Subject: 3c905c Tornado NIC Install BootNet Image for FRHL 5.2.1
Many new PCs come with 3Com 905c Tornado card, but the 2.0.36 kernel
doesn't seem to support it.
The 3c59x.c driver did not support this card until the June or
July release of v0.99L 3c59x.c driver.
Replace the 3c59x.c on the bootnet disk and in
/lib/modules/2.0.36-3/net after install (using post-install script)
This is a simplified boot disk, it will only let you install over
NFS using the 3c905c card... After the install is done it will
replace the /lib/modules/2.0.36-3/net/3c59x.o with a newer verision.
I have not tested this particular image... Please review the ks.cfg
on the root of the floppy to make sure I didn't do anything stupid.
Is coming soon from Connie in the form of the official boot floppy
with 0.99L included.
