1. Problem Getting ed0 recognised
I wrote to this newsgroup a while back detailing my new purchase of
FreeBSD, and what I wanted to do with it. I've since received some
replies, and I thank those people for taking the time to write.
I still haven't found the time to install FreeBSD onto my LAN server,
and frankly, I'm a little bit nervous about doing so. Ever since my
first foray into *nix, network cards have given me no end of trouble,
and as access to the server is essential for everyone in this
building, I want to be sure that I can get the new server up and
running in the 24-hour window that I will have.
So to test FreeBSD, I'm installing it onto an ordinary workstation, to

Card-01 Ethernet PnP ISA Card /S
I then get into the FreeBSD boot sequence, where it asks me if I want
to go into the config menu, or continue with the install. The first
time, I choose the latter. It then tells me:
ed0 not found at 0x280
I boot again (after having checked the address of the card in
Windows), and finding it on IRQ 10 at 0x240) and select the new
Again, I get:
ed0 not found at 0x240
Hmm ... anyone got any ideas?
As I write this, I'm looking at the configuration of the card in
Windows: I/O 0240-025F, IRQ 10.
As always, an e-mail Cc: would be nice, and again, I thank you all in
advance for your help ... :-)
