Re: Cnet Pro200 PCI fast Ethernet Adapter, road runner centralflorida

I compiled again the kernel with all possible "network devices" as M or Y,
except for a group of ARCnet cards. Any way the module dmfe.c does not
appear available. So I have no clue. Could that be a lacking feature in
kernel-source.2.2.19pre17? I checked, and dmfe.c is present in
Any ideas?
