lspci -v output?
Comment 2 Gene Czarcinski 2001-08-19 05:49:50 EDT
The problem seems to occur with any NIC which needs the driver disk (e.g.,
pcnet32 also).

This defect is considered SHOULD-FIX for Fairfax.
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2001-08-29 15:28:16 EDT
The driver disk always prompts for which driver you want to use.  Note that they
were autoloading before because they were on bootnet which does do probing (more
on natsemi on 52511 in a minute...)
