Re: Adding new ethernet card to Sun20

ifconfig -a does not show an eth2.

dmesg shows some of this :

eth0: Carrier Lost, trying TPE

Which is fine, it comes up on the TPE.  No other eth messages.

  I get this in the OBP :

sbus-probe-list       fe0123                         fe0123

I don't seem to have much luck with the following :

ok probe-sbus-all
probe-sbus-all ?
ok probe-all

I also cannot find drivers for a single port FastEthernet card.  Any more
suggestions appreciated!
