I also have this problem - with a LANTECH E-NET 16 NE2000 compatible card and
Slackware release of Linux (based on SLS 1.02 I think).

The machine ( 486SX25, 8Mb, Trident 8900C...) runs Linux fine without the ethernet card. With the card in place it hangs during boot from floppy - as Mikael reports.

        WD80x3 ethercard probe at 0x300 00 00 00 00 .... not found

(Sorry, the machines elsewhere and I cannot give more details now).


Also, does anyone know af any ftp'able or similar introductory guides on setting up an ethernet LAN ?

Thanks in advance.



1. FTP installation RedHat 6.2 with NE2000 compatible ISA card

When I try to install RedHat 6.2 with FTP installation on a PC with a NE2000
compatible ISA card I have the problem, that the card is not recognized. The
installtion disk seems to support only NE2000 PCI cards, not ISA. Is this

What possibilities do I have to install using the ISA card? Are there any
parameters for loading the network drivers which solve the problem?

Any help is appreciated!
