Installing via Ftp, network card problem


Hello

I have searched allover the net for this answer,
but maybe I have been looking in the wrong places?

I'm installing Suse 9.2 via Ftp. I have 2 network cards installed.
Winbond W89 C940, which is I use to connect to the Internet. The other card
is 3com 3c905 and its purpose is a connection to a another computer.

When I load the network modules, kernel recognizes 3com card, but not the winbond card.
When loading the modules the program asks to insert parameters. First I didn't enter any information to these and 3com card seemed to work. I wasn't sure what information was needed, but I tried different stuff and nothing helped.

All the info that I found on the net, went through setting the parameters with the command line.
I'm getting desperate, because i've been reading a lot of manuals and i can find the answer.

I am using XP at the moment and soon Suse I hope.

Or did you?
From the ethernet for Linux HOWTO:
Quote:
Winbond 89c940

Status: Supported, Driver Name: ne, ne2k-pci (+8390)

This chip is one of the two commonly found on the low price PCI ne2000 cards sold by lots of manufacturers. Note that this is still a 10+ year old design just glued onto a PCI bus. Performance won't be staggeringly better than the equivalent ISA model.
When prompted for the "parameters" enter the IO/IRQ numbers that were assigned by M$ XP.

Best luck,

I have been looking and I know that winbond is supported, because I can choose it from the list that the installation program gives me.

M$ shows range of I/O numbers like DC00-DC1F, it should be on exat parameter right? I also tried to put the irq numbers when the parameters were asked, and the program said it was installed successfully. But when checked the kernel messages, there was a message that the parameter is invalid or something.

I you could tell me in which form the parameters are to be typed.

Thanks

Not sure if the IO range is for the NIC; It should be a unique number as you guessed.
Usually you type them as in the following format: IO=XXXX IRQ=YY
That said, I don't have a clue concerning how to make two NICs run on the same machine
My advice would be to put your post in the hardware forum with more details.
