Re: Linksys EtherFast 10/100 v5 has no IRQ
To get into your BIOS, try pressing F10 a TON at boot time. If that won't
work, try other key combinations. If that doesn't work, unplug the power
cable from one of your hard disks and boot up. The BIOS should complain about
it, and, hopefully ask you if you want to F1-Continue or F2-Setup (go to the
BIOS setup program.)
If you can get into the BIOS, make sure an IRQ is supposed to be assigned to
the card. Check PnP options, etc.
Hope this helps,

Ok, a few things I'm having trouble with.
1) I can't get into my BIOS. I've tried, but I think I killed the access
prcedure. I have put a new hard drive in this machine so it doesn't behave
like the Compaq website tells me to. It says to hit F10, but that doesn't do
anything. If anyone knows about Compaqs, I have a Presario CDS 982 (about 5
2) I have a USB card plugged into another PCI slot, and it is getting an IRQ
assigned. I don't know why this card is not. The output looks similar for
the two cards:
~# cat /proc/pci
Bus 0, device 19, function 0:
USB Controller: VIQ Technologies, Inc. UHCI USB (rev 4).
Master Capable. Latency=66.
I/O at 0x1880 [0x181f].
Bus 0, device 20, function 0:
Ethernet controller: PCI device 1317:0984 (Bridgecom, Inc) (rev 17).
Master Capable. Latency=66. Min Gnt=254.Max Lat=255.
I/O at 0x1000 [0x10ff].
Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0x10000000 [0x100003ff].
Like I said, I don't kno why there is no IRQ for the NIC. I've tried
compiling the code you sent me, I'm attaching the output I got back. I used
the command I found in the readme file on the disk. I used the code you sent
