Re: NE2k problem

What are the symbols?

What's most likely happening is you're doing only an `insmod ne2k-pci`.
You need to do one of two things:

	modprobe ne2k-pci


	insmod 8390
	insmod ne2k-pci

to get your ethernet card to work.

The unresolved symbols are coming from the low-level driver for the
National Semiconductor 8390 (or compatible) microcontroller on the
ethernet card.  The low-level code is shared among about 10 ethernet card
drivers (some 3com ISA cards, NE1k/NE2k, WD 80*3, 'prolly some others)
that use the same microcontroller but have differing "glue logic" to send
the microcontroller the commands.
