The Intel eeG driver has been tested on SCO OpenServer* version
5.0.7. It is also supported on versions 5.0.5 and 5.0.6.
For UNIX support or for updated drivers, please contact the
operating system vendor.
Instructions for Installing the eeG Driver for SCO OpenServer
1. Copy the eeG.vol file to any directory, say /tmp,
on the SCO system, renaming the file as VOL.000.000. Also, make
the file read-only by using 'chmod'.
# cp eeG.vol /tmp/VOL.000.000
# chmod 444 /tmp/VOL.000.000
2. If there is an older version of the eeG driver on the system, you
must first remove it. To do this, run 'netconfig'. Remove all
instances of the "Intel PRO/1000..." adapters. Exit netconfig
without opting to relink the kernel. Next, run 'custom' and
remove the previous "Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Drivers" version.
3. Install the new driver using 'custom'. When asked for the
installation media, choose 'media images', and type the directory
path to the VOL.000.000 file. (In step 1, if you copied it to
/tmp, type '/tmp'). After the installation of the driver is
complete, exit 'custom'.
4. Run 'netconfig' and add the adapters. For each adapter that is
present in the system, enter the appropriate TCP/IP parameters.
By default, the driver automatically detects the line speed and
duplex mode. If you want to force any of these settings, choose
'Advanced Options' and set the speed and duplex modes. Exit
'netconfig' and choose to relink the kernel.
5. Reboot the system.
This driver supports 82544, 82540, 82545, 82546, 82541, and 82547 MAC based
devices. Legacy adapters based on the 82542 and 82543 MAC controllers are NOT
supported by this driver.
If any of these legacy devices, or any other devices are recognized by this
driver, it is advised NOT to configure them.
