[svlug] RedHad can't see Ethernet card

Dear Sirs:
I found the following webpage about ethernet.  They mention some
potential problems with the 3c509, perhaps due to plug and pray (pnp)

http://sunsite.unc.edu/LDP/HOWTO/Ethernet-HOWTO-5.html#ss5.1

The source code to the driver is in
http://cesdis.gsfc.nasa.gov/linux/drivers/3c509.c
Maybe it is a new version that has the necessary patch.

Good Luck,
Chris Mason.

	Hi All, 

	This is to all of you guys preaching the advantages of Red Hat -
	I tried to install 4.2 on a friend's computer, and we can't get
	the ethernet card (3com 3c509) to work. What is the secret?

	His setup worked fine with Slackware, by the way.
