Hello, the subject line says it all: I'm trying to install the latest
Slackware distribution on a 386/40 with a 16 bit ISA Intel EtherExpress
card. I have tried the scsinet.s and net.i bootkernels, neither was able
to detect the card. I manually compiled a kernel that specifically
included EtherExpress drivers hardcoded into the kernel. No luck either.
Do I have to specify the location, IRQ, base address, etc. on the lilo
prompt line? If so, what's the correct syntax?
