Re: [K12OSN] ISA nics not recognized



Joe,

Take a look at http://www.LTSP.org/instructions-3.0.html

Also, make sure on the 3c509 cards that you have disabled the
plug-n-play feature.  You will need the 3com diskette to turn
that off.

ISA cards cannot be detected, os the require the nic driver to be specified in a 'NIC=' parameter to be passed on the kernel command line, usually specified in the option-129, in the /etc/dhcpd.conf file....
