+Text File for the COPS LocalTalk Linux driver (cops.c).
+ By Jay Schulist <jschlst@samba.org>
+This driver has two modes and they are: Dayna mode and Tangent mode.
+Each mode corresponds with the type of card. It has been found
+that there are 2 main types of cards and all other cards are
+the same and just have different names or only have minor differences
+such as more IO ports. As this driver is tested it will
+become more clear exactly what cards are supported.
+Right now these cards are known to work with the COPS driver. The
+LT-200 cards work in a somewhat more limited capacity than the
+DL200 cards, which work very well and are in use by many people.
+TANGENT driver mode:
+ Tangent ATB-II, Novell NL-1000, Daystar Digital LT-200
+DAYNA driver mode:
+ Dayna DL2000/DaynaTalk PC (Half Length), COPS LT-95,
+ Farallon PhoneNET PC III, Farallon PhoneNET PC II
+Other cards possibly supported mode unknown though:
+ Dayna DL2000 (Full length)
+The COPS driver defaults to using Dayna mode. To change the driver's
+mode if you built a driver with dual support use board_type=1 or
+board_type=2 for Dayna or Tangent with insmod.
+** Operation/loading of the driver.
+Use modprobe like this: /sbin/modprobe cops.o (IO #) (IRQ #)
+If you do not specify any options the driver will try and use the IO = 0x240,
+IRQ = 5. As of right now I would only use IRQ 5 for the card, if autoprobing.
+To load multiple COPS driver Localtalk cards you can do one of the following.
+insmod cops io=0x240 irq=5
+insmod -o cops2 cops io=0x260 irq=3
+Or in lilo.conf put something like this:
+ append="ether=5,0x240,lt0 ether=3,0x260,lt1"
+Then bring up the interface with ifconfig. It will look something like this:
+lt0 Link encap:UNSPEC HWaddr 00-00-00-00-00-00-00-F7-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00
+ inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
+ RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
+ TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 coll:0
+** Netatalk Configuration
+You will need to configure atalkd with something like the following to make
+it work with the cops.c driver.
+* For single LTalk card use.
+dummy -seed -phase 2 -net 2000 -addr 2000.10 -zone "1033"
+lt0 -seed -phase 1 -net 1000 -addr 1000.50 -zone "1033"
+* For multiple cards, Ethernet and LocalTalk.
+eth0 -seed -phase 2 -net 3000 -addr 3000.20 -zone "1033"
+lt0 -seed -phase 1 -net 1000 -addr 1000.50 -zone "1033"
+* For multiple LocalTalk cards, and an Ethernet card.
+* Order seems to matter here, Ethernet last.
