Re: ASDG EB920 Ethernet Support In Debian m68k

You said you took a quick look, where?  I've been over the netbsd site,
found a www access to their source tree, but I have not been able to
locate a file that looks like an 8390 driver or an ethernet driver.

I'd appreciate if you could point me in the right direction.

It looks like the MAC address on the EB-920 (LanRover) card is in a 32
byte PROM chip (74288) so I should be able to program a part for my
other card.

Well, since I don't know enough to have a preference, that's where I'll
start (zoorro8390.c).
