This is very much unfinished.
Ascertain & write down the PCI slot number, bus number, and MAC address for each NIC, using the 3Com configuration utility 3C90XCFG.exe . This can be found on diskette two. Run that file, it's a DOS LHA archive, agree to the terms by pressing "Y", then it will extract a bunch of stuff, including the latest OS2 driver (in \NDIS2\OS2), dated November of '99 (v5.2.2).
Boot to real DOS, run 3C90XCFG.exe, and the first screen will be as below. The example is from a box with only
one NIC installed; in a dual-NIC installation there will be two NIC sections.
Then boot OS/2 and run MPTS.exe, choose "Configure", "Configure", then select the first NIC from the
"Current Configuration" pane:
Repeat for the second NIC, then close MPTS and inspect x:\IBMCOM\PROTOCOL.ini . Here's the relevant section:
[EL90XIO2_nif] DriverName = EL90X$ MaxTransmits = 40 NetAddress = "00105A1C83A8" Slot = 9 BusNo = 0
There will be two NIC sections like above, at the end of the file.
