Hi Lucien,

Additional, i gave the links to ingo too, he will now also re-publish =
I hope the image and aditional kernel-files/configs for own
netboot-enviroments will now be online soon.

In the Kernel, i added EX as device-driver; as far as i know all
3Com/Vortex-Cards e.g. 3C905xxx and 3C59xxx should work. I did testing =
3c905B and 3c905C. Ray Dekens from this list did testing too; but i =
remember with what type of 3Com-Cards. Maybe he is still on the list and
could write it here( huhu Ray :) ).

Hope it will work for u, too=20

So long,


P.s.: sorry for my late reaction on your questions earlyer this year; at =
moment i am using my Raqs (1&2) and one Qube2-systems with debian-woody =
sarge; thefore qube2700-NetBSD has not the priority for me at the moment =

Axel, Chris, et al,
Any update on this? I can probably find some storage space to host the =
least for awhile.

Axel: What 3Com NICs are supported by the kernel you have?
