I have a Linksys ether16 LAN card (non pnp) that I would like to use with linux.  However, when I originally installed Caldera OpenLinux 1.1 (linux kernel 2.0.29), I set it up with no ethernet card.  When I try to add a card with lisa, the configuration tool, it asks what is the device path, defaulted to /dev/eth0, however, it says that no such device exists...it says that an appropriate kernel module must be loaded.  I tried to load the ne.o module using the configuration tool, it said that the module could not be loaded.  I read somewhere to boot with a parameter like ether=5,0x240,eth0 since my ethernet card is on IRQ 5 and I/O 240.  This did not seem to change anything.  I really want to get this card to work.  Any suggestions?

I'm not a Caldera specialist, but you can get it working if you create *or modify* /etc/conf.modules with the following information:

alias eth0 ne
options ne irq=5 io=0x240

with this setup, and if you have kerneld runnig, everything should be ok, without any other parameter... Any way you can give the following command on the command line (to watch the results ;-):

ifconfig eth0 your_desired_ip_address

Good luck,

you for configure you ethernet card in Caldera Linux in the prompt /etc/rc.d/ in the modules you add the card when eth0=5,0x340, for added more card is equalt the configuration.

You suggestion did not work, however, I was able to get the card working by adding the ne.o module with the parameters irqq=5 io=0x240.  Thanks making you suggestion.
