Hello.

I am using the Slackware Linux 2.0.0, but am having trouble getting my DEC EtherWorks Turbo network card initialized.  I have tried adding the 'depca' driver in the /etc/rc.d/rc.modules file, but that does not work either.  Should I be using a differnet module?  How about settings on my card...will only certain IRQs work.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There is a module for the EWRK3 card, and if you have a recent kernel (>=1.2.8) then there is a question during "make config/Other ISA adapters" for the ewrk3 card. The autoprobe should be ok, but if you have conflicting hardware, then ofcourse you must fix it, either by reconfiguring the card from DOS or by editing the ewrk3.c file and change the list of possible  IRQ's.
