I would like to take the time out to say thank you for showing me that
link.. I went to their web site thinking I could download some linux
software drivers or something, but I didn't look deep enough.
Howevery the cards that I use are the EtherPCI LAN Card II, not the
EtherFast 10/100. I did however, find a little section that dealt
with my type of card and they said that I could use the ne2000 driver.
So, THANK YOU!!!!
