I think that obscure device is too difficult to deal with in Linux.
It would cost you just a few dollars to replace it with an alternative Cardbus Lan card, or get a USB-LAN dongle instead ...
or forget about ethernet LAN, and get yourself a wifi card.


Ok, I'll consider this option.

Hi tempestuous,

I bought and tested a wifi usb dongle and it worked, but not a hundred percent - after a few minutes the connection is down. Besides this the general performance with this laptop is unsatisfactory. Ok, no problem.

On the other hand, I installed slacko 5.3.3 in a PC DELL (dual boot with win XP) and everything is fine. As a old user of Xenix and Unix I'm very happy using a Unix system in a daily basis again.

Thanks,

Elias
