Have you tried writing the driver disk onto a different disk to check if its a
media problem?

I hit exactly the same issue/same error message, and I tried a second disk, and
it worked fine; I think your theory is right.

Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2002-05-23 19:44:22 UTC
Any luck with a different disk?

Comment 4 Paul Murphy 2002-05-28 13:59:45 UTC
I booted from boot.net, hit f2 and loaded drvnet fine.  I selected etherlink III
(3c509) and then tried to set the IRQ to 7.  At that point the process went into
a loop continually querying for a device, unless I didn't try to set the IRQ.
The default IRQ doesn't work because of a conflict.  Setting it to 7 works fine
in 7.2 /etc/modules.conf
