2 Question... Net board & Drive HELP!

Post by Rich Gortatows » Thu, 28 Sep 1995 04:00:00



Hello....

I aquired some network cards.... One is an ACB/ISA 0794 rev c. # 41-00284-002
I have no CLUE what it is... Adaptec? If so what? Its 10 base T ethernet
has two simm slots.... I would desire to Linux it.
The Ne2000's I had probs w/ are up (thanks to all).

Any ideas as to what this board is would be appreciated, linux doesnt see it.
Next... I have these Starlan? Retix Star Series PC-19 10 base_t's...
When installed, they want to be remote booted.... This possible?
They usable? Slow I presume Circa 1987...
But for my application they probably ought suffice.

Any help on them be appreciated...

Next (long winded aye?).... I have an ultrastore Dx17F Esdi disk controller
Will linux grok this?

And if so.... Can anyone tell me what the stats are on an ESDI IBM 0669
Hard disk.... I can find NO info in the various HD references to this drive.
0667 yes, 0669 nuthin... I really need know what the drive is to set up
the controller for it...

Even if the ultrastor wont play w/ linux (though say it will :) ) I can use
it in another DOS or OS/2 based box... It merily will coexist w/ other
drives... Thanks for the help
