LAN Support Program NDIS (LSP NDIS) Version 1.0 is a new version
of the LAN Support Program, which is provided with certain IBM adapters
and is legally licensed to be used only with these adapters. It can be
configured to provide all functions of both the IEEE 802.2 interface and
the Network Basic Input/Output System (NetBIOS) interface for these
adapters. The adapters with which this program was provided are defined
as Network Driver Interface Specification (NDIS) adapters because they
require the support of an NDIS MAC driver in addition to the LAN Support
Program NDIS driver. See Appendix C, 'Files Required for NDIS Adapters'
for more information about NDIS adapters.
See Figure B-1 in topic B.0 for a diagram showing the paths by which
information is transported from an application program through LSP NDIS to
the adapter and back again.
1.1 What You Need
To use LSP NDIS Version 1.0, you need:
° The diskette that contains the LSP NDIS files. For your convenience,
the NDIS MAC driver and associated files that are needed to install
LSP NDIS are located on the same diskette. You should make a backup
copy of this diskette.
° A computer with one or two IBM NDIS adapters installed and the
- 80 KB of free memory, which is needed to load a typical
configuration of LSP NDIS without using the Installation Aid.
Note: To use the Installation Aid for a typical configuration,
300 KB of free memory is required.
- A diskette drive.
- A display.
- A PC printer (optional).
- Attachment to a LAN. LAN attachment is not required if the
computer is being used for configuration only.
° One of the following operating systems:
- DOS 3.3 or higher (except on the IBM(*) Personal System/55(*)
computer). With DOS 5.0, LSP NDIS operates only in normal mode,
not in task-switching mode.
- Asian version of DOS (J4.0, J4.0/V, J5.0, or J5.0/V) on the
° One or more network application programs.
LSP NDIS provides an interface for two kinds of network application
Programs written to the IEEE 802.2 interface
(such as Personal Communications/3270)
Programs written to the NetBIOS interface (such as the PC Local
Area Network Program).
° A blank diskette if you plan to make the working copy (1) on a
(1) A working copy is a copy of the program that has been
configured for use in a particular computer. The working
copy can be installed on a diskette or on a hard disk.
1.1.1 Using the Stand-Alone Version of the LAN Support Program
You should use LSP NDIS unless you plan to install two adapters, one of
which was not provided with LAN Support Program NDIS, or if you need
Configuration, Installation, and Distribution (CID) support.
If you need to support an adapter that was not provided with LSP NDIS in
conjunction with an adapter that was, you need to use the stand-alone
version of the LAN Support Program Version 1.3 or higher. The stand-alone
version supports the adapter accompanied by LSP NDIS in addition to other
adapters. See the user's guide for the stand-alone version for a list of
A copy of the stand-alone version of the LAN Support Program (Version 1.35
or higher) should be purchased if you plan to use CID. The CID-enabled
Installation Aid for LSP, DXMAID, can be used by a CID administrator who
should be familiar with NetView(*) DM/2 (NV DM/2) or an equivalent CID
software distribution agent.
The stand-alone version has not been supplied with this adapter and must
be purchased separately.
