I'm trying a network install now using the nativehd inird.  Although I'm a bit
stuck with this as the nativehd initrd is missing a couple of modules I need

 - kernel/drivers/net/mii.ko
 - kernel/drivers/net/8139too.ko

but I haven't been able to find them.  Does anyone know where I can download
these modules (or the package they're in) from?

Are you sure about this?

No I'm not sure at all. 8139too and mii are the 2 modules the card uses when I insert it into the PCMCIA slot of an x86 Debian box. I am just assuming it would be the same 2 modules on m68k-amiga?

(Although my driving instructor always used to say, "Never assume anything")

I'm currently cross compiling gcc on my x86 box for m68k target. If the cross compile works I'm hoping I'll be able to build the Amiga kernel and try a few different options / modules out.

According to drivers/net/Kconfig, this driver is for PCI only?

| config 8139TOO
|     tristate "RealTek RTL-8129/8130/8139 PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter support"
|     depends on NET_PCI && PCI

Does your PCMCIA network card work under AmigaOS?

I don't know, or even how to tell as I am very unfamiliar with AmigaOS. Running amiboot is about the extent of my AmigaOS knowledge :)

I do know that the card works under Debian on an x86 host.
