ISA NIC support?
« on: May 12, 2008, 06:06:56 am »

Hi, I installed vl light rc4 on an amd k6-2 500. being old hardware the nic is not PCI but ISA. It does not see the nic at all even though I have the ISA "service" turned on.

any thoughts on how I get this to work? I don't want to buy a pci card to get this working.

Evil Overlord rule 58 My doomsday device will not employ a large red digital countdown device unless it is absolutely necessary.  If a countdown device proves to be necessary, the doomsday device will be set to activate when the counter reaches 00:10:00, rather than 00:00:00.

It would be alot easier to help if you would include
NIC name,model#. Adding more information like
from dmesg and uname -r would help with google foo.
