RE: firewall/webserver combo

Hi Paul,

I am using a realtek RTL8039. This, by default, is a PnP device, i.e. you
have to use the ISAPNP package, or set it up in non PnP mode.

If you want my isapnp.conf file then mail me direct, but it is fairly
straightforward to generate if you read the isapnp documentation AFAIR (it
was a long time ago that I did this...)
