Extremely strange, but suddenly the NetBSD 1.6.2 installation kernel 
discoveres the Ether1. I changed nothing, and do not know what the difference 
is. But after configuring the interface it says "no carrier", and the card 
does not work properly in RISC OS either. I am using the AUI port with a 
10base2 transceiver. If I ping from elsewhere to the R260, I can see the 
"receive" LED on the transceiver blink (ok that does not say anything about 
that the R260's IP is known in the network). If I ping from the R260 to 
elsewhere, the "transmit" LED does not blink. Can it be that I need to tell 
the Ether1 to use the AUI port?
