hi all

I make all that i can do to start my nic card and it impossible
If i do cat /proc/irq i dont see the irq 11 used

In /etc/modprobe.conf i got

alias eth0 3c509
option 3C509 io=0x300 irq=11

The card is not in Pn'P mode. I configure it manualy with the
good values. and it work fine with NT and W98 as this
thanks for your replie

Try this - change option to options, then run:
depmod -a
rmmod 3c509
modprobe 3c509

Running "depmod -a" tells the system about the changes in
modprobe.conf. You then have to remove the module, and
reload it to get it loaded with the new options.

You will not see IRQ 11 used in /proc/irq until there is a driver
loaded that is using it. It is not a list of IRQs used by hardware.
It is a list of IRQs that have drivers tied to them.

hi all
thanks for your help.
now it work fine
