Ok, I finally found the right drivers, but now it asks me for I/O adressing and IRQ. I researched a little and found that 0x300 is default for the i/o for the card and default irq is 10. I used those settings, then restarted, then went into the control pannel-network-services and installed the right services then in the protocols tab, I configured the tcp/ip to fit my router. Then I restarted again in hope that it work. But when I pinged my router it timed out all four times, and the internet doesn't work. I noticed that when I used to have windows 98 installed on the same computer with the same network card, the connector light turns on when the card is installed and working. 98 configured everything automatically for me. But the connector light is on when NT is at the blue loading screen, but at the login screen, it turns off. I think that I might need to get a program that will make the light turn on, and make the card work.
Also in control pannel-pc card now the card shows up with a big yellow question mark.
Torvalds was contemptuous of Microsoft's claims and has asked Redmond to name the patent infringements so that their veracity can be challenged and workarounds found.
"Naming them would either make it clear that Linux is not infringing at all (which is quite possible, especially if the patents are bad), or would make it possible to avoid infringing by coding around whatever silly thing they claim,"
"So the whole 'We have a list and we're not telling you' should tell you something. Don't you think that if Microsoft actually had some really foolproof patent, they'd just tell us and go, 'nyaah, nyaah, nyaah!'?"
