The Debian Installer says that when you choose driver modules to
install, it will provide a page of description on each module; but it
doesn't. Therefore I had to guess which modules I might need, I
installed a module for AppleTalk.
I now have a ipddp0 device loading at boot. What is this device? Does
the driver I loaded into the kernel expect to find an AppleTalk card
* on my machine? Should I remove this device from the config
Really what I want to do is use my Linux box (an old 486 laptop) as a
file server on my home LAN using FTP. While I was installing, I
thought, "Hey, AppleTalk, couldn't hurt..." But what I want to use is a
3com PCMCIA ethernet card.
I would like the advice of a Macintosh user who has a LAN with mixed
Macs and Linux boxes: What is the most sensible and hassle-free method
for doing this?
Use reply-to address.
