NDIS2 Driver tab

This dialog box displays the details required to configure NDIS2 drivers. The Ghost Boot Wizard completes some of the details. NDIS2 drivers are on the disk supplied with your network card.

Click Setup to let the Ghost Boot Wizard fill the rest of the page with the information contained in the configuration files that are supplied with the NDIS2 driver.
The Ghost Boot Wizard reads Oemsetup.inf, provided by the network card manufacturer, to determine what parameters must be specified.
Type the DOS file name of the NDIS2 driver. NDIS2 drivers usually have the extension .dos appended to the end of their names.
Driver name
Type the internal name of the driver. This is not the same as the file name. The internal name of the driver is used when generating the Protocol.ini configuration file and must always end with a $ character. If the setup button is unable to fill in this field for you, you can find the driver name for your network card by reading the sample Protocol.ini file that should be in the same directory as the driver itself.
Type the parameters that go into the Protocol.ini configuration file. If you used the Setup button to automatically fill in this page, then you can see the parameters that you need to adjust. For the majority of plug-and-play cards, all of the parameters are optional, so you can either accept the defaults or leave this box empty.
Multicasting is not supported by Symantec Ghost 2003. Optionally select a multicasting mode. Most network interface cards support different methods of receiving multicasts from the network. Symantec Ghost can usually determine the best method to use based on information in the driver. However, some drivers misrepresent their capabilities and in these cases the multicasting mode must be explicitly set.
There are three options:
  • Select Automatically

This is the default. Symantec Ghost selects the best mode to use based on the information in the driver.

  • Receive Mode 5

This may be less efficient than letting Ghost select the mode automatically but it is supported by most cards. Use this mode if the above option does not work.

  • Receive Mode 6
Less efficient than mode 5. Use this mode if Receive Mode 5 does not work.
