>>My problem is, that I do not find such a driver (*.inf), not on the netgear site, nor via Google etc. I just get windows setup files, zip files, but no *.inf file for Win98. Installing on a Windows system and copying the *.inf (if there is any!) file to the Ubuntu system, I get an error message: invalid file. Does anybody now a link where to get a functioning driver?<<
The Windows98 driver is in the Zip file.
Download the zip file at:
When you extract the zip file to the desktop as the instructions say at: http://www.ubuntugeek.com/how-to-ins...untu-edgy.html
You will find the Windows98 inf and sys files in the Driver directory, under the Win98 subdirectory.
The path will be: Driver\Win98\net111v2.inf and Driver\Win98\net111v2.sys
