Hi Gary,

See "Support Page : LNE100TX LINUX" & "EtherFast 10/100 LAN Card Linux Support"

It talks about "Linksys network cards use a driver called Tulip" and
"To download the latest version of the Tulip.c driver, go..." at same page.

Also they detail completely the procedure to test and install on a generic
Linux distro.

Also you can find the kernel loadable module at your:

You must tweak your /etc/modules.conf and check for tulip options.
You must check that you have "alias ethx(x=0,1,n) tulip" near the beginning.

Also booting your CD on YaST(1) gives you the opportunity to auto- detect your
Nic and tell you which is the module used looking at "Loaded drivers" in
"Kernel modules" running under Linuxrc.

The SuSE manual you must have details completely the process.

The clue is = tulip.


Best regards,
Eduardo Carriles
