Got several replies that the iy driver was the thing to use but comments
also that it was not in GENERIC and produced warnings when included.
I edited the source to remove the warnings and build a kernel.
I tested on a older (1.1) system with a 1.2B kernel with iy drivers.
On boot up it probed the iy driver with:
Dec 14 11:10:38 johnhome /netbsd: iy0 at isa0 port 0x210-0x21f irq 9:
address 00:a0:c9:0c:2c:83, chip rev. 1, 32 kB SRAM
When I ifconfiged -a I got some error messages. If I configed the
device ip and netmask 255.255.255.192 suddenly networking stopped (at
least my ppp link was cut off). I reverified this happening.
I updated my system to 2.0 and ifconfig -a still produced error messages
and ifconfig the device stopped networking.
I got current sources for ifconfig and made that and that took care of
the ifconfig -a error messages but networking still was stopped when
I gave the IP and netmask to the device.
I guess the problem is with the driver (or possibly the Etherexpress
pro/10+ may be different than the Etherexpress pro/10).
