Greg; first under Linux there will not be and should not be a device
file in /dev for your ethernet card. From what you have NOT said, I
would like to be sure that the module IS installed so do a cat
/proc/modules and look for a "3c509" entry.
Whether the kernel says that it has the module or not will determine the
I am trying to get my local lan going and cannot seem to figure out how
to make the kernal see the ethernet card. I am using a 3com 3509 and I
know that the driver is there. When I use ifconfig I run into problems
such as "SIOCSIFADDR: no such device". Eth0 is not even in /dev, so I
tried MAKEDEV -c eth0 and the error is "unkown device or group eth0".
Can anyone help me get this configured properly? I would appreciate any
