I apologize in advance for posting something off-topic, but....
I am attempting to set up a PLIP connection between my Linux box
and a 286. I got a good cable (2 actually) which conforms to the
specs, have got my Linux box configured and rebuild the kernel.
However, on the DOS (ugh!) box, I am attempting to use the Crynwr
plip driver on irq 5, soft io addr 0x7e, hardware io addr 0x278,
ethernet id 31:32:37:2e:31:2e. Each type I try to ping my linux box,
i get "cannot resolve host's hardware address". Any suggestions or
places to refer me to?
And before someone shouts "RTFM, buddy!", I have spent all day RTFMing
and looking for TFMs to R.
