I have a difficult problem with a 3c905b-tx. When I try to boot from floppy (syslinux + zlilo-file) the computer hung at line 269 in 3c90x.c (etherboot 5.0.1) "while (inw(ioaddr +regCommandIntStatus_w) & INT_CMDINPROGRESS);". It just print out the text: Probing...[3c90xB-TX] (Oops, I don't remember exactly... I don't have the computer available for a couple of days) and then nothing. The strange thing is that if I run the 3com DOS-program 3c90xcfg.exe "3c90xcfg configure", and then try the same thing everything works perfect. If I then boot NT4.0 (with unknown 3com driver), and after that try my syslinux floppy (or plain floppyimage) again, it is stuck again. Arrggh! Any ideas anyone? Of course I can try to debug it more, but maybe someone already know something good. Thanks /Erik S Erik Starbäck Computer science teacher KTH Syd, Sweden P.S. I thought I was smart when I tried a floppy with DOS and 3c90x.com. Then I could just do a "3c90xcfg configure" before I run 3c90x.com, but no :-( a differnt bug appeared. The 3c90x.com got my DOS-image (made with the old Gero K. mknbi-dos) but the it stops. The corresponding 3c90x.lzlilo works perfect (after I did run "3c90xcfg configure"). =========================================================================== This Mail was sent to netboot mailing list by: email@example.com To get help about this list, send a mail with 'help' as the only string in it's body to firstname.lastname@example.org.
