 Network install
I have an old Compaq 486 with 8MB ram.
On which I want to install FreeBSD 4.x (pref 3), but it can't find
my NIC (standard ISA Nic from Compaq,  with a sticker on
it with something about Novell).
I know it's on IO 0x300, but the IRQ I don't know for sure, so
I take the default (10).
But when setup want to put the nic up (with ifconfig) it doesn't work.

Anybody know what to do or check?

BTW I hade the same problem with installing Debian.
Only RedHat 5.2 (installed from CD) could find it.

Thanks in advance,

If it has a novell sticker on it, it's probably saying it's novell
compatilble.. so usually in that case using Ne2000 should do the trick... i
think. Just do the fullscreen kernel config and set the irq to 10 and the
i/o to 0x300. Hopefully that will work.
