Lanaid is only used on adapters that don't have dip switches to configure
them - such as the Auto and Turbo adapters.  Since yours is neither of
these, you probably don't.  Also, if the adapter was working in another OS
and is already configured on that machine, you wouldn't usualy need it

Once the driver it loaded, it will refer to the adapter as tr0.  You
should have gotten some messages when you did the modprobe ibmtr.  You
should be able to see them if you type 'dmesg' as well.  It should say
that an adapter was found, where it is located and its MAC address.

Once you see this information, you can do:

/sbin/ifconfig tr0 x.x.x.x gw y.y.y.y up

where x.x.x.x is your ip address and y.y.y.y is the address of your
default gateway and you should be going.

If modprobe still is not working (or saying that it can't find the module)
try:  /sbin/insmod /lib/modules/2.0.32/net/ibmtr.o

and see what you get with that.
