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.

Any ideas?

Thanks for any help.
