Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!

+You can get the ICN-ISDN-card from:
+
+Thinking Objects Software GmbH
+Versbacher Röthe 159
+97078 Würzburg
+Tel: +49 931 2877950
+Fax: +49 931 2877951
+
+email info@think.de
+WWW http:/www.think.de
+
+
+The card communicates with the PC by two interfaces:
+ 1. A range of 4 successive port-addresses, whose base address can be
+ configured with the switches.
+ 2. A memory window with 16KB-256KB size, which can be setup in 16k steps
+ over the whole range of 16MB. Isdn4linux only uses a 16k window.
+ The base address of the window can be configured when loading
+ the lowlevel-module (see README). If using more than one card,
+ all cards are mapped to the same window and activated as needed.
+
+Setting up the IO-address dipswitches for the ICN-ISDN-card:
+
+ Two types of cards exist, one with dip-switches and one with
+ hook-switches.
+
+ 1. Setting for the card with hook-switches:
+
+ (0 = switch closed, 1 = switch open)
+
+ S3 S2 S1 Base-address
+ 0 0 0 0x300
+ 0 0 1 0x310
+ 0 1 0 0x320 (Default for isdn4linux)
+ 0 1 1 0x330
+ 1 0 0 0x340
+ 1 0 1 0x350
+ 1 1 0 0x360
+ 1 1 1 NOT ALLOWED!
+
+ 2. Setting for the card with dip-switches:
+
+ (0 = switch closed, 1 = switch open)
+
+ S1 S2 S3 S4 Base-Address
+ 0 0 0 0 0x300

+
+The ICN driver may be built into the kernel or as a module. Initialization
+depends on how the driver is built:
+
+Driver built into the kernel:
+
+ The ICN driver can be configured using the commandline-feature while
+ loading the kernel with LILO or LOADLIN. It accepts the following syntax:
+
+ icn=p,m[,idstring1[,idstring2]]
+
+ where
+
+ p = portbase (default: 0x320)
+ m = shared memory (default: 0xd0000)
+
+ When using the ICN double card (4B), you MUST define TWO idstrings.
+ idstring must start with a character! There is no way for the driver
+ to distinguish between a 2B and 4B type card. Therefore, by supplying
+ TWO idstrings, you tell the driver that you have a 4B installed.
+
+ If you like to use more than one card, you can use the program
+ "icnctrl" from the utility-package to configure additional cards.
+ You need to configure shared memory only once, since the icn-driver
+ maps all cards into the same address-space.
+
+ Using the "icnctrl"-utility, portbase and shared memory can also be
+ changed during runtime.
+
+ The D-channel protocol is configured by loading different firmware
+ into the card's memory using the "icnctrl"-utility.
+
+
+Driver built as module:
+
+ The module icn.o can be configured during "insmod'ing" it by
+ appending its parameters to the insmod-commandline. The following
+ syntax is accepted:
+
+ portbase=p membase=m icn_id=idstring [icn_id2=idstring2]
+
+ where p, m, idstring1 and idstring2 have the same meanings as the
+ parameters described for the kernel-version above.
+
+ When using the ICN double card (4B), you MUST define TWO idstrings.
+ idstring must start with a character! There is no way for the driver
+ to distinguish between a 2B and 4B type card. Therefore, by supplying
+ TWO idstrings, you tell the driver that you have a 4B installed.
+
+ Using the "icnctrl"-utility, the same features apply to the modularized
+ version like to the kernel-builtin one.
+
+ The D-channel protocol is configured by loading different firmware
+ into the card's memory using the "icnctrl"-utility.
+
+Loading the firmware into the card:
+
+ The firmware is supplied together with the isdn4k-utils package. It
+ can be found in the subdirectory icnctrl/firmware/
+
+ There are 3 files:
+
+ loadpg.bin - Image of the bootstrap loader.
+ pc_1t_ca.bin - Image of firmware for german 1TR6 protocol.
+ pc_eu_ca.bin - Image if firmware for EDSS1 (Euro-ISDN) protocol.
+
+ Assuming you have installed the utility-package correctly, the firmware
+ will be downloaded into the 2B-card using the following command:
+
+ icnctrl -d Idstring load /etc/isdn/loadpg.bin /etc/isdn/pc_XX_ca.bin
+
+ where XX is either "1t" or "eu", depending on the D-Channel protocol
+ used on your S0-bus and Idstring is the Name of the card, given during
+ insmod-time or (for kernel-builtin driver) on the kernel commandline.
+
+ To load a 4B-card, the same command is used, except a second firmware
+ file is appended to the commandline of icnctrl.
+
+ -> After downloading firmware, the two LEDs at the back cover of the card
+ (ICN-4B: 4 LEDs) must be blinking intermittently now. If a connection
+ is up, the corresponding led is lit continuously.
+
+ For further documentation (adding more ICN-cards), refer to the manpage
+ icnctrl.8 which is included in the isdn4k-utils package.
