Linux doesn't find ethernet card (3c503), pl. advise

Post by Alok Kumar J » Sat, 29 Jul 1995 04:00:00



Hi,

I have DOS and Linux on my 386.  Linux does not find the ethernet card
(3c503) if I directly boot Linux.  The way I need to work then is
first boot DOS and load the ethernet card and reboot to Linux, this
way Linux DOES find the ethernet card.

Is this a normal behavior, and the only way to have Linux see the
ethernet card?  Is there a clever way to boot Linux directly and have
it see the card?

Please advise.

Thanks
Alok
