+INTRODUCTION TO ARCNET
+----------------------
+
+ARCnet is a network type which works in a way similar to popular Ethernet
+networks but which is also different in some very important ways.
+
+First of all, you can get ARCnet cards in at least two speeds: 2.5 Mbps
+(slower than Ethernet) and 100 Mbps (faster than normal Ethernet). In fact,
+there are others as well, but these are less common. The different hardware
+types, as far as I'm aware, are not compatible and so you cannot wire a
+100 Mbps card to a 2.5 Mbps card, and so on. From what I hear, my driver does
+work with 100 Mbps cards, but I haven't been able to verify this myself,
+since I only have the 2.5 Mbps variety. It is probably not going to saturate
+your 100 Mbps card. Stop complaining. :)
+
+You also cannot connect an ARCnet card to any kind of Ethernet card and
+expect it to work.
+
+There are two "types" of ARCnet - STAR topology and BUS topology. This
+refers to how the cards are meant to be wired together. According to most
+available documentation, you can only connect STAR cards to STAR cards and
+BUS cards to BUS cards. That makes sense, right? Well, it's not quite
+true; see below under "Cabling."
+
+Once you get past these little stumbling blocks, ARCnet is actually quite a
+well-designed standard. It uses something called "modified token passing"
+which makes it completely incompatible with so-called "Token Ring" cards,
+but which makes transfers much more reliable than Ethernet does. In fact,
+ARCnet will guarantee that a packet arrives safely at the destination, and
+even if it can't possibly be delivered properly (ie. because of a cable
+break, or because the destination computer does not exist) it will at least
+tell the sender about it.
+
+Because of the carefully defined action of the "token", it will always make
+a pass around the "ring" within a maximum length of time. This makes it
+useful for realtime networks.
+
+In addition, all known ARCnet cards have an (almost) identical programming
+interface. This means that with one ARCnet driver you can support any
+card, whereas with Ethernet each manufacturer uses what is sometimes a
+completely different programming interface, leading to a lot of different,
+sometimes very similar, Ethernet drivers. Of course, always using the same
+programming interface also means that when high-performance hardware
+facilities like PCI bus mastering DMA appear, it's hard to take advantage of
+them. Let's not go into that.
+
+One thing that makes ARCnet cards difficult to program for, however, is the
+limit on their packet sizes; standard ARCnet can only send packets that are
+up to 508 bytes in length. This is smaller than the Internet "bare minimum"
+of 576 bytes, let alone the Ethernet MTU of 1500. To compensate, an extra
+level of encapsulation is defined by RFC1201, which I call "packet
+splitting," that allows "virtual packets" to grow as large as 64K each,
+although they are generally kept down to the Ethernet-style 1500 bytes.
+
+For more information on the advantages and disadvantages (mostly the
+advantages) of ARCnet networks, you might try the "ARCnet Trade Association"

+CABLING ARCNET NETWORKS
+-----------------------
+
+This section was rewritten by
+ Vojtech Pavlik <vojtech@suse.cz>
+using information from several people, including:
+ Avery Pennraun <apenwarr@worldvisions.ca>
+ Stephen A. Wood <saw@hallc1.cebaf.gov>
+ John Paul Morrison <jmorriso@bogomips.ee.ubc.ca>
+ Joachim Koenig <jojo@repas.de>
+and Avery touched it up a bit, at Vojtech's request.
+
+ARCnet (the classic 2.5 Mbps version) can be connected by two different
+types of cabling: coax and twisted pair. The other ARCnet-type networks
+(100 Mbps TCNS and 320 kbps - 32 Mbps ARCnet Plus) use different types of
+cabling (Type1, Fiber, C1, C4, C5).
+
+For a coax network, you "should" use 93 Ohm RG-62 cable. But other cables
+also work fine, because ARCnet is a very stable network. I personally use 75
+Ohm TV antenna cable.
+
+Cards for coax cabling are shipped in two different variants: for BUS and
+STAR network topologies. They are mostly the same. The only difference
+lies in the hybrid chip installed. BUS cards use high impedance output,
+while STAR use low impedance. Low impedance card (STAR) is electrically
+equal to a high impedance one with a terminator installed.
+
+Usually, the ARCnet networks are built up from STAR cards and hubs. There
+are two types of hubs - active and passive. Passive hubs are small boxes
+with four BNC connectors containing four 47 Ohm resistors:
+
+ | | wires
+ R + junction
+-R-+-R- R 47 Ohm resistors
+ R
+ |
+
+The shielding is connected together. Active hubs are much more complicated;
+they are powered and contain electronics to amplify the signal and send it
+to other segments of the net. They usually have eight connectors. Active
+hubs come in two variants - dumb and smart. The dumb variant just
+amplifies, but the smart one decodes to digital and encodes back all packets
+coming through. This is much better if you have several hubs in the net,
+since many dumb active hubs may worsen the signal quality.
+
+And now to the cabling. What you can connect together:
+
+1. A card to a card. This is the simplest way of creating a 2-computer
+ network.
+
+2. A card to a passive hub. Remember that all unused connectors on the hub
+ must be properly terminated with 93 Ohm (or something else if you don't
+ have the right ones) terminators.
+ (Avery's note: oops, I didn't know that. Mine (TV cable) works
+ anyway, though.)
+
+3. A card to an active hub. Here is no need to terminate the unused
+ connectors except some kind of aesthetic feeling. But, there may not be
+ more than eleven active hubs between any two computers. That of course
+ doesn't limit the number of active hubs on the network.
+
+4. An active hub to another.
+
+5. An active hub to passive hub.
+
+Remember that you cannot connect two passive hubs together. The power loss
+implied by such a connection is too high for the net to operate reliably.
+
+An example of a typical ARCnet network:
+
+ R S - STAR type card
+ S------H--------A-------S R - Terminator
+ | | H - Hub
+ | | A - Active hub
+ | S----H----S
+ S |
+ |
+ S
+
+The BUS topology is very similar to the one used by Ethernet. The only
+difference is in cable and terminators: they should be 93 Ohm. Ethernet
+uses 50 Ohm impedance. You use T connectors to put the computers on a single
+line of cable, the bus. You have to put terminators at both ends of the
+cable. A typical BUS ARCnet network looks like:
+
+ RT----T------T------T------T------TR
+ B B B B B B
+
+ B - BUS type card
+ R - Terminator
+ T - T connector
+
+But that is not all! The two types can be connected together. According to
+the official documentation the only way of connecting them is using an active
+hub:
+
+ A------T------T------TR
+ | B B B
+ S---H---S
+ |
+ S
+
+The official docs also state that you can use STAR cards at the ends of
+BUS network in place of a BUS card and a terminator:
+
+ S------T------T------S
+ B B
+
+But, according to my own experiments, you can simply hang a BUS type card
+anywhere in middle of a cable in a STAR topology network. And more - you
+can use the bus card in place of any star card if you use a terminator. Then
+you can build very complicated networks fulfilling all your needs! An
+example:
+
+ S
+ |
+ RT------T-------T------H------S
+ B B B |
+ | R
+ S------A------T-------T-------A-------H------TR
+ | B B | | B
+ | S BT |
+ | | | S----A-----S
+ S------H---A----S | |
+ | | S------T----H---S |
+ S S B R S
+
+A basically different cabling scheme is used with Twisted Pair cabling. Each
+of the TP cards has two RJ (phone-cord style) connectors. The cards are
+then daisy-chained together using a cable connecting every two neighboring
+cards. The ends are terminated with RJ 93 Ohm terminators which plug into
+the empty connectors of cards on the ends of the chain. An example:
+
+ ___________ ___________
+ _R_|_ _|_|_ _|_R_
+ | | | | | |
+ |Card | |Card | |Card |
+ |_____| |_____| |_____|
+
+
+There are also hubs for the TP topology. There is nothing difficult
+involved in using them; you just connect a TP chain to a hub on any end or
+even at both. This way you can create almost any network configuration.
+The maximum of 11 hubs between any two computers on the net applies here as
+well. An example:
+
+ RP-------P--------P--------H-----P------P-----PR
+ |
+ RP-----H--------P--------H-----P------PR
+ | |
+ PR PR
+
+ R - RJ Terminator
+ P - TP Card
+ H - TP Hub
+
+Like any network, ARCnet has a limited cable length. These are the maximum
+cable lengths between two active ends (an active end being an active hub or
+a STAR card).
+
+ RG-62 93 Ohm up to 650 m
+ RG-59/U 75 Ohm up to 457 m
+ RG-11/U 75 Ohm up to 533 m
+ IBM Type 1 150 Ohm up to 200 m
+ IBM Type 3 100 Ohm up to 100 m
+
+The maximum length of all cables connected to a passive hub is limited to 65
+meters for RG-62 cabling; less for others. You can see that using passive
+hubs in a large network is a bad idea. The maximum length of a single "BUS
+Trunk" is about 300 meters for RG-62. The maximum distance between the two
+most distant points of the net is limited to 3000 meters. The maximum length
+of a TP cable between two cards/hubs is 650 meters.
+
+
+SETTING THE JUMPERS
+-------------------
+
+All ARCnet cards should have a total of four or five different settings:
+
+ - the I/O address: this is the "port" your ARCnet card is on. Probed
+ values in the Linux ARCnet driver are only from 0x200 through 0x3F0. (If
+ your card has additional ones, which is possible, please tell me.) This
+ should not be the same as any other device on your system. According to
+ a doc I got from Novell, MS Windows prefers values of 0x300 or more,
+ eating net connections on my system (at least) otherwise. My guess is
+ this may be because, if your card is at 0x2E0, probing for a serial port
+ at 0x2E8 will reset the card and probably mess things up royally.
+ - Avery's favourite: 0x300.
+
+ - the IRQ: on 8-bit cards, it might be 2 (9), 3, 4, 5, or 7.
+ on 16-bit cards, it might be 2 (9), 3, 4, 5, 7, or 10-15.
+
+ Make sure this is different from any other card on your system. Note
+ that IRQ2 is the same as IRQ9, as far as Linux is concerned. You can
+ "cat /proc/interrupts" for a somewhat complete list of which ones are in
+ use at any given time. Here is a list of common usages from Vojtech
+ Pavlik <vojtech@suse.cz>:
+ ("Not on bus" means there is no way for a card to generate this
+ interrupt)
+ IRQ 0 - Timer 0 (Not on bus)
+ IRQ 1 - Keyboard (Not on bus)
+ IRQ 2 - IRQ Controller 2 (Not on bus, nor does interrupt the CPU)
+ IRQ 3 - COM2
+ IRQ 4 - COM1
+ IRQ 5 - FREE (LPT2 if you have it; sometimes COM3; maybe PLIP)
+ IRQ 6 - Floppy disk controller
+ IRQ 7 - FREE (LPT1 if you don't use the polling driver; PLIP)
+ IRQ 8 - Realtime Clock Interrupt (Not on bus)
+ IRQ 9 - FREE (VGA vertical sync interrupt if enabled)
+ IRQ 10 - FREE
+ IRQ 11 - FREE
+ IRQ 12 - FREE
+ IRQ 13 - Numeric Coprocessor (Not on bus)
+ IRQ 14 - Fixed Disk Controller
+ IRQ 15 - FREE (Fixed Disk Controller 2 if you have it)
+
+ Note: IRQ 9 is used on some video cards for the "vertical retrace"
+ interrupt. This interrupt would have been handy for things like
+ video games, as it occurs exactly once per screen refresh, but
+ unfortunately IBM cancelled this feature starting with the original
+ VGA and thus many VGA/SVGA cards do not support it. For this
+ reason, no modern software uses this interrupt and it can almost
+ always be safely disabled, if your video card supports it at all.
+
+ If your card for some reason CANNOT disable this IRQ (usually there
+ is a jumper), one solution would be to clip the printed circuit
+ contact on the board: it's the fourth contact from the left on the
+ back side. I take no responsibility if you try this.
+
+ - Avery's favourite: IRQ2 (actually IRQ9). Watch that VGA, though.
+
+ - the memory address: Unlike most cards, ARCnets use "shared memory" for
+ copying buffers around. Make SURE it doesn't conflict with any other
+ used memory in your system!
+ A0000 - VGA graphics memory (ok if you don't have VGA)
+ B0000 - Monochrome text mode
+ C0000 \ One of these is your VGA BIOS - usually C0000.
+ E0000 /
+ F0000 - System BIOS
+
+ Anything less than 0xA0000 is, well, a BAD idea since it isn't above
+ 640k.
+ - Avery's favourite: 0xD0000
+
+ - the station address: Every ARCnet card has its own "unique" network
+ address from 0 to 255. Unlike Ethernet, you can set this address
+ yourself with a jumper or switch (or on some cards, with special
+ software). Since it's only 8 bits, you can only have 254 ARCnet cards
+ on a network. DON'T use 0 or 255, since these are reserved (although
+ neat stuff will probably happen if you DO use them). By the way, if you
+ haven't already guessed, don't set this the same as any other ARCnet on
+ your network!
+ - Avery's favourite: 3 and 4. Not that it matters.
+
+ - There may be ETS1 and ETS2 settings. These may or may not make a
+ difference on your card (many manuals call them "reserved"), but are
+ used to change the delays used when powering up a computer on the
+ network. This is only necessary when wiring VERY long range ARCnet
+ networks, on the order of 4km or so; in any case, the only real
+ requirement here is that all cards on the network with ETS1 and ETS2
+ jumpers have them in the same position. Chris Hindy <chrish@io.org>
+ sent in a chart with actual values for this:
+ ET1 ET2 Response Time Reconfiguration Time
+ --- --- ------------- --------------------
+ open open 74.7us 840us
+ open closed 283.4us 1680us
+ closed open 561.8us 1680us
+ closed closed 1118.6us 1680us
+
+ Make sure you set ETS1 and ETS2 to the SAME VALUE for all cards on your
+ network.
+
+Also, on many cards (not mine, though) there are red and green LED's.
+Vojtech Pavlik <vojtech@suse.cz> tells me this is what they mean:
+ GREEN RED Status
+ ----- --- ------
+ OFF OFF Power off
+ OFF Short flashes Cabling problems (broken cable or not
+ terminated)
+ OFF (short) ON Card init
+ ON ON Normal state - everything OK, nothing
+ happens
+ ON Long flashes Data transfer
+ ON OFF Never happens (maybe when wrong ID)
+
+
+The following is all the specific information people have sent me about
+their own particular ARCnet cards. It is officially a mess, and contains
+huge amounts of duplicated information. I have no time to fix it. If you
+want to, PLEASE DO! Just send me a 'diff -u' of all your changes.
+
+The model # is listed right above specifics for that card, so you should be
+able to use your text viewer's "search" function to find the entry you want.
+If you don't KNOW what kind of card you have, try looking through the
+various diagrams to see if you can tell.
+
+If your model isn't listed and/or has different settings, PLEASE PLEASE
+tell me. I had to figure mine out without the manual, and it WASN'T FUN!
+
+Even if your ARCnet model isn't listed, but has the same jumpers as another
+model that is, please e-mail me to say so.

+
+
+Setting the Timeouts and Interrupt
+----------------------------------
+
+The jumpers labeled EXT1 and EXT2 are used to determine the timeout
+parameters. These two jumpers are normally left open.
+
+To select a hardware interrupt level set one (only one!) of the jumpers
+IRQ2, IRQ3, IRQ4, IRQ5, IRQ7. The Manufacturer's default is IRQ2.

+ - The long board has no Shared memory.
+ - On the long board the selection of the interrupt is done by binary
+ coded switch, on the short board directly by jumper.
+
+[Avery's note: pay special attention to that: the long board HAS NO SHARED

+
+Setting the Node ID
+-------------------
+
+The eight switches in group SW3 are used to set the node ID. Each node
+attached to the network must have an unique node ID which must be
+different from 0.
+Switch 1 serves as the least significant bit (LSB).
+
+The node ID is the sum of the values of all switches set to "1"
+These values are:
+
+ Switch | Value

+
+The first six switches in switch group SW1 are used to select one
+of 32 possible I/O Base addresses using the following table
+
+ Switch | Hex I/O
+ 6 5 4 3 2 1 | Address

+
+Setting the Interrupt
+---------------------
+
+Switches seven through ten of switch group SW1 are used to select the
+interrupt level. The interrupt level is binary coded, so selections
+from 0 to 15 would be possible, but only the following eight values will
+be supported: 3, 4, 5, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12.
+
+ Switch | IRQ
+ 10 9 8 7 |
+ ---------|--------
+ 0 0 1 1 | 3
+ 0 1 0 0 | 4
+ 0 1 0 1 | 5
+ 0 1 1 1 | 7
+ 1 0 0 1 | 9 (=2) (default)
+ 1 0 1 0 | 10
+ 1 0 1 1 | 11
+ 1 1 0 0 | 12
+
+
+Setting the Timeouts
+--------------------
+
+The two jumpers JP2 (1-4) are used to determine the timeout parameters.
+These two jumpers are normally left open.
+Refer to the COM9026 Data Sheet for alternate configurations.
+
+
+Configuring the PC500 for Star or Bus Topology
+----------------------------------------------
+
+The single jumper labeled JP6 is used to configure the PC500 board for
+star or bus topology.
+When the jumper is installed, the board may be used in a star network, when
+it is removed, the board can be used in a bus topology.
+
+
+Diagnostic LEDs
+---------------
+
+Two diagnostic LEDs are visible on the rear bracket of the board.
+The green LED monitors the network activity: the red one shows the

+
+Note: this data is gathered by experimenting and looking at info of other
+cards. However, I'm sure I got 99% of the settings right.
+
+The SMC710 card resembles the PC270 card, but is much more basic (i.e. no
+LEDs, RJ11 jacks, etc.) and 8 bit. Here's a little drawing:

+
+The row of jumpers at JP1 actually consists of 8 jumpers, (sometimes
+labelled) the same as on the PC270, from top to bottom: EXT2, EXT1, ROM,
+IRQ7, IRQ5, IRQ4, IRQ3, IRQ2 (gee, wonder what they would do? :-) )
+
+S1 and S2 perform the same function as on the PC270, only their numbers
+are swapped (S1 is the nodeaddress, S2 sets IO- and RAM-address).
+
+I know it works when connected to a PC110 type ARCnet board.

+PDI507 (8-bit card)
+--------------------
+ - from Mark Rejhon <mdrejhon@magi.com> (slight modifications by Avery)
+ - Avery's note: I think PDI508 cards (but definitely NOT PDI508Plus cards)
+ are mostly the same as this. PDI508Plus cards appear to be mainly
+ software-configured.
+
+Jumpers:
+ There is a jumper array at the bottom of the card, near the edge
+ connector. This array is labelled J1. They control the IRQs and
+ something else. Put only one jumper on the IRQ pins.
+
+ ETS1, ETS2 are for timing on very long distance networks. See the
+ more general information near the top of this file.
+
+ There is a J2 jumper on two pins. A jumper should be put on them,
+ since it was already there when I got the card. I don't know what
+ this jumper is for though.
+
+ There is a two-jumper array for J3. I don't know what it is for,
+ but there were already two jumpers on it when I got the card. It's
+ a six pin grid in a two-by-three fashion. The jumpers were
+ configured as follows:
+
+ .-------.
+ o | o o |
+ :-------: ------> Accessible end of card with connectors
+ o | o o | in this direction ------->

+
+ - If using coax cable in a bus topology the J4 jumper must be removed;
+ place it on one pin.
+
+ - If using bus topology with twisted pair wiring move the J3
+ jumpers so they connect the middle pin and the pins closest to the RJ11
+ Connectors. Also the J4 jumper must be removed; place it on one pin of
+ J4 jumper for storage.
+
+ - If using star topology with twisted pair wiring move the J3
+ jumpers so they connect the middle pin and the pins closest to the RJ11
+ connectors.
+
+
+DIP Switches:
+
+ The DIP switches accessible on the accessible end of the card while
+ it is installed, is used to set the ARCnet address. There are 8
+ switches. Use an address from 1 to 254.
+
+ Switch No.
+ 12345678 ARCnet address
+ -----------------------------------------
+ 00000000 FF (Don't use this!)
+ 00000001 FE
+ 00000010 FD
+ ....
+ 11111101 2
+ 11111110 1
+ 11111111 0 (Don't use this!)
+
+ There is another array of eight DIP switches at the top of the
+ card. There are five labelled MS0-MS4 which seem to control the
+ memory address, and another three labelled IO0-IO2 which seem to
+ control the base I/O address of the card.
+
+ This was difficult to test by trial and error, and the I/O addresses
+ are in a weird order. This was tested by setting the DIP switches,
+ rebooting the computer, and attempting to load ARCETHER at various
+ addresses (mostly between 0x200 and 0x400). The address that caused
+ the red transmit LED to blink, is the one that I thought works.
+
+ Also, the address 0x3D0 seem to have a special meaning, since the
+ ARCETHER packet driver loaded fine, but without the red LED
+ blinking. I don't know what 0x3D0 is for though. I recommend using
+ an address of 0x300 since Windows may not like addresses below
+ 0x300.
+
+ IO Switch No.
+ 210 I/O address
+ -------------------------------
+ 111 0x260
+ 110 0x290
+ 101 0x2E0
+ 100 0x2F0
+ 011 0x300
+ 010 0x350
+ 001 0x380
+ 000 0x3E0
+
+ The memory switches set a reserved address space of 0x1000 bytes
+ (0x100 segment units, or 4k). For example if I set an address of
+ 0xD000, it will use up addresses 0xD000 to 0xD100.
+
+ The memory switches were tested by booting using QEMM386 stealth,
+ and using LOADHI to see what address automatically became excluded
+ from the upper memory regions, and then attempting to load ARCETHER
+ using these addresses.
+
+ I recommend using an ARCnet memory address of 0xD000, and putting
+ the EMS page frame at 0xC000 while using QEMM stealth mode. That
+ way, you get contiguous high memory from 0xD100 almost all the way
+ the end of the megabyte.
+
+ Memory Switch 0 (MS0) didn't seem to work properly when set to OFF
+ on my card. It could be malfunctioning on my card. Experiment with
+ it ON first, and if it doesn't work, set it to OFF. (It may be a
+ modifier for the 0x200 bit?)
+
+ MS Switch No.
+ 43210 Memory address
+ --------------------------------
+ 00001 0xE100 (guessed - was not detected by QEMM)
+ 00011 0xE000 (guessed - was not detected by QEMM)
+ 00101 0xDD00

+
+
+Setting the Node ID
+-------------------
+
+The eight switches in SW2 are used to set the node ID. Each node attached
+to the network must have an unique node ID which must be different from 0.
+Switch 1 (ID0) serves as the least significant bit (LSB).
+
+The node ID is the sum of the values of all switches set to "1"
+These values are:
+
+ Switch | Label | Value
+ -------|-------|-------
+ 1 | ID0 | 1
+ 2 | ID1 | 2
+ 3 | ID2 | 4
+ 4 | ID3 | 8
+ 5 | ID4 | 16
+ 6 | ID5 | 32
+ 7 | ID6 | 64
+ 8 | ID7 | 128
+
+Some Examples:
+
+ Switch | Hex | Decimal
+ 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 | Node ID | Node ID
+ ----------------|---------|---------

+ 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 | FF | 255
+
+
+Setting the I/O Base Address
+----------------------------
+
+The last three switches in switch block SW1 are used to select one
+of eight possible I/O Base addresses using the following table
+
+
+ Switch | Hex I/O
+ 6 7 8 | Address
+ ------------|--------
+ ON ON ON | 260
+ OFF ON ON | 290
+ ON OFF ON | 2E0 (Manufacturer's default)
+ OFF OFF ON | 2F0
+ ON ON OFF | 300
+ OFF ON OFF | 350
+ ON OFF OFF | 380
+ OFF OFF OFF | 3E0
+
+
+Setting the Base Memory (RAM) buffer Address
+--------------------------------------------
+
+The memory buffer (RAM) requires 2K. The base of this buffer can be
+located in any of eight positions. The address of the Boot Prom is
+memory base + 8K or memory base + 0x2000.
+Switches 1-5 of switch block SW1 select the Memory Base address.
+
+ Switch | Hex RAM | Hex ROM
+ 1 2 3 4 5 | Address | Address *)
+ --------------------|---------|-----------
+ ON ON ON ON ON | C0000 | C2000
+ ON ON OFF ON ON | C4000 | C6000
+ ON ON ON OFF ON | CC000 | CE000
+ ON ON OFF OFF ON | D0000 | D2000 (Manufacturer's default)
+ ON ON ON ON OFF | D4000 | D6000
+ ON ON OFF ON OFF | D8000 | DA000
+ ON ON ON OFF OFF | DC000 | DE000
+ ON ON OFF OFF OFF | E0000 | E2000
+
+*) To enable the Boot ROM install the jumper JP1
+
+Note: Since the switches 1 and 2 are always set to ON it may be possible
+ that they can be used to add an offset of 2K, 4K or 6K to the base
+ address, but this feature is not documented in the manual and I
+ haven't tested it yet.
+
+
+Setting the Interrupt Line
+--------------------------
+
+To select a hardware interrupt level install one (only one!) of the jumpers
+JP2, JP3, JP4, JP5, JP6. JP2 is the default.
+
+ Jumper | IRQ
+ -------|-----
+ 2 | 2
+ 3 | 3
+ 4 | 4
+ 5 | 5

+
+
+Setting the Internal Terminator on CN120AB/TP/SBT
+--------------------------------------------------
+
+The jumper JP12 is used to enable the internal terminator.
+
+ -----
+ 0 | 0 |
+ ----- ON | | ON
+ | 0 | | 0 |
+ | | OFF ----- OFF

+
+Setting the I/O Base Address
+----------------------------
+
+The first six switches in switch block SW1 are used to select the I/O Base
+address using the following table:
+
+ Switch | Hex I/O
+ 1 2 3 4 5 6 | Address
+ ------------------------|--------
+ OFF ON ON OFF OFF ON | 260
+ OFF ON OFF ON ON OFF | 290

+ OFF OFF OFF ON ON ON | 380
+ OFF OFF OFF OFF OFF ON | 3E0
+
+Note: Other IO-Base addresses seem to be selectable, but only the above
+ combinations are documented.
+
+
+Setting the Base Memory (RAM) buffer Address
+--------------------------------------------
+
+The switches 7-10 of switch block SW1 are used to select the Memory
+Base address of the RAM (2K) and the PROM.
+
+ Switch | Hex RAM | Hex ROM
+ 7 8 9 10 | Address | Address
+ ----------------|---------|-----------
+ OFF OFF ON ON | C0000 | C8000
+ OFF OFF ON OFF | D0000 | D8000 (Default)
+ OFF OFF OFF ON | E0000 | E8000
+
+Note: Other MEM-Base addresses seem to be selectable, but only the above
+ combinations are documented.
+
+
+Setting the Interrupt Line
+--------------------------
+
+To select a hardware interrupt level install one (only one!) of the jumpers
+JP3 through JP13 using the following table:
+
+ Jumper | IRQ
+ -------|-----------------
+ 3 | 14
+ 4 | 15
+ 5 | 12
+ 6 | 11
+ 7 | 10
+ 8 | 3
+ 9 | 4
+ 10 | 5
+ 11 | 6
+ 12 | 7
+ 13 | 2 (=9) Default!
+
+Note: - Do not use JP11=IRQ6, it may conflict with your Floppy Disk
+ Controller
+ - Use JP3=IRQ14 only, if you don't have an IDE-, MFM-, or RLL-
+ Hard Disk, it may conflict with their controllers
+
+
+Setting the Timeout Parameters
+------------------------------
+
+The jumpers labeled JP1 and JP2 are used to determine the timeout
+parameters. These two jumpers are normally left open.

+
+Setting one of the switches to OFF means "1", ON means "0".

+ 8 | 128
+
+Don't set this to 0 or 255; these values are reserved.
+
+
+Setting the I/O Base Address
+----------------------------
+
+The switches 1 to 6 of switch block SW1 are used to select one
+of 32 possible I/O Base addresses using the following tables
+
+ | Hex
+ Switch | Value
+ -------|-------
+ 1 | 200
+ 2 | 100
+ 3 | 80
+ 4 | 40
+ 5 | 20
+ 6 | 10
+
+The I/O address is sum of all switches set to "1". Remember that
+the I/O address space bellow 0x200 is RESERVED for mainboard, so
+switch 1 should be ALWAYS SET TO OFF.
+
+
+Setting the Base Memory (RAM) buffer Address
+--------------------------------------------
+
+The memory buffer (RAM) requires 2K. The base of this buffer can be
+located in any of sixteen positions. However, the addresses below
+A0000 are likely to cause system hang because there's main RAM.
+
+Jumpers 7-10 of switch block SW1 select the Memory Base address.
+
+ Switch | Hex RAM
+ 7 8 9 10 | Address
+ ----------------|---------
+ OFF OFF OFF OFF | F0000 (conflicts with main BIOS)
+ OFF OFF OFF ON | E0000
+ OFF OFF ON OFF | D0000
+ OFF OFF ON ON | C0000 (conflicts with video BIOS)
+ OFF ON OFF OFF | B0000 (conflicts with mono video)
+ OFF ON OFF ON | A0000 (conflicts with graphics)
+
+
+Setting the Interrupt Line
+--------------------------
+
+Jumpers 1-5 of the jumper block J1 control the IRQ level. ON means
+shorted, OFF means open.
+

+ OFF OFF ON OFF OFF | 4
+ OFF OFF OFF ON OFF | 3
+ OFF OFF OFF OFF ON | 2
+
+
+Unknown jumpers & sockets
+-------------------------
+
+I know nothing about these. I just guess that J16&J17 are timeout
+jumpers and maybe one of J18-J21 selects ROM. Also J6-J10 and
+J11-J15 are connecting IRQ2-7 to some pins on the UFSs. I can't
+guess the purpose.

+Setting the Node ID
+-------------------
+
+The eight switches in SW2 are used to set the node ID. Each node attached to
+the network must have an unique node ID which must not be 0. Switch 1 (ID0)
+serves as the least significant bit (LSB).
+
+Setting one of the switches to Off means "1", On means "0".
+
+The node ID is the sum of the values of all switches set to "1"
+These values are:
+
+ Switch | Label | Value
+ -------|-------|-------
+ 1 | ID0 | 1
+ 2 | ID1 | 2
+ 3 | ID2 | 4
+ 4 | ID3 | 8
+ 5 | ID4 | 16
+ 6 | ID5 | 32
+ 7 | ID6 | 64
+ 8 | ID7 | 128
+
+Setting the I/O Base Address
+----------------------------
+
+The last three switches in switch block SW1 are used to select one
+of eight possible I/O Base addresses using the following table:
+
+
+ Switch | Hex I/O
+ 6 7 8 | Address
+ ------------|--------
+ ON ON ON | 260 (Manufacturer's default)
+ OFF ON ON | 290
+ ON OFF ON | 2E0
+ OFF OFF ON | 2F0
+ ON ON OFF | 300
+ OFF ON OFF | 350
+ ON OFF OFF | 380
+ OFF OFF OFF | 3E0
+
+
+Setting the Base Memory (RAM) buffer Address
+--------------------------------------------
+
+The memory buffer (RAM) requires 2K. The base of this buffer can be
+located in any of eight positions. The address of the Boot Prom is
+memory base + 0x2000.
+Jumpers 3-5 of switch block SW1 select the Memory Base address.
+
+ Switch | Hex RAM | Hex ROM
+ 1 2 3 4 5 | Address | Address *)
+ --------------------|---------|-----------
+ ON ON ON ON ON | C0000 | C2000
+ ON ON OFF ON ON | C4000 | C6000 (Manufacturer's default)
+ ON ON ON OFF ON | CC000 | CE000
+ ON ON OFF OFF ON | D0000 | D2000
+ ON ON ON ON OFF | D4000 | D6000
+ ON ON OFF ON OFF | D8000 | DA000
+ ON ON ON OFF OFF | DC000 | DE000
+ ON ON OFF OFF OFF | E0000 | E2000
+
+*) To enable the Boot ROM short the jumper J2.
+
+The jumpers 1 and 2 probably add 0x0800 and 0x1000 to RAM address.
+
+
+Setting the Interrupt Line
+--------------------------
+
+Jumpers 1-5 of the jumper block J1 control the IRQ level. ON means
+shorted, OFF means open.
+
+ Jumper | IRQ
+ 1 2 3 4 5 |
+ ----------------------------
+ ON OFF OFF OFF OFF | 2
+ OFF ON OFF OFF OFF | 3
+ OFF OFF ON OFF OFF | 4
+ OFF OFF OFF ON OFF | 5
+ OFF OFF OFF OFF ON | 7
+
+
+Setting the Timeout Parameters
+------------------------------
+
+The jumpers J3 are used to set the timeout parameters. These two
+jumpers are normally left open.

+
+
+There is a DIP-switch with 8 switches, used to set the shared memory address
+to be used. The first 6 switches set the address, the 7th doesn't have any
+function, and the 8th switch is used to select "compatible" or "enhanced".
+When I got my two cards, one of them had this switch set to "enhanced". That
+card didn't work at all, it wasn't even recognized by the driver. The other
+card had this switch set to "compatible" and it behaved absolutely normally. I
+guess that the switch on one of the cards, must have been changed accidentally
+when the card was taken out of its former host. The question remains
+unanswered, what is the purpose of the "enhanced" position?
+
+[Avery's note: "enhanced" probably either disables shared memory (use IO
+ports instead) or disables IO ports (use memory addresses instead). This
+varies by the type of card involved. I fail to see how either of these
+enhance anything. Send me more detailed information about this mode, or
+just use "compatible" mode instead.]

+SEEM to have settings similar to the PDI508Plus, which is

+NONAME 16-BIT ARCNET
+====================
+
+The manual of my 8-Bit NONAME ARCnet Card contains another description
+of a 16-Bit Coax / Twisted Pair Card. This description is incomplete,
+because there are missing two pages in the manual booklet. (The table
+of contents reports pages ... 2-9, 2-11, 2-12, 3-1, ... but inside
+the booklet there is a different way of counting ... 2-9, 2-10, A-1,
+(empty page), 3-1, ..., 3-18, A-1 (again), A-2)
+Also the picture of the board layout is not as good as the picture of
+8-Bit card, because there isn't any letter like "SW1" written to the
+picture.
+Should somebody have such a board, please feel free to complete this
+description or to send a mail to me!

+8-bit cards ("Made in Taiwan R.O.C.")
+-----------
+ - from Vojtech Pavlik <vojtech@suse.cz>
+
+I have named this ARCnet card "NONAME", since I got only the card with
+no manual at all and the only text identifying the manufacturer is
+"MADE IN TAIWAN R.O.C" printed on the card.

+
+Although the jumpers SW1 and SW3 are marked SW, not JP, they are jumpers, not
+switches.
+
+Setting the jumpers to ON means connecting the upper two pins, off the bottom
+two - or - in case of IRQ setting, connecting none of them at all.
+
+Setting the Node ID
+-------------------
+
+The eight switches in SW2 are used to set the node ID. Each node attached
+to the network must have an unique node ID which must not be 0.
+Switch 1 (ID0) serves as the least significant bit (LSB).
+
+Setting one of the switches to Off means "1", On means "0".
+
+The node ID is the sum of the values of all switches set to "1"
+These values are:
+
+ Switch | Label | Value
+ -------|-------|-------
+ 1 | ID0 | 1
+ 2 | ID1 | 2
+ 3 | ID2 | 4
+ 4 | ID3 | 8
+ 5 | ID4 | 16
+ 6 | ID5 | 32
+ 7 | ID6 | 64
+ 8 | ID7 | 128

+ 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 | FF | 255
+
+
+Setting the I/O Base Address
+----------------------------
+
+The last three switches in switch block SW1 are used to select one
+of eight possible I/O Base addresses using the following table
+
+
+ Switch | Hex I/O
+ 6 7 8 | Address
+ ------------|--------
+ ON ON ON | 260
+ OFF ON ON | 290
+ ON OFF ON | 2E0 (Manufacturer's default)
+ OFF OFF ON | 2F0
+ ON ON OFF | 300
+ OFF ON OFF | 350
+ ON OFF OFF | 380
+ OFF OFF OFF | 3E0
+
+
+Setting the Base Memory (RAM) buffer Address
+--------------------------------------------
+
+The memory buffer (RAM) requires 2K. The base of this buffer can be
+located in any of eight positions. The address of the Boot Prom is
+memory base + 0x2000.
+Jumpers 3-5 of jumper block SW1 select the Memory Base address.
+
+ Switch | Hex RAM | Hex ROM
+ 1 2 3 4 5 | Address | Address *)
+ --------------------|---------|-----------
+ ON ON ON ON ON | C0000 | C2000
+ ON ON OFF ON ON | C4000 | C6000
+ ON ON ON OFF ON | CC000 | CE000
+ ON ON OFF OFF ON | D0000 | D2000 (Manufacturer's default)
+ ON ON ON ON OFF | D4000 | D6000
+ ON ON OFF ON OFF | D8000 | DA000
+ ON ON ON OFF OFF | DC000 | DE000
+ ON ON OFF OFF OFF | E0000 | E2000
+
+*) To enable the Boot ROM set the jumper 8 of jumper block SW3 to position ON.
+
+The jumpers 1 and 2 probably add 0x0800, 0x1000 and 0x1800 to RAM adders.
+
+Setting the Interrupt Line
+--------------------------
+
+Jumpers 1-5 of the jumper block SW3 control the IRQ level.
+
+ Jumper | IRQ
+ 1 2 3 4 5 |
+ ----------------------------
+ ON OFF OFF OFF OFF | 2
+ OFF ON OFF OFF OFF | 3
+ OFF OFF ON OFF OFF | 4
+ OFF OFF OFF ON OFF | 5
+ OFF OFF OFF OFF ON | 7
+
+
+Setting the Timeout Parameters
+------------------------------
+
+The jumpers 6-7 of the jumper block SW3 are used to determine the timeout
+parameters. These two jumpers are normally left in the OFF position.

+
+SW1: Timeouts, Interrupt and ROM
+---------------------------------
+
+To select a hardware interrupt level set one (only one!) of the dip switches
+up (on) SW1...(switches 1-5)
+IRQ3, IRQ4, IRQ5, IRQ7, IRQ2. The Manufacturer's default is IRQ2.
+
+The switches on SW1 labeled EXT1 (switch 6) and EXT2 (switch 7)
+are used to determine the timeout parameters. These two dip switches
+are normally left off (down).
+
+ To enable the 8K Boot PROM position SW1 switch 8 on (UP) labeled ROM.
+ The default is jumper ROM not installed.
+
+
+Setting the I/O Base Address
+----------------------------
+
+The last three switches in switch group SW2 are used to select one
+of eight possible I/O Base addresses using the following table
+
+
+ Switch | Hex I/O
+ 4 5 6 | Address
+ -------|--------
+ 0 0 0 | 260
+ 0 0 1 | 290
+ 0 1 0 | 2E0 (Manufacturer's default)
+ 0 1 1 | 2F0
+ 1 0 0 | 300
+ 1 0 1 | 350
+ 1 1 0 | 380
+ 1 1 1 | 3E0
+
+
+Setting the Base Memory Address (RAM & ROM)
+-------------------------------------------
+
+The memory buffer requires 2K of a 16K block of RAM. The base of this
+16K block can be located in any of eight positions.
+Switches 1-3 of switch group SW2 select the Base of the 16K block.
+(0 = DOWN, 1 = UP)
+I could, however, only verify two settings...
+
+ Switch| Hex RAM | Hex ROM
+ 1 2 3 | Address | Address
+ ------|---------|-----------
+ 0 0 0 | E0000 | E2000
+ 0 0 1 | D0000 | D2000 (Manufacturer's default)
+ 0 1 0 | ????? | ?????
+ 0 1 1 | ????? | ?????
+ 1 0 0 | ????? | ?????
+ 1 0 1 | ????? | ?????
+ 1 1 0 | ????? | ?????
+ 1 1 1 | ????? | ?????
+
+
+Setting the Node ID
+-------------------
+
+The eight switches in group SW3 are used to set the node ID.
+Each node attached to the network must have an unique node ID which
+must be different from 0.
+Switch 1 serves as the least significant bit (LSB).
+switches in the DOWN position are OFF (0) and in the UP position are ON (1)
+
+The node ID is the sum of the values of all switches set to "1"
+These values are:
+ Switch | Value
+ -------|-------
+ 1 | 1
+ 2 | 2
+ 3 | 4
+ 4 | 8
+ 5 | 16
+ 6 | 32
+ 7 | 64
+ 8 | 128
+
