Loading Token Ring in MS-DOS 6.22

Loading Token Ring in MS-DOS 6.22


I am trying to load a Token Ring card in DOS (Autoexec.bat & Config.sys).  This is proving to be very difficult.  I am unsure if it is that I do not have the correct drivers or am doing it incorrectly.

I have two Token Ring Cards and would be happy for either of them to work:

IBM 16/4 Token-Ring PCY Adapter 2 with Wake on LAN

Madge RapidFire 3140 V2 PCI (3140 2010)

The Madge website is not much help in trying to find DOS drivers.  So far I have found the following:

The Assist utility, WHATADAP.EXE & IFADAP.EXE

The things havehelped me out a little but I have still been un-successfull in loading the driver in DOS.

It is also a little confusing on the Madge site when looking for drivers as there is the following:

DOS (Client32)

Which is the correct one to use???

I apologist but I have not had much experiance with token Ring and using it in DOS.

If anyone has any ideas it would be great.
