|To ttn1: There's a closeout sale on ISA combo PnP 56k modem and 10BaseT ethernet w/integrated hub, for $17.50 at Halted Specialties. The units are Novaweb 2001 cards, with Rockwell RCVDL56ACFW *hardware* modem, Davicom DM9008F 10BaseT NIC (NE2000) and Am79c894 4-port 10BaseT hub, all integrated on a single half-sized ISA card that fits perfectly in a websurfer, even with a notebook IDE drive installed inside.|
Has anybody successfully set these up under Linux? It would seem to require mucking around with isapnp. The card is near perfect for use with the Websurfer as a dial-up router/firewall. However, I could not see any messages from the BIOS indicating that it had found a plug-and-play card.
I plugged a card into an old 486, and the BIOS PnP recognition worked fine, but I haven't had time to investigate the Linux issues yet.
