setting up NE2000 ethernet card
Posted on 1998-06-01
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?
