He did say they were 486 computers, though and I doubt they even had PCI slots in them. . .

Hi Alberto,

The ne2000 spec ISA nic card can be used,if you are wanting to use your
existing pieces that you have lying around.Good idea,you know the new
spin phrase 'go green',,:) I would suggest buying some rtl8139 pci cards
to cut down on irq conflicts that are VERY possible using ISA based nic
cards. You can download the images for your ne2000 cards here with
various different configurations.


You will need to purchase a rom burner as well.
Use the 32-pin  CSI CAT28F512P rom chips.
Hope this helps.

Take Care,
Barry Cisna
