Re: NE2000 ISA
I've got _two_ ne2000 compatibles (one realtek pci and one other isa) in my
machine and they work w/o problems (and this machine also has many other
cards (scsi, sb64 etc.) inside). With my isa card came a disk with a setup
utility to set the i/o port of the isa card. Even if you have pnp enabled,
there should be a diagnostic utility or so which will tell you the i/o port,
and if you're lucky it will work under dos which you can boot from a disk.
Do you have such a setup disk and a dos boot disk??
