  Linux 2.4.x
  ===========

  This document contains instructions on installing Linux driver
  and adjusting speed for D-Link DGE-528T Gigabit Ethernet Adapter

  Installing Driver:
  ------------------
  dge528.c -- DGE-528T Linux driver version 1.6

  1. This driver supports D-Link DGE-528T Gigabit Ethernet Adapter
  for Linux kernel 2.4.x.


  2. Installation steps:
  (1)Compiling dge528.c using 'Makefile'.

  "make"

  <NOTE>Please remember to ASSIGN "NEW_INCLUDE_PATH" in Makefile according to
  linux kernel.

  (2)Move dge528.o to the directory "/lib/modules/<kernel>/kernel/drivers/net".

  "cp dge528.o /lib/modules/<kernel>/kernel/drivers/net"

  where <kernel> represents the kernel version, say 2.4.18-3 in Red Hat 7.3

  (3)Insert module by

  "insmod dge528.o"

  (4)Check driver status

  "dmesg"


  3. The media can be forced to one of the 5 modes as follows.

  Cmd: "insmod dge528 media = SET_MEDIA"
  For example:
  "insmod dge528 media = 0x04" will force PHY to operate in
  100Mpbs Half-duplex.

  SET_MEDIA can be:
  _10_Half = 0x01
  _10_Full = 0x02
  _100_Half = 0x04
  _100_Full = 0x08
  _1000_Full = 0x10


  Force media type for multiple cards could be performed as:

  "insmod dge528 media=0x04,0x10"

  which force PHY to operate at 100Mbps half-duplex and 1000Mbps full-duplex.


  <NOTE> If on Red Hat 7.2, please add two lines to include header files and
  mark one line for timer structure as follows:
    #include <linux/timer.h>
    #include <linux/init.h>
    ..................
    // typedef struct timer_list timer_t
