Thanks, but I had a look at the manufacturers driver disk, and it directed
it me to a site which said that I must treat the card as a tulip. I
downloaded the source code, but it won't let me compile it - something about
gcc command not recogised?
I think in future I'll get the oldest 10meg card I can - save me the head

If you have installed the HOWTO documentation with Mandrake 7.x you
have the directory /usr/doc/HOWTO/HTML/en/
In there you should have the Ethernet-HOWTO and in section 5.24 of that
you will see what drivers to use. It looks like there were several
different cards using the same
names but with different chipsets. You need to identify the chipsets
on your card.
see the following file on your system (if you have HOWTO docs installed)
If you don't have the HOWTO docs installed the look for the RPM
on you disc set that goes something like
"howto-html-en-7.1-2mdk.rpm" and "howto-html-en-7.1-3mdk.rpm"
and install them.
Otherwise, goto www.linux.org and read the Documentation section.
I hope this helps.
