In Re: to this thread, does anyone know offhand how one would pass these
arguements via /etc/lilo.conf for the 3c59x driver when it is compiled
into the kernel?
I have a 3c905 card in a 2.1.120 kernel which says it is autonegotiating
but will not go to full duplex even when talking to a 3com switch 3000
which /should/ work
The best I can figure it is doing is some variation of 100mbit half duplex
