I just installed Redhat 4.2 because I need a libc 5-based system.
Unfortunately, it doesn't recognize my

  721383-011 Intel PRO/100+ PCI Management Adapter (TP)
  (82559, full duplex, 2 led's)

NIC out-of-the-box.  It does have /lib/modules/2.0.30/net/eepro.o and
eepro100.o from 1997, but I don't see pci-scan.o.  I guess the plus version
didn't even exist back then...

Q: Does the current eepro100.c driver support the above NIC?

I tried to compile it on RedHat 4.2 (which is libc 5 based in case it
matters), but it fails with

  kern_compat.h:148: linux/init.h: No such file of directory

(I did -I/usr/src/linux/include)

Q: Any ideas?

Also, trying to install the RPM on Redhat 4.2 gives me a

  Data type 9 not support


Any help would be highly appreciated!
