Device driver command line options

The Initio device drivers support command line switches to optimize driver perfor-

mance. However, in certain situations some driver optimization may be advantageous

to system performance.

NetWare offers two means of entering command line switches. One method is for

session usage and needs to be entered each time the system is rebooted.

Load (Pathname) ini910u [Driver Config Option]

following statement.
