Wed, 27 Dec 2000 22:02:25 -0500
ah ha! that's the piece i was missing. the eepro100.c file on your site IS
patched. now i just have to figure out how to recompile a kernel. wish me
luck (and any pointers too?...)
I may get back to you on the fans, or I may just devise some other way to
move air around in there.
Thanks for all the help!1
