I'm having trouble getting Redhat 5 to detect my 3C900 network card.
During installation it prompts me to setup networking and even has the
Boomerang and Vortex cards listed (therefore it has drivers etc???).
Problem being that the autoprobe can't detect my card. I have tried all
the options from Boomerang down to (in complete desperation, 3C501!!)
but it can't detect anything. I have no doco for the card so I have no
idea as to any parameters etc that may make things work "auto-magically"
The machine has a S3 Trio in the 1st PCI slot. The 3C900 was in the
second but it gave an error message there so I swapped it to the 3rd PCI
slot and the error message stopped.
Has anyone had any experience with getting one of these cards going?
Settings etc etc?
Please help before I get really desperate and go waste money on a NE2000
ISA clone or shoot myself or..........
Apart from all this, the system installation was simplicity itself and
(almost) everything went like a dream. (take note William G.!!)
