This file 3c90x2.exe is a self-extracting packed ZIP file which has to get unpacked first. If you have DOS, just run this exe file under DOS, and it will extract all files. If you don't have DOS, you can use the unzip program which comes with most (if not all) Linux distributions. This unzip program is able to unpack self-extracting archives as well. Once you extracted all files from the archive you will find a file called el90x.dos in some subdirectory which is the NDIS2 driver you need. Alter- natively, you can also use the file 3c90xpd.com which is a DOS packet driver and which is also contained within this archive. It also works with netboot, but is a little bit buggy, so you should better use the NDIS2 driver. I'm using a couple of 3C905B and 3C905C with these drivers without problem. gero. -- Gero Kuhlmann Tollenbrink 18 Groote Gracht 33 firstname.lastname@example.org 30659 Hannover 26723 Emden email@example.com 04921/997561 =========================================================================== This Mail was sent to netboot mailing list by: Gero Kuhlmann <firstname.lastname@example.org> To get help about this list, send a mail with 'help' as the only string in it's body to email@example.com.
