Well, I got nowhere with the acorn stack. Just kept getting that it couldn't find the interface. Tried tried and tried again and it did make the errors different, but there was no sign that I was getting any actual life from the interface.
So went on to Freestack.
Very odd, when I try and get the interface up via:-
ifconfig ep0 inet 10.0.0.2 up
It responds with the red light going out on the interface and the following message:-
Testing individual interrupts........................FAILED
Then if I do it again it crashes the computer.
Intrestingly I think the module must contain the MAC address too as when I use 'epinfo' it shows exactly the same information whether the interface is plugged in or not.
I am guessing these interfaces are a bit of a trick to get up and running!
