Re: [linux-tr] IBM Turbo Adapter


The long, 16-bit ISA card that uses the TOKENBM driver is unrelated to the
Shared RAM family of adapters. This is an old IBM Token Ring Network 16/4
Adapter II -- an ISA busmaster adapter!  They are more suited to be
paperweights or doorstops than Token-Ring adapters. :)

So, don't send them to Paul, send them to File 13. :)

We have a lot of IBM Token-Ring adapters around here, but I am not sure
which one is the Turbo. Most of ours are fairly old. Is it the long 16-bit
one that uses TokenBM.COM in DOS?
