I had asked a while back how I could get a Powerbook 180 running NetBSD
2.1 connected to my home network. Marc Coevoet replied that there are
SCSI ethernet solutions that are supported. Apparently, my Asante
Micro EN/SC isn't one of them. Adapters that were made by Sonic, Dayna
, and Farallon are. These devices, however, are VERY unavailable now.
What would it take for some smart NetBSD programmer to write a driver
for the Asante EN/SC devices? Source code from Asante? They are under
new (or, old) ownership right now.
I know from reading your daily postings that this is not exactly a hot
issue in the NetBSD/mac68k world at the moment, but it would be great
to hear from someone about it.
