System: NetBSD sinus.cs.uni-bonn.de 1.1 NetBSD 1.1 (INSTOTHER) #0: Fri Nov 24 06:14:06 PST 1995 email@example.com:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/INSTOTHER i386
When booting NetBSD on a machine with a WD8216 card, and the card
was initialized before (e.g., on a reboot, or after some network
stack was installed when running MS-DOS), the card won't be
reboot. watch the config messages. look for the network card.
No fix. You get the card back by using the RESET button, but this isn't an
option for, e.g., routers in a non-accessible (on weekends) room.
