~ z's pc only has one legacy slot (ISA) and that has an slightly older SB Live card in it.
~ so, I try my own station... older pc to start with (P2-400) and it has a few ISA... remove the PCI smc nic and put in the 3com ISA nic... and the nic is dead... lovely.
So after screwing around with disconnecting, reconnecting, opening, closing, booting, configuring and generally messing around... where am I? same place I started... I need to go pick up a pci nic.
