010001 - Short PS/2 Adapter /A for Ethernet Networks (ADF @EFD4)

How to use IBM PS/2 Adapter /A for Ethernet Networks Under Win95 and Win NT

The installation instructions were reported to the FORUM FIBMJ, Bulletine Board #4 "PS/55 & PS/2" held by @ Nifty on 05/15/96 for Win 95 and on 01/06/97 for Win NT by Mr. Masaru Nishikawa.

With his permission I translated his method to English. In Japan it's not so easy to get SMC 61C8/61C9 or 3Com 3C529. On the other hand it's relatively easy to get a 92F0046 cheap. Mr. Nishikawa's instructions for 95/NT really helped (and still helps) many Japanese Ethernet users.
