I made my linux kernel by compiling the source code. When I
was configuring make, I was asked if I do have Token Ring
and I have answered Yes (so I hope ibmtr.o is linked in my
kernel) but when I run ifconfig to configure my network, the
answer is 'No such device' and Network unreachable ( route program answer). How to make it working?

Are you connected to a TR.  Most cards do not initialize
if not connected.

Which distribution do you have?, well anyway

cd to /etc/rc.d
edit the rc.inet1

change the device eth0 in the ifconfig command to tr0

and this may be useful to you.

feel free to contact me using email.
