What amounted to some hair-pulling :) when I tried installing the
client when I had a 3c509 was the the driver diskette didn't have support
for this netcard. So if you want to use a 3c509 and when the install
program shows you the drivers, DO NOT select any (there's only support for
the 501 and 503 I think), instead, select "Other Driver" at the bottom
of the screen and put in your Etherdisk. After the install program copies
the protocol.ini from the etherdisk, put back the second driver disk (disk 3)
The client is made up of 4 disks, 1 install, 2 drivers, 1 novell connectivity
