Re: Potato vs Realtek8029PCI NIC
For what it's worth, I am running one of these cards with the driver
compiled into 2.2.16, rather than as a module.
Here's a snippet from dmesg:
ne2k-pci.c:vpre-1.00e 5/27/99 D. Becker/P. Gortmaker
ne2k-pci.c: PCI NE2000 clone 'RealTek RTL-8029' at I/O 0xe800, IRQ 10.
eth0: RealTek RTL-8029 found at 0xe800, IRQ 10, 52:54:00:E6:65:FB.
