I ordered a new $500 Compaq P/166 from PCMicroWarehouse at 10 PM last night,
it may show as soon as today. This makes for my second test machine, the
first one (386/33) is too bloody slow to long term testing on (in particular,
if it involves a full build).
It's first mission will be to test the network install of -stable.
1) Jordan, got the URL of a boot floppy to launch me, or aren't any built for
the new release yet?
is the newest one available as I write this message; if it takes time
before you use this, try upgrading the date.
2) I'm open to suggestions for a cheap Plug'n'Pray PCI Ethernet card
that I can pick up locally (CompUSA/Computer City). (PNP is now
supported in stable, yes?)
PnP is supported only for a single Ethernet card - the Trust Ethernet
Combo, which is an NE2000 clone. I don't think the code has been
merged to -stable - I wrote it, and I have been having some problems
with that card under -STABLE, so I would really hope not.
So far, the PCI version of the card seem to be running OK. From my
supplier, the PCI version is $2 more expensive than the PnP version,
so it is really a much better buy.
