Re: Tokenring, modules question.

Yup.  I recall doing this a couple of years ago.  I loaded (insmod,
modprobe) the module twice, specifying the irq/ioport etc for each

I remember at one point actually having two copies of the module with
different names, just hard links, and aliasing tr0 and tr1 to the two

Whatever, it will work.  Unfortunately, that old system is long gone, so I
can't refer back to it.
