NEWBE - Trying to install network card in Linux on win95 network

Post by Brian or Waylan » Tue, 23 Mar 1999 04:00:00



I'm trying to get my Linux machine on my network of win95 machines. I'm
still in the getting the card to work stage. I know it works in Win95
machines. But I have acouple of problems. 1 ifconfig is saying the card IO
is at 290. When it is at 280 and Linux at boot times detects that. But I
can't change it. I have been using this command. ifconfig eth0 io_addr 280
Is this wrong. Any info on good internet sites would be good. And any info
on what I need to do for further setting up. Would be nice. Please send

Brian

Yeah wierd ain't it?  It has been like that in the SMC/WD (or is it
8390-based) NIC-drivers for years.  Dunno why nobody has fixed it.
Doesn't hurt.  Ignore it.
