How do I set the I/O address for my NIC in Linux Mandrake 7.0?   It has the I/O of 220, that is the setting for the sound card. My NIC does not have a jumper or any switches. This card did work (I could telnet to it and FTP to it from my Win 98 Machines) when I was running Caldera 2.2.

Find out the name of your nic driver ('lsmod') and in /etc/conf.modules, find the options line for your driver - if you use eexpress driver, it would look like

options eexpress

and at the end of that line, add

io=0x220

Many network cards are configured using a DOS program. Maybe on the disk that shipped with your card you'll find a program which lets you assign a different I/O port.
