during system boot, the eepro100 card will present a prompt on the console
to allow the user to enter a configuration screen. This timeout can be set to
some predefined values, 2, 5 and 8 seconds, if I remember correctly. If you
have a router box with a number of cards, this phase of system startup can
take relativly long time.

Does anyone know how to set this timeout to zero seconds, perhaps by writing
to the eeprom using eepro100-diag?
