3Com Etherlink III (ISA) installation
I don't know if this is the forum to place this question, but there are so manny so I thought this is the best to place it.
All this day I'm trying to install my 3Com Etherlink III ISA card on Ubuntu 5.10.
It isn't recognized after the install so I have to manually install it.
Oke fine :rolleyes:.
But heres the problem, I have no clue how to install it; Searched Google, forums, etc, etc. After 4 hours of research I got someone saying in a forum: Try lspnp and see what you get.
Ok I tried that, first the command wasn't recognized, so I had to install pnpbios-tools. (No usb-stick available, no cd-rw so I had to burn 400kb on cd :mad:).
Anyway after installation the command worked, but now I get this error:
lspnp: /proc/bus/pnp not available
I checked the dir and there is indeed no such folder only these ones:
The command lspci did worked and then I get this output:
Host brdige: ALi blabla
PCI bridge: ALi blabla
ISA Bridge: ALi Corporation M1533 PCI to ISA Bridge (Aladdin IV, rev b5)
Ide..., VGA..., etc
Oke so no step further. I also don't know if this is the good way to install the card or whatever, but I'm really getting crazy now.
Is it really that hard to install an Isa networkcard?
Hope you folks can help me out.
Really really big thanx in advance!
I'm having a break now and drink some coffee ;)
