16This driver provides kernel support for Davicom DM9102(A)/DM9132/DM9801 ethernet cards ( CNET
1710/100 ethernet cards uses Davicom chipset too, so this driver supports CNET cards too ).If you
18didn't compile this driver as a module, it will automatically load itself on boot and print a
19line similar to :
20
21	dmfe: Davicom DM9xxx net driver, version 1.36.4 (2002-01-17)
22
23If you compiled this driver as a module, you have to load it on boot.You can load it with command :
24
25	insmod dmfe
26
27This way it will autodetect the device mode.This is the suggested way to load the module.Or you can pass
28a mode= setting to module while loading, like :
29
30	insmod dmfe mode=0 # Force 10M Half Duplex
31	insmod dmfe mode=1 # Force 100M Half Duplex
32	insmod dmfe mode=4 # Force 10M Full Duplex
33	insmod dmfe mode=5 # Force 100M Full Duplex
34
35Next you should configure your network interface with a command similar to :
36
37	ifconfig eth0 172.22.3.18
38                      ^^^^^^^^^^^
39		     Your IP Address
40
41Then you may have to modify the default routing table with command :
42
43	route add default eth0
44
45
46Now your ethernet card should be up and running.

49TODO:
50
51Implement pci_driver::suspend() and pci_driver::resume() power management methods.
52Check on 64 bit boxes.
53Check and fix on big endian boxes.
54Test and make sure PCI latency is now correct for all cases.
