Question 3com 3c574b on Toshiba Satellite 2655XDVD (RedHat 6.1) 

Forum: 3Com PCMCIA Ethernet Adapter Issues
Date: 2000, Mar 16
From: Peter Cooper pvcooper

Can anyone shed some light on an issue with getting the boot up sequence to work properly. I am unable to get this NIC card working on initial boot up unless I add a pcmcia restart to the rc.local file in redhat6.1. I made sure that the kernel driver, I/O Port and IRQ fields are empty as per the writeup in the PCMCIA-HOWTO. I have included the pertinent entries from the /var/log/messages file. Again the first time the pcmcia card services starts it does not find the NIC card but if I restart the services after or at the end of the boot sequence all is well. Seems to be related to the inability to use high memory on the first try.

Any help is greatly appreciated as Linux is relatively new to me.
