Hello Linux Gurus,
I installed Red Hat 5.1 on a 266 PII. The install went well except for
my NIC. It is a plug and play card, but is on the tier 2 Linux HCL
(Intel EthernetExpress PRO/10+ ISA (SW Rel 3.5).
So I dumped out the card using pnpdump. Pnpdump sees the card, yet the
installer does not? Anyway, I vi'd the dump as pnpisa.conf and ran as
root pnpisa pnpisa.conf. This did not work, either from command line -
or on reboot (pnpisa.conf in /etc).
I then tried to set the card in conf.modules, and reboot... No luck.
My pnpisa.conf file orginally looked like this, as written by pnpdump:
My *windows setting* for the card is io=210-21F irq=5
(CONFIGURE INT1031/-911850112 (LD 0
(IO 0 (BASE 0x0200))
(INT 0 (IRQ 3 (MODE +E)))
This did not work. pnpisa consistently refused to read past the first
My conf.modules file looks like this:
alias eth 0 eepro
alias eth0 options -k io=210 irq=5
I tried every combination with the io param i.e., (0210,210-21F,
0210-021F etc...) rebooting after each change. I see the modules
loading message at boot time, but the interface is never created.
Any corrections to the above - suggestions - help would be
