I have the following:

"IBM 16/4 ISA Token Ring card (16bit)"

"Dead in the water".  The card has worked on same computer when it was
running Win95 so I don't think I need to configure the BIOS.  Correct me if
I'm wrong, but lanaid is a configuration diskette?  Where can I get it for
Linux?  (I'm checking out the IBM site now...)

What about the fact that it can't find the 'tr0' module?  Is it a link to
ibmtk somehow?
