Description Silvio 1999-11-25 13:31:02 UTC
There is a driver (tulip_cb) that works with the Etherjet Cardbus PCMCIA
that comes in the IBM Thinkpad 570. But it's manfid is not in the

In order to the EtherJet Cardbus PCMCIA network adapter to be identified,
edit /etc/pcmcia/config on the netboot image  and add
(Author of the following lines: r.scholten@physics.unimelb.edu.au )
    card "IBM 10/100 Etherjet CardBus"
    # version "IBM", "10/100 EtherJet CardBus", "IBMC-10/100"
    manfid 0x00a4, 0x0113
    bind "tulip_cb"

Remake the netboot image and dump it to a floppy.
RH6.1 will install itself from the network with no effort!
