I need to reconfigure x86 SOl 2.6 on COMPAQ DL380 hardware to use a 3Com PCI NIC instead of the onboard NIC. The reconfig processs, what's a good way. I am expecting to;
disable onboard NIC in BIOS,
enter device configuration assistant and add new NIC
as root, #ifconfig iprb0 plumb (?)
then configure the adapter as required.
How does this process look? Flawed? OK? Suggest something better?
