RE: Cheetah PCI NIC

I replied to this before, but must have got lost in the ether...

On the accton website (somewhere) you can download the 
kernel module.  It is listed as a linux driver, and comes as 
a zip file 1207dlinux.zip.  Within that zip archive are three

en1207d.c	Source code for the kernel module
en1207d.o	The kernel module
Linux.txt	Instructions for installing the module.

I followed the basic instructions in the Linux.txt file for 
installing the kernel module, and was then able to ping the
internal network... (I'm running the bog standard Slink
kernel, YMMV)

NB: The method described of inserting the module will only 
work until the next reboot.  To make more permanent
arrangements, you will need to look into update-modules
(I didn't get around to that step, myself, I was just happy
to see the card finally working)

PS: If you want me to send you the zip file, let me know ..
I have a copy here on my PC at work .. its only about 60K

Subject: Cheetah PCI NIC

Hi all,

I do believe that this subject has been touched upon before. I was 
wondering if there is someone out there who has used a Cheetah PCI NIC 
from Accton.

I have installed it but do not know which module to use. I actually 
tried the NE2000 module I believe (not the PCI version for some reason 
or other) and Debian is able to see it but I can't seem to do anything 
with it.

Should I have used something else?

Also, as I am quite new to Linux,is there someone out there able to 
tell me how to go about changing the info to let debian know that the 
NIC has changed. The last few times, I just basically re-installed 
debian. I know this is not the proper way but I couldn't find any 
documentation on how to change this info.

Anywone able to help?
