ISA pnp nic adaptor in linux help...
I recently got a old compaq 866 from a family member,
and it contains:
- had - Windoze 98
66 MHz i486 Processor
32 Mb ram
3 gb maxtor hd
and a scsi cdrom running off a sound card, (haven't figured how to make that work yet)....
i did a poorman's install of dsl (damnsmalllinux) and i got it installed to the hd...
256 mb swap = /dev/hda1
and the rest to "/" = /dev/hda2
and i can't seem to get the stupid nic to work....
i got the nic off of ebay about a year ago as a lot
(a mix of pci and isa cards in the lot)
anyway, i threw the nic in the computer and found it won't auto-detect it
and then i did a little google searching and tried the "ne" driver useing "modporbe ne io=0x300 iq=3"
the card came in a Kingston box and the floppy drive disk says:
"ISA PnP Ethernet Adapter"
"ET16/P Family for Artisoft"
and on the card it looks like a realtek chipset...
it is a BNC/Copper card....
dose anyone have any suggestion for me to try/do?
Any Help is greatly appreciated..
