(1) OVERVIEW
============

This README explains how to install the UPPSFP.EXE driver under DOS. This
driver implements a Data Link Interface (DLI) conforming to the SysKonnect
Universal Portable Protocol Stack (SK-UPPS) standard. It is the platform for
all SK-UPPS client applications and protocols, which may be loaded on top of
the DLI. See the documentation that comes with those applications and protocols
for detailed information on how to install them.
