: have them at IRQ 10, 0x300 adress, and on the 386 boot with Lilo. Passing
: parameters with lilo has not worked either. I boot from floppy on the Pentium

: appreciate it. Has anyone out there gotten Intel Ether Express cards to work
: with Linux? If so please E-mail me with your success stories.

If they're EtherExpress16, they should work fine as you described (several in
use here with no trouble). If they're EtherExpressPRO, they won't work. At

driver, but that time has not yet come...
