Did this work before?
One thing which won't work is loading original Linux kernel modules
into L4Linux. From Linux' perspective, L4Linux is a different
architecture, and modules have to be recompiled for L4Linux.
Did you try loading the NE2000 driver as an original Linux kernel
module? In this case, I recommend you compile the driver into your
L4Linux kernel (or as an L4Linux module).
PS: Next week I'll be on vacation, and I won't answer my email. I'll
try to catch up afterwards, so please keep sending in bug reports.
They're appreciated a lot!
