HP Proliant DL320 + HP N7760 gigabit ethernet card + slackware 10.1 = frustration?

Hi there.

I've got a HP Proliant DL320 server (G2, scsi etc) with two inbuilt HP N7760 gigabit ethernet ports.

looking at /etc/rc.d/rc.modules, it doesnt appear in there so I dont know how to install/find/locate a driver for it.

HP tells me it's not supported and that Redhat enterprise 4 will support it.

Can anyone tell me any different and give me a way out of installing redhat, sticking with slackware 10.1 and
getting my server to actually recognise my HP N7760 network card??

Thanks very much

yep. you need to use ndiswrapper for that.
you need to use .inf windows file and .sys

ndiswrapper -i windowsinffile.inf
modprobe ndiswrapper

in the /etc/ndiswrapper after that you found a drivers

with ndiswrapper -l you see the drivers if load or not.
