(I indeed meant that I used bootnet.img.) I tried the NE*000 driver and
the NE2000 PCI driver that were available. Do you mean one of these? My
ne2000 has got IRQ 5 and I/O locations starting at 0x300. It is totally
non-plug and play and it seems to be very hard to detect.
I got all these details from Windows because the card was also
second-hand. I don't know the difference between PCI and the other type,
but I guess it's not PCI. I filled in the IRQ and I/O on installation.
