I am, like so many, tired of cleaing windows. I am attempting to convert to DSL on my old reliable AMD K6-500. The problem I am having is DSL not recognizing my Microsoft MN-130 PCI 10/100 Ethernet adaptor. I tried entering <lspci> at the command prompt (trick I saw in another post, I don't know what I am doing). It recognizes that it is a PCI ethernet adaptor from the Microsoft Corp. but no chipset info. Removed card and it has the ADMtek AN983b chip. Can anyone help with this please.

The ADMtek chip appears to be DEC tulip compatible, but Microsoft has changed the MANID number.  There's a hack here to recompile the tulip driver -

but perhaps you could just try to manually load the tulip module -
modprobe tulip

Then run "ifconfig -a" to see if an interface has been created.

Like I said I'm new to this. I tried searching for the tulip driver but most of those directories don't even exist. Found << /lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/net/tulip/tulip.o >> is this what I am looking for? God I'm lost, but at least I know I working towards a Window free goal!
