I have problems getting my netwerk running under Linux (Slackware 3.4,
First I tried it on my P187MMX with an RPCI Ethernet card, sits in the
PCI-slot. No luck, I tried starting it with insmod ne io=0xd400 (adress
shown in Win 95 and shown in Linux with cat blahbla)
However when I try insmod ne io=x0d400, the whole system freezes (who said
Linux didn't crash :))) )
So after try 1 day I turned my attention to my old trusty 486 DX4, which
should be running Linux one day (as internet gateway, fileserver etc)
The DX4 has 24mb, 800mb hdd (at the moment 250 dedicated to Linux, as it has
to run Win98 to get me on the internet) and a 3com 3C509b.
But Linux won't detect the card, it's an isa card in a VLB-machine (legacy).
The whole stuff works great under Win98 (otherwise I couldn't print or get
on the internet)
Does someone have any suggestions: on the 486 I tried to recombile the
kernel with only support for a 3c509 but without success.
Some story for the P187 I tried to recompile the kernel with only ne2000
support but no success.
I am new to Linux scene so I must be missing something, question is what
