The appropriate driver for your Ethernet protocol must be installed.

For example, if your system requires the `NWLink IPX/SPX' network driver,
it must be installed like so:

Put the Windows 95 or NT system disk in the CDROM drive.

Select `START'

Select `Control Panel'

Select `Network'

Select `Add'

Add the NWLink IPX SPX driver.

Other drivers are installed in similar fashion.

Why do I need to include the appropriate Ethernet protocol driver?

This is necessary for either obtaining the Ethernet card address
and to provide connectivity with a Netware License server.
