+This driver provides kernel support for Davicom DM9102(A)/DM9132/DM9801 ethernet cards ( CNET
+10/100 ethernet cards uses Davicom chipset too, so this driver supports CNET cards too ).If you
+didn't compile this driver as a module, it will automatically load itself on boot and print a
+line similar to :
+ dmfe: Davicom DM9xxx net driver, version 1.36.4 (2002-01-17)
+If you compiled this driver as a module, you have to load it on boot.You can load it with command :
+ insmod dmfe
+This way it will autodetect the device mode.This is the suggested way to load the module.Or you can pass
+a mode= setting to module while loading, like :
+ insmod dmfe mode=0 # Force 10M Half Duplex
+ insmod dmfe mode=1 # Force 100M Half Duplex
+ insmod dmfe mode=4 # Force 10M Full Duplex
+ insmod dmfe mode=5 # Force 100M Full Duplex
+Next you should configure your network interface with a command similar to :
+ ifconfig eth0
+ ^^^^^^^^^^^
+ Your IP Address
+Then you may have to modify the default routing table with command :
+ route add default eth0
+Now your ethernet card should be up and running.
+Implement pci_driver::suspend() and pci_driver::resume() power management methods.
+Check on 64 bit boxes.
+Check and fix on big endian boxes.
+Test and make sure PCI latency is now correct for all cases.
