Can't identify Ethernet card, sound card, and monitor

Can't identify Ethernet card, sound card, and monitor

Post by Felix Morley Fin » Mon, 26 Jan 1998 04:00:00



I hope I haven't cross-posted this too much, please feel free to
enlighten me otherwise.

I've had Linux running on my old 486 for 4 years now, and recently
inherited a 133 Mhz Pentium from a bankrupt former employer.  It has
no documentation and I doubt I could get any from where the PC came
from :-)

I have X runnig, but I bet I could get more out of the monitor.  Does
anyone have specs on a Proton GM-1764?

The Ethernet card is a mystery.  I opened up the box and all I could
find on the card is "CE", and one chip which says "UMC - UM9008F".

The sound card also has "CE" on it, and teh chips say "ESS AudioDrive".

The dang PC came with Winnows 95, and much to my regret, I installed
Linux before thinking to nose around and find out what Winnows thought
it had for the Ethernet and sound card.

Any help identifying these components, *especially* the Ethernet card,
would be much appreciated.  One cheap PC for a months pay sure isn't
much!

That's a NE2000 clone chip.
It requires a special setup program if you need to change parameters, but
otherwise should work fine.

1. Identify 'Earthnet' Ethernet card?

I came acrost a strange ethernet card in a pc last night.  This machine is
a recently retired server.  It's a Samsung SC800 386DX/20 w/duplexed hard
drives, etc.  Since it was a server, I assume that the parts are pretty
quality which leads me to believe that the ethernet card might still be
useable--it's not a 3c501 or such.

Has anyone ever heard of 'Earthnet' cards?  The company that makes them
was something like 'Earth computers'.  Leads?

I wouldn't mind running Linux on this box.  It might make a decent NFS
server.

Cheers,
David
