Ok, it looks like I may have found just the article I need.


I'm also on my laptop and in the CoCo Cafe at www.coco3.com if 
someone wants to see me get excited if this works, or wants to help 
if it doesn't?

I've set up my network to use the tulip driver and IRQ 10 and am now 
rebooting Linux.  I'm connected to my router which is on the web or I 
wouldn't be sending this e-mail. :)  .... so Cross yer fingers!
