Does anybody install linux on Compaq 5100 with integrated ethernet
controller? My problem are :
1. If I installed linux on that model without movepci.sys device
driver from Compaq, it worked fine but it could not find the ethernet
2. If I loaded the movepci.sys (i.e. device=c:\movepci.sys), the kernel
panic with tons of errors (address errors).
I used the same procedure on Compaq 5120, and it worked perfectly, the
BIOS version on Compaq 5120 is revision 07/26/95, but on Compaq 5100, the
BIOS revision is after March, 1996.
Thanks for any help.
