RE: 3c90x woes
ok so I patched the kernel successfully and went through make config and
make dep just fine.
when I do make bzImage (also tried zImage, zdisk, and bzdisk) everything
works fine until it gets to the very end:
as86 -0 -a -o bootsect.o bootsect.s
make: as86: Command not found
I've never heard of as86...couldn't find any packages by that name either.
Any further help would be much appreciated.

and kernel version 2.2.15.
The 3c59x module that comes with the standard kernel did not do 100mbit/s
connections for me. 3Coms own 3c90x module does, so I believe it to be
Of the ways described in the 3Com README I only tried the
one - because it worked the first time.
If you need any help with compiling/patching a kernel just drop me a line.
