I've been attempting to install netbsd onto a 386/40 via an NFS mount
from my NextStep box, but the drivers for the ne2000 dont seem to like
I get "ed2 timeout" followed by intermittant host down messages when
I can observe ping traffic from the NeXT toggling the RX light on
the NetBSD box, but the NetBSD box doesnt seem to even toggle its
TX Led at all. I saw a note regarding the 3coms option of link0, so
I even tried that :-( no luck.
I know my NeXT is working fine as I downloaded the BSD distributions
with my NT box, then FTP'd them to the NeXT.
I'm using a UTP crossover cable for the connection.
