success NICs (disabled CONFIG_ISAPNP with 2.4.1-ac11)/other oddments/Problem: NIC doesn't work

From: Rob Cermak (

2.2.19pre11 works.

Got 2.4.1-ac11 to work with these settings:

# Plug and Play configuration
# CONFIG_ISAPNP is not set

eth0: Digital DC21041 Tulip rev 17 at 0xfc00, 21041 mode,
00:00:C0:5C:45:01, IRQ 10.
eth1: 3c509 at 0x340, 10baseT port, address 00 10 5a 1c e5 fe, IRQ 7.
3c509.c:1.16 (2.2) 2/3/98
eth2: 3c509 at 0x320, AUI port, address 00 20 af 0a 62 0d, IRQ 5.
3c509.c:1.16 (2.2) 2/3/98

Oddments: [Can't show you since the machine locked up both times
  prior to logging information -- I need to break out the serial cable
  and capture boot messages]


2.4.1-ac12 -- SCSI driver takes over and does not allow the IDE
     disk to boot.

2.4.1-ac11 -- The first time, root didn't remount properly from read-only
     to read-write and hung at trying to bring the system logger up. Was
     able to reboot using ALT-CTRL-DEL.

     Booting as single worked and then allowed it to follow through the
     remaining boot sequence. All seems well.

Vitals on 2.4.1-ac11:
