I recently downloaded a Slackware release (v2.3.0) from ftp.cdrom.com
which ended up containing the 1.2.8 kernel rev. I understand there exists
a 1.3.x rev. I have scoured over several well-advertised Linux ftp sites
(and read many FAQs) and can't seem to find a 1.3.x rev anywhere. Since
I'm taking the trouble to install Linux from scratch, I'd rather have the
highest stable rev. possible. My main desires/objectives are:
1) [For those of you following the "Intel EtherExpress Pro (NOT)"
thread]: Much to my chagrin, I am offically stuck with an Intel
EtherExpress Pro NIC. Therefore, above all else, I require the very best
support for this card possible. The author of the driver for this NIC
(someone named "Bao" -- I have his e-mail address) states the installation
of a v1.3.x kernel carries the proper driver. Now I just need to find a
1.3.x kernel release...
2) I want to run CAP or netatalk.
3) I like to be able to run a Netware requester.
If someone could point me to a definitive site in which I could achieve
all the above or most of the above in order of priority, I'd appreciate
