Re: [suse-security] 3C509 Ethernet Adaptor Support



Thanks Nick,

I configured it with the 3Com DOS prog.  Removed Plug & Pray .  Tests worked
OK on I/O 300 IRQ 5
I was then able to config using Yast2.

But I still cannot get DHCPD to assign IP addresses over this interface.
I had the same trouble with a previous ISA Ethernet Card which was my reason
for trying the 3Com device.
DHCPD works fine when I am using a PCI ethernet device as eth0 but not it
seems when I use an ISA one as eth0.
All my config files (named, dhcpd, SuSEfirewall2) remain unchanged.

Any ideas where else I can look.

I am stumped !

Philip
