32-Bit CardBus Fast Ethernet PC Card Installation on Linux

*********  
    First you may download pcmcia-cs-3.1.15.tar.gz from hyper.stanford.edu
    in the /pub/pcmcia directory or from sourceforge.org in /pcmcia
    readme PCMCIA-HOWTO file & install it
    { gzip -d pcmcia-cs-3.1.15.tar.gz
      tar xvf pcmcia-cs-3.1.15.tar     (on /usr/src/linux)      
      cd pcmcia-cs-3.1.15 (now pcmcia-cs-3.1.15 is directory)
      make config
      make all
      make install
    }  
********

1. Compile the source code :
 ->Copy the TAR file "cblinux.tar" to any directory (mcopy a:/linux/cblinux.tar .)
   and execute: tar xvf cblinux.tar
                ./cl8139 (chmod +x cl8139 to change its attribute)
   The directory "pcmcia-cs-3.1.15" stands for the card service version you 
   use. Please change it to the version on your system in order to include 
   proper .h file. The final file is realtek_cb.o

2. Copy driver :
 ->Copy the file "realtek_cb.o" to "/lib/modules/2.2.14/pcmcia" (see your kernel version)

3. Edit config:
 ->Add 5 lines to the file "/etc/pcmcia/config"
   
   #
   # Device driver definitions
   #
  
   device "realtek_cb"					 (==>Add 1/5)
     class "network" module "cb_enabler", "realtek_cb"   (==>Add 2/5) 


   :
   :

   #
   # CardBus Cards
   #

   card "32-Bit CardBus Fast Ethernet PC Card"		(==>Add 3/5)
     manfid 0x0000, 0x024C				(==>Add 4/5)
     bind "realtek_cb"					(==>Add 5/5)

   
   The values 0x0000, 0x024C are JEDEC ID and can be read by typing 
   "cardctl ident" on console with one card on socket.
	          

4. Modify the file "network.opts" in /etc/pcmcia as follow example.

            case "$ADDRESS" in
            *,0,*,*)
                  #  0 ,definitions for network card in socket 0
                  # if 1 ,definition for network card in socket 1
                  BOOTP="n"
                  DHCP="n"
                  IPADDR="210.243.140.66"    
                  NETMASK="255.255.255.0"
                  NETWORK="210.243.140.0"
                  BROADCAST="210.243.140.255"
                  GATEWAY="210.243.140.1"
                  ;;
            esac
            
5. Edit linuxconf (Red Hat Linux)
 ->Type "linuxconf" and choose "Config"-->"Networking"-->"Client tasks"-->
   "Basic host information". Select an adapter, enable it, and type "realtek_cb"
   on "Kernel module" and "eth0" (or eth1, eth2) on "Net device". Click on 
   "Accept" button and "Act/change" button.


6. Restart the computer.
