Re: irq?



i have tried a number of linux distros, all of which set the irq for my RPTI
EP401 ethernet card to 3, and all of which do very strange things when i try
to use the network card for both my home network and the internet. the only
distro that i have found that works is simplyMepis, which sets the irq to 7.
since mepis is a debian based system, and since i want access to the wide
range of rpm packages, it would be nice to get fedora core 4 up and running
on my laptop. which is why i asked about changing the irq.

anyway, as far as i can tell it is ISA.
so, how do i go about setting the parameter at module load time?
