A new beta of the ISA drivers has been uploaded to uni-regensburg. It
should end up in experimental soon. For those who are not familiar with
this kit, it's a framework which makes use of bridgecards to access the
ISA slots of your Amiga. Supported bridges are the GoldenGateII (beta),
GoldenGateI (pre-alpha :-) ) and the CrossLink (alpha). Devices in this
kit are the same as earlier: COM ports (both ordinary and such hanging on
the AST multiserial card), LPT ports (both with & without interrupts) and
83*90 ethernet interfaces (like NE000 clones, WD8??3 series and many
3COM cards). You need to be able to compile your own kernel to use this kit.
PS. My wife has a 486 with WfWg 3.11 and a HP laserjet 4L. Yesterday
I tried for the first time to access her shared printer through the
local ethernet of ours. It worked like a charm. I used ghostscript,
Samba (a free Lan-manager software used to talk to WfWg), my ISA-kit,
a GG2 and a NE2000 clone. Really fun!
PPS. WfWg = Windows for Workgroups (it's something they run on IBM-
compatibles, if you ever heard of them?).
