I thought the Ether1 does not have a PROM? I read somewhere that it can not be 
idetified by executing "podules" in RISC OS. I am not completely sure if it 
works under RISC OS. "e1info" discoveres that it is in slot 0 and has a 
hardware address of 00:00:a4:00:04:ec. "ifconfig -a" shows some stuff about 
the et0 interface. I can ping the address associated to the et0, but not 
addresses outside which is strange. It is connected to a twisted pair network 
via a transceiver at the AUI port.
