This document shows how to modify
IBMs LAN Client for use with Racores Token Ring adapters.
What you need...
Your Racore adapter properly

LOAD RCPTR386 FRAME=TOKEN-RING
LOAD RCPTR386 FRAME=TOKEN-RING_SNAP

Edit your NET.CFG file (usually
in the LNCLIENT directory), by replacing the word TOKEN in any

you are prompted to overwrite any files confirm yes and then
reboot your computer.
