Hello All,
After all the struggles to get if_ed.c (arch/i386/isa) into shape,
I ran into yap (yet another problem) Luckeley not al ethernet boards (cards)
are created equal, especially the older ones. Mine is an WD8003EB (sig 0x25)
and still has jumpers for the selection of the bnc/aui connector.
This means: during startup : NET0 corrupt memmory interface complains.
Aparently the try to set the interface blows some config on the wdc 8003.
I have to keep an older kernel running now. 
Guess a table with board/card tables who can set the connector software-
wise is needed during ed_init and ed_attach.
The attach tels me WD8003EB 8bit (bnc)  and i jumpered (2 jumpers) aiu....
Regards, Gerard.
