I applied the patches to 2.2.8, worked cleanly.. However I have another
problem (but don't we all).

I can't seem to get anything to use the driver. 'ifconfig' says it's there,
but I can't bind anything to it.

The card in question is an IBM High-Speed 100/16/4 token-Ring PCI. I don't
have an actual ring here (this machine is going to be in one, but isn't
currently). I've got a loopback installed in the 100, but I can guess that

a single machine ring to test it, or actually drop it in a ring.

2> I'll need to force the driver to use 100 (which I don't even know if it
supports) and do the same as in #1. From what I've read, it only allows
16/4 to be passed to it.

Any ideas/Thoughts/patches you want me to test cos I have one of these cards?

(BTW: We'll have 2 of these machines using the same setup. So when the
other machine arrives, I can do some end-end testing between them if that
