I'm trying to find a .LAN driver for a 3CCFE574BT PCMCIA card (3Com
Megahurtz 10/100 Lan PC Card) but I can't find one anywhere.
I need it to make an IP boot disk.
One question, do I need to have the .LAN driver or will the old .COM
Answers on a postcard please.. :)
You might find a Xircom NIC with the .lan. IIRC the Xircom 589 has .lan

It would be better but it is not necessary. You can use
16-bit ODI drivers with the 32-bit Client (which supports IP).
Get the 3c574 driver from http://www.veder.com/nwdsk/#niclist16
Create a basic IP disk from http://www.veder.com/ftp/nwdsk/fd32e.exe
Make some space on your diskette by deleting some unneeded drivers
from A:\LIB\ODI32 and add the 3C574.CAB to A:\LIB\ODI16.
This one might need an INT or PORT statement in NET.CFG. Consult
the documentation on the above site or contact me if any trouble.

The .COM driver will work with NETX or VLM, or you can use the 16-bit
driver support for Client32. Note that 16-bit driver support takes
away from some of the performance benefit a 32-bit client offers. For
machines that are very old, it probably would be better to stick with
16-bit driver support example:
3C574.COM <--- Or whatever your 16-bit driver is called.

Thanks for that. Just one question: Where can I find the files for the 16
bit support? (e.g. PC32MLID.LAN etc)
There are no entries for DOS clients in the novell.com downloads adn I
couldn't see them on a client CD. (presumably because these are old and
not included with the newer clients.)
Thanks in advance,
Good catch. I thought it looked incomplete, but couldn't think of it
off the top of my head.
VLM v1.21 can also be found there:
Extract all 6 archives to a common folder, then run INSTALL from there.
Or make 6 diskettes and run INSTALL from disk 1.
