Re: network install problems on 7200/90
Yes, I have had this problem. The short answer is: MACE is completely
broken in recent 2.2 and 2.4 kernels. It seems to be able to send 1-2
packets before failing with "lost a status word". These few initial
packets allow DHCP to work ok, while everything else fails.
I don't know how to fix it, although I remember using MACE on Linux
fine back in 1998 (don't ask me which kernel!), and NetBSD and Mac OS
Perhaps this will spark some discussion to the root cause, as I would
like to use Debian on my old 604-upgraded 7500!
