Realtek 8019 - ISAPNP & Slackware

I have an old single board computer (486) with an onboard 8019 realtek nic. It is not possible to disable the PNP.

I have the card detecting just fine with isapnp - port 0x220 IRQ 9. When I try:

/sbin/modprobe ne io=0x220

I am getting ... init_module: No such device or address

I have also tried /sbin/modprobe ne io=0x220 irq=0x9
same results.

I am running the latest version of slackware (redhat and mandrake won't run on a 486. Is there any others that will?)

Download the file RSET8019.EXE

Startup with a DOS-bootflop and run this. Change the PNP to jumperless and remember the io and irq setting.

Restart your computer using Linux. Logon as root and type:
modprobe ne io=0x240 irq=3 (with your settings ofcourse !)

If this workst fine then try configuring you card by typing
ifconfig eth0

To view the settings type:
ifconfig eth0

To do the above automatically at bootup:
add "modprobe ne io=0x240 irq=3" to rc.modules
start netconfig and type the ipaddress.

Good Luck,
