To reply to my last post: no joy. I tried no kernel config, just selected irq3 and the Default card addr of 0x0000. The installation floppies recognized the card and said it was initializing things, but same results: I would up with only slip and ppp choices. I tried the full-screen intall option next. Xircon ("xe") was't among the drivers in the Network list. Is there a way of installing the xe driver from floppy? Or... ? thanks, gary -- Gary Kline [EMAIL PROTECTED] www.thought.org Public service Unix _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
