+SMC 9xxxx Driver
+Copyright 1996 Erik Stahlman
+Released under terms of the GNU General Public License.
+This file contains the instructions and caveats for my SMC9xxx driver. You
+should not be using the driver without reading this file.
+Things to note about installation:
+ 1. The driver should work on all kernels from 1.2.13 until 1.3.71.
+ (A kernel patch is supplied for 1.3.71 )
+ 2. If you include this into the kernel, you might need to change some
+ options, such as for forcing IRQ.
+ 3. To compile as a module, run 'make' .
+ Make will give you the appropriate options for various kernel support.
+ 4. Loading the driver as a module :
+ use: insmod smc9194.o
+ optional parameters:
+ io=xxxx : your base address
+ irq=xx : your irq
+ ifport=x : 0 for whatever is default
+ 1 for twisted pair
+ 2 for AUI ( or BNC on some cards )
+How to obtain the latest version?
