I have a home Token Ring network. Not all hosts are up all the time; in fact, when
I'm away, everything's shut down. Problem number one is that when I start up my
first machine on the TR, Linux TR driver doesn't seem to have a default ring speed
setting. So it just probes and probes and probes... I have to start up an OS/2 or
DOS machine for the ring speed to be set, so the Linux can finish booting.
Problem 2 is that I have several IBM 16/4 Token II cards that I would love to add to
the network, but Linux doesn't support them. Any chance that these would be added to
the list of supported cards? It seems a shame not to have such support, as these
cards are available cheaply on the resale market.
