there was one screen that mentioned the cards. gave 4
address ranges for the card; i toook the default of 0x0000.
anybody else on-list have the xircom card working? i'd
be only too pleased if i'm missing some magic incantation
rather than having bought the wrong card...
thanks, and if anyone else has insights, i'd be much obliged
