Re: help please! still unknown interface and SIOCSIFADDR!!!!!
Thanks. Now both my 3c509 and NE2000 are working. The is the command I've
been searching for (to add NICs) which eluded me for some time. The HOWTOs
should really be rewritten as it is not clearly written specially for
someone who has been an NT administrator for years.
Now, time to prove to my boss about Linux vs. NT
