I've successfully downloaed, burnt and booted onto the ilug BBC (much thanks to all concerned).
The PC I'm using it on is a windows PC which needs reinstalling. First I need to get onto it and copy some stuff off across the network.
The network card is the following:
Ran pnpdump >somefile and isapnp somefile. Gives above name and hardware address I believe.
* Has anyone any idea of this network card cos I can find nothing about it. Is it supported? If not I'll have to stick in a pci card.
* What must I do to get the network interface up. eth0 doesn't exist seemingly. Perhaps it wil be created on insmod of correct modules?
I've never done any setups from quite this low a level. I'm used to configuring ifup-eth0 and resolv.conf but I've never had to create devices before. Perhaps this appears very stupid, but I guess these lovely user-friendly installers and netcfg etc leave one missing some info.
