SECTION 2 - INSTALLING ADAPTER CARDS
INTRODUCTION
WARNING
Always turn off power to the computer and disconnect the
power cord when inserting adapter cards in your computer.
CAUTION
Always wear a conductive groundstrap when handling adapter
cards to prevent damage to components by electrostatic discharge.
NOTE: The instructions in this section apply to AT-type computers
ONLY. AT-type computers are 80286, 80386, 80486 and Pentium
based IBM PC/AT-compatible computers.
PC HARDWARE INSTALLATION CONSIDERATIONS
Every time you use a PC and install utility cards in the slots
provided, you run the risk of conflicts with the hardware.
NOTE: It is critical that you understand your hardware. We recommend you to have a list of the interface cards and other devices as
well as the interrupts and memory locations used by each. This
information is needed during Startup as you are configuring each
node.
HARDWARE SETTINGS
Many of the cards you insert in your computer's expansion
slots require hardware settings. These settings are:
•
•
•
•
ROM addresses
I/O port addresses
Interrupts
DMA channels
Settings are usually selected using jumper pins or dipswitches
on the interface card.
The settings you make for each adapter card must not conflict
with the settings on any other card.
Follow Tables 2-1 through 2-4 to choose the settings for the
adapter cards of commonly installed peripherals.

DEC CELEBRIS/VENTURIS 590 - ETHERNET
Memory Address Locations
Each PC made to AT Compatible standards has memory allocated between 640K and 1MB for use with expansion cards.
The addresses start at A0000 and continue to FFFFF. The
memory blocks are in 64K segments and a typical map looks
something like this:
A0000-AFFFF EGA/VGA VIDEO LOCATION
B0000-BFFFF CGA/MONO (TEXT MODE ON VGA CARD)
C0000-CFFFF Hard Disk ROM (SOME SPACE AVAILABLE)
D0000-DFFFF
E0000-EFFFF Large BIOS
F0000-FFFFF Not Available
The space from A0000 to AFFFF is used for the video EGA/
VGA, there may be some space available here or there may
not.
B0000 to BFFFF is not available since the text portion of the
VGA card uses this area.
C0000 to CFFFF has some available space, as an example you
can set your SCSI controller to sit at CC00 and have your
Ethernet card at C800. (The size between breaks is 16KB,
(4000hex), so that would be C8000 + 4000 = CC000.)
D0000 to DFFFF is unused initially, and is available for expansion cards. This may be a ROM or RAM address depending on
the card being used.
E0000 to EFFFF is the last available memory location and may
already be used with a large BIOS.

I/O Ports
Input output ports (I/O ports) allow your microprocessor to
communicate with your expansion cards. Each card must use
a unique set of ports. No two cards can share a port and most
cards use a series of ports.
Some typical uses are:

Interrupts
Most cards need to tell the processor when they have information for the processor to handle. Getting the attention of the
processor is done through interrupts. Each card is assigned an
interrupt number through which it can make requests of the
processor. Interrupts are also called IRQs, which stands for
Interrupt ReQuest. The number used by each card must be
unique.
There are only fifteen IRQs available as IRQ 9 cascades to IRQ
2. The recommended settings are found in Table 2-5.

VIDEO ADAPTER CARDS
Super VGA and VGA Cards
Most VGA video cards have internal software switches that
determine the display mode or output to different types of
monitors. These software settings can only be changed by
using a configuration program supplied by the manufacturer of
the card. If you have a SVGA card and you find it doesn't display graphics properly after you have completed installing (e.g.,
I-E97-811-1C
VIDEO ADAPTER CARDS
2-5
INSTALLING ADAPTER CARDS
®
only two thirds of the graphics display appears on the screen),
reboot the computer using DOS, and run the configuration
program supplied by the card manufacturer. Check that the
default display mode is set to SVGA, the resolution is set to
1024x768 and the monitor type matches the monitor you have
connected to your card.
LAN-90 PCV supports the ATI Graphics Ultra (family of SVGA)
cards with 2Mb of video memory.
NOTE: Ensure that the ATI Graphic card is configured to operate in
16-bit mode. Cards set to 8-bit mode will result in degraded perfomance.
SERIAL AND PARALLEL PORTS
Usually, there are serial ports and parallel ports already built
into the computer, so you do not have to install them yourself.
Some computers require that you add an expansion board with
a second serial or parallel port. If so, follow the directions in
the manual supplied with the card or the manual supplied
with your computer.
CTI Intellicon Serial Card
The CTI card's default settings is IRQ 3. This is the IRQ line
normally assigned to a second serial port. If your computer has
a second serial port, you must disable it if you wish to use the
CTI card's default settings. We recommend you, select IRQ 15
or another IRQ not in conflict with any other of your computer's settings.
If you have followed the instructions given in this manual and
still experience interrupt conflicts, contact your Elsag Bailey
service representative for details on changing settings on the
CTI card and modifying the console configuration to use the
new settings.
Figure 2-1 shows the correct dipswitch and jumper settings for
the CTI Intellicon serial card.

Ethernet Network Card
If you are setting up an Ethernet network, you will need one
card for each computer connected to the network.
You will need to record the Ethernet address and keep track of
the computer it is in. Use copies of the form supplied as Appendix B. The Ethernet's 12 digit address can be found on a label
on the card or can be displayed using the card's DOS based
software utilities. Refer to Figure 2-2.
Diskless Clients require different hardware settings than those
of Servers and Clients with disks.
HP On-Board Ethernet
The HP XU and XM series of computers have a built in ethernet
adapter. This adapter is supported for use in the LAN-90 PCV
system. This adapter is NOT support for use with a diskless
Clients.
To configure the adapter, you must use the ROM BIOS setup
provided by HP. On boot up, the “System Hardware Test”
screen will show the progress of the BIOS as it checks the computer's hardware.

MKM/EMKI KEYBOARD SWITCHING
If you are installing an MKM or EMKI keyboard, you can set up
two computers on the QNX network so that the one keyboard can
be used to operate both computers. This lets operators watch and
use two displays, such as a process graphic and the alarm summary, at the same time by switching the MKM or EMKI keyboard
input between the two computers (indicators on the screen tell
the operator which computer is the active console). Set the two
computers so that their monitors can be placed close together.
Attach the MKM/EMKI keyboard to one computer. The computer
with the MKM/EMKI keyboard is called the main keyboard node;
the other computer is called the auxiliary keyboard node. Connect both computers to the network. Further steps are needed to
enable the MKM/EMKI keyboard switching, and these are discussed in Section 9.
