An Ethernet driver for the IXP4xx platform (e.g. Linksys NSLU2) has
recently been integrated into the mainline kernel, so the Debian
kernel in lenny uses this driver rather than the unofficial driver
which the previous release of Debian used.
The proprietary IXP4xx microcode needed to use the in-built Ethernet
is now available in the package ixp4xx-microcode in non-free.
Installer images for Debian which include this microcode will continue
to be made available from slug-firmware.net.
