I'm trying to do a methodical install (for once). 4.9 from a mini CD.
1st thing, when we get to kernel config menu, visual mode,
no network devices show up active. In the inactive drivers section
i see a little list of only six.
question 1: this is hardly a comprehensive list, is it?
there's no explanation in the handbook why it is so short.
needless to say, my NIC is not included
(as i suppose are many others not included)
in hardware notes, i see my device, a 3c905B, requires xl(4) driver.
the closest of the six i can choose from is a line that says:
NE1000, NE2000,3C503,WE/SMC80xx Ethernet adapters
3C503 requires ed(4) driver
question 2: what do i do now?
