2 ethernets  SMC Elite 16( WD8013) with RH 5.2

Hi I have cable modem intenet access and I have RH 5.2  with this
configuration:
Server Linux:
RH 5.2
Processor                :  Pentium 90 MHz
RAM                       : 40 Mo
Hard Disk    SCSI   : Seagate    1 Go
                      IDE   : Conner cp 100 Mo
CDROM     SCSI   : Sony
Graphic adapter      :  ATI mach 32
SCSI adapter          :  Adaptec AH 2940 PCI
Network Card         :2  SMC Elite 16( WD8013)   i/o =280; IRQ= 3 ;
RAM=D0000

i/o=300; IRQ=10; RAM= CC000
Mouse                     : 3 butons ms-compatible

3 Clients working with Windows.

The probleme is my linux doen't recognise my 2 Networks Cards and my
mouse doesn't work  in X.
I have only 3 posibilities to configure my NIC:
1) i/o =280; IRQ= 3 ; RAM=D0000
2) i/o=300; IRQ=10; RAM= CC000
3) by software( in windows)

I need help to configure this server.

Thanks for any help

Sorry for my english is not good, my mother tongue is french.

Younes:

I don't know if this will be useful to you, and I am just getting the
hang of this myself (w/SuSE 6.0), so please excuse and correct any
misstatements, but I recently set up a dual-homed machine with an SMC
80xx and a 3Com 3c509, and had some problem getting the SMC card to be
recognized as well when I compiled the kernel with built-in support for
SMC-Ultra.  When I recompiled with all modules, lsmod showed that
SMC-ultra was loading a module called 8390.  BTW, when I set up the
hardware I had to supply io=0x280 and irq=3 arguments on the load line.

It is real simple to add the support for the ne2000 card.
 get up to speed on the kernel. http://metalab.unc.edu/LDP/HOWTO/
there should be a kernel HOWTO there.
then all thats left is to build a kernel with ne2000 support.

I have almost the same nic's. Or.. is it he same card?

I might be wrong, is it a 82xx or a 80xx card?

Mine is a 'SMC EtherCard Elite 16 Ultra (8216, 8216C, 8216T)' as found
by Windows95.  And linux find it, no problem.  Nice card.  Stable.
My cards have a 2,7cm x 2,7cm 'SMC? UltraChip' on it.

The smc-ultra.o module handles it ok.  And shall load the 8390 first.
(look in the source.)

..../linux/drivers/net/8390.c
    /* 8390.c: A general NS8390 ethernet driver core for linux. */
    /*
            Written 1992-94 by Donald Becker.
[...]

      This is the chip-specific code for many 8390-based ethernet adaptors.
      This is not a complete driver, it must be combined with board-specific
      code such as ne.c, wd.c, 3c503.c, etc.

But i belive the wd.o (and not the smc-ultra.o) is the correct module
to then be loaded for 80xx (8013??):

...../linux/drivers/net/wd.c

   /* wd.c: A WD80x3 ethernet driver for linux. */
   /*
           Written 1993-94 by Donald Becker.
[...]

           This is a driver for WD8003 and WD8013 "compatible" ethercards.

But. If it is the same nic as i have, a 'SMC EtherCard Elite 16 Ultra
(8216, 8216C, 8216T)', then this works:

...../linux/drivers/net/smc-ultra.c
     /* smc-ultra.c: A SMC Ultra ethernet driver for linux. */
     /*
             This is a driver for the SMC Ultra and SMC EtherEZ ISA
             ethercards.

             Written 1993-1996 by Donald Becker.

[...]
             This driver uses the cards in the 8390-compatible, shared
             memory mode.  Most of the run-time complexity is handled
             by the generic code in 8390.c.  [...]

I have it (smc-ultra) compiled into the kernel as i have three cards
in one machine, 1 or 2 smc-ultra and maybe a 3com 509b, and let lilo
(lilo.conf, try 'man lilo.conf') pass:

[...]
    image = /boot/vmlinuz-2.0.36
      label = linux
      append = "ether=5,0x280,eth0 ether=10,0x300,eth1 ether=11,0x320,eth2"
      root = /dev/hda5
[...]

So i dont use modules.. very often..

But never used the irq3 on the nic, i conflicts with my com2.  (Or
com1 can also have the irq3 on my motherboard) I guess this could be
the cause to the problem with the mouse.)

(and, i dont often use modules, have it all in the kernel, sometimes i let
the line be:

      append = "ether=0,0,eth0 ether=0,0,eth1 ether=0,0,eth2"

but then i dont have the same control over wich card is found first and
so on. )

The 'IRQ= 3' is a com2-killer, a mouse-killer...

If it is the same card as i have, (i dont think so, given 'WD8013') it
can be permanently set to other adresses as well.  And then a jumper
on the card must be set to 'jumper 1', 'soft configuration'

It have to be done in dos.  And smc (http:///www.smc.com i belive)
have the setup-program for the card.

But then agin, it might not be the the same card.  So i belive this
card should have the wd.o module.

It can also help to manually set the irq used by the nic to 'isa only'
or 'legacy' or whatever bios calls it.

My english is not good II.  And i dont care.  This is poetry..  ;-)
The names on the SMC-nic's are a bit confusing II.  And so are the
3com 509 and 905.  Ethernet 'tree' is four me five O nine.

I am not sure, but it seems that the SMC * PLUS cards are 'WD'based,
the SMC * Ultra cards are not.  If there is any rules in the naming of
the cards.

The rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain.

go to smc webpage and download the ezsetup-tool with it ya can configure
your cards to other
irqs and adress!
