Modification Type:  DOCUMENTATION:  Editorial Modification:
                                    Updated Product Name

NOTE:  An OpenVMS saveset or PCSI installation file is stored
       on the Internet in a self-expanding compressed file.
       The name of the compressed file will be kit_name-dcx_vaxexe
       for OpenVMS VAX or kit_name-dcx_axpexe for OpenVMS Alpha.
       Once the file is copied to your system, it can be expanded
       by typing RUN compressed_file.  The resultant file will
       be the OpenVMS saveset or PCSI installation file which
       can be used to install the ECO.

An ECO kit exists for DECnet for OpenVMS Alpha V6.2 on OpenVMS Alpha V6.2. 
This kit addresses the following problems. 

  o  The CPU affinity for NETACP was modified to prevent a potential 
     system crash or race conditions leading to a deaccess hang in 
     an SMP or EV5 environment.

  o  This kit will also modify the DECnet $PROBE to prevent an access 
     violation on zero length $QIO reads or writes.  This zero length
     $QIO, for example, could be used when terminating a series of 
     IO$M_MULTIPLE reads or writes.


The system must be rebooted for the new NETDRIVER image to be loaded.
