My ISA Nic does not work in Mandrake 10
Hi every one it's good to be back. I've upgraded from Mandrake 9.2 to 10.0 and everything went very well except I can't get my ISA Nic to work. It is a 3com card 509B and it is supported but hard drake does not probe ISA cards apparently. How can I manually install and configure it to work? It worked perfectly fine in 9.2. I'm still a newbie so any help is much appreciated.

Once you know what module works with your ethernet card, put in "/etc/modules.conf"

alias eth0 xxxx
options xxxx io=0xyyyy irq=zz

where xxxx is the module name. If needed, you may specify the io address and/or irq with the options command. Every time the kernel access eth0, it will load the module.

Hi there thanks for the code. I found out how to do it using the GUI is was as easy to install as it is in Windows. Much appreciate the help.
