I wasted over an hour trying to install FreeBSD 4.5 on a new einux 1-u server. The main board is a MS-6378 board with a ADMtek AN983B on board nic card.
The "nic" is found during the install
dc0: <ADMtek AN985 10/100BaseTX> port 0xe800-0xe8ff mem 0xd8000000-0xd80003ff irq 11 at device 15.0 on pci0
and I'm able to configure the "dc0" DEC/Intell 241143 (and clone)
I can ping the ip address of the card but can't ping the gateway. I checked my subnet and gateway and cable they are all correct. I get a link light on the hub.
I wonder if the problem is the ADM PXE bootROM. I tried a couple of settings.
The box takes forever to load and hangs on "sendmail" for about 3 minutes before booting to a root prompt.
But still no joy.
