I'm putting together my 1st embedded linux system
using the 2.4.18 kernel downloaded from

CPU: PowerPC 603E
Bus: PCI
Ethernet Controller: Intel 21143
Serial: Z85233

The software that ran on this hardware most recently
is based on VxWorks 5.3. From its board support package
I gleaned the following.

How do I configure the tulip (21143) and Z85233 drivers
to use this address info ? I know linux drivers are supposed
to do autodetection of hardware but don't they need
some configuration infol ?
