Subject[PATCH] Documentation/Changes & hunting
Included some info on things needed to compile 2.4.2-ac16.   Feel free to
further edit and comment. Patched against -ac16. [linux = ac16; my
edited version is ac14].

I have to keep up with the kernel as a small 3c509 ethernet problem has
appeared, just gotta hunt it down. 2.2.17-14 works from Redhat but moving
into the 2.4.2 both cards come up and with the right hardware irq/ioport
allocation & ifconfig can set an address, but the card fails to bring up a
signal on the hub -- its very odd. So, I'm looking over the code between
2.2.17-14 from RH and the 2.4.2 series. Here is the patch...cc: to the
maintainer as well.
