-(2) SUPPORTED ADAPTERS
-======================
-
-The network driver 'skfp' supports the following network adapters:
-SysKonnect adapters:
- - SK-5521 (SK-NET FDDI-UP)
- - SK-5522 (SK-NET FDDI-UP DAS)
- - SK-5541 (SK-NET FDDI-FP)
- - SK-5543 (SK-NET FDDI-LP)
- - SK-5544 (SK-NET FDDI-LP DAS)
- - SK-5821 (SK-NET FDDI-UP64)
- - SK-5822 (SK-NET FDDI-UP64 DAS)
- - SK-5841 (SK-NET FDDI-FP64)
- - SK-5843 (SK-NET FDDI-LP64)
- - SK-5844 (SK-NET FDDI-LP64 DAS)
-Compaq adapters (not tested):
- - Netelligent 100 FDDI DAS Fibre SC
- - Netelligent 100 FDDI SAS Fibre SC
- - Netelligent 100 FDDI DAS UTP
- - Netelligent 100 FDDI SAS UTP
- - Netelligent 100 FDDI SAS Fibre MIC
-***
-
-
-(3) GENERAL INFORMATION
-=======================
-
-From v2.01 on, the driver is integrated in the linux kernel sources.
-Therefore, the installation is the same as for any other adapter
-supported by the kernel.
-Refer to the manual of your distribution about the installation
-of network adapters.
-Makes my life much easier :-)

-
-
-(4) TROUBLESHOOTING
-===================
-
-If you run into problems during installation, check those items:
-
-Problem: The FDDI adapter cannot be found by the driver.
-Reason: Look in /proc/pci for the following entry:
- 'FDDI network controller: SysKonnect SK-FDDI-PCI ...'
- If this entry exists, then the FDDI adapter has been
- found by the system and should be able to be used.
- If this entry does not exist or if the file '/proc/pci'
- is not there, then you may have a hardware problem or PCI
- support may not be enabled in your kernel.
- The adapter can be checked using the diagnostic program
- which is available from the SysKonnect web site:
- www.syskonnect.de
- Some COMPAQ machines have a problem with PCI under
- Linux. This is described in the 'PCI howto' document
- (included in some distributions or available from the
- www, e.g. at 'www.linux.org') and no workaround is available.
-
-Problem: You want to use your computer as a router between
- multiple IP subnetworks (using multiple adapters), but
- you cannot reach computers in other subnetworks.
-Reason: Either the router's kernel is not configured for IP
- forwarding or there is a problem with the routing table
- and gateway configuration in at least one of the
- computers.
-
-If your problem is not listed here, please contact our
-technical support for help.
-You can send email to:
- linux@syskonnect.de
-When contacting our technical support,
-please ensure that the following information is available:
-- System Manufacturer and Model
-- Boards in your system
-- Distribution
-- Kernel version

-(5) FUNCTION OF THE ADAPTER LEDS
-================================
-
- The functionality of the LED's on the FDDI network adapters was
- changed in SMT version v2.82. With this new SMT version, the yellow
- LED works as a ring operational indicator. An active yellow LED
- indicates that the ring is down. The green LED on the adapter now
- works as a link indicator where an active GREEN LED indicates that
- the respective port has a physical connection.
-
- With versions of SMT prior to v2.82 a ring up was indicated if the
- yellow LED was off while the green LED(s) showed the connection
- status of the adapter. During a ring down the green LED was off and
- the yellow LED was on.
-
- All implementations indicate that a driver is not loaded if
- all LEDs are off.
