I have a Centris 650 without an AAUI transceiver for the built-in ethernet
port. I have an Asante EN MuBus card installed. How di you two get Linux to
bypass the built-in ethernet and use the NuBus card instead?

I use a Quadra 840av, System 7.6 I never had that problem. It detects the card at startup. Are you sure the card is ok? Get the driver from www.asante.com and test the card in Mac OS. For some reason, I get 2 "errors shutting off slot interrupts" in the Penguin-18 booter. Then the thing runs real slow and leaves characters from previous lines on the bottom line of the screen. I believe it is being bogged down by this slot problem.
