   1Text File for the SMC TokenCard TokenRing Linux driver (smctr.c).
   2        By Jay Schulist <jschlst@samba.org>

   4The Linux SMC Token Ring driver works with the SMC TokenCard Elite (8115T) 
   5ISA and SMC TokenCard Elite/A (8115T/A) MCA adapters.
   6
   7Latest information on this driver can be obtained on the Linux-SNA WWW site.
   8Please point your browser to: http://www.linux-sna.org

  10This driver is rather simple to use. Select Y to Token Ring adapter support
  11in the kernel configuration. A choice for SMC Token Ring adapters will
  12appear. This drives supports all SMC ISA/MCA adapters. Choose this
  13option. I personally recommend compiling the driver as a module (M), but if you
  14you would like to compile it statically answer Y instead.
  15
  16This driver supports multiple adapters without the need to load multiple copies
  17of the driver. You should be able to load up to 7 adapters without any kernel
  18modifications, if you are in need of more please contact the maintainer of this
  19driver.
  20
  21Load the driver either by lilo/loadlin or as a module. When a module using the
  22following command will suffice for most:
  23
  24# modprobe smctr
  25smctr.c: v1.00 12/6/99 by jschlst@samba.org
  26tr0: SMC TokenCard 8115T at Io 0x300, Irq 10, Rom 0xd8000, Ram 0xcc000.
  27
  28Now just setup the device via ifconfig and set and routes you may have. After
  29this you are ready to start sending some tokens.
  30
  31Errata:
  321). For anyone wondering where to pick up the SMC adapters please browse
  33    to http://www.smc.com
  34
  352). If you are the first/only Token Ring Client on a Token Ring LAN, please
  36    specify the ringspeed with the ringspeed=[4/16] module option. If no
  37    ringspeed is specified the driver will attempt to autodetect the ring
  38    speed and/or if the adapter is the first/only station on the ring take
  39    the appropriate actions. 
  40
  41    NOTE: Default ring speed is 16MB UTP.
  42
  433). PnP support for this adapter sucks. I recommend hard setting the 
  44    IO/MEM/IRQ by the jumpers on the adapter. If this is not possible
  45    load the module with the following io=[ioaddr] mem=[mem_addr]
  46    irq=[irq_num].
  47
  48    The following IRQ, IO, and MEM settings are supported.
  49
  50    IO ports:
  51    0x200, 0x220, 0x240, 0x260, 0x280, 0x2A0, 0x2C0, 0x2E0, 0x300,
  52    0x320, 0x340, 0x360, 0x380.
  53
  54    IRQs:
  55    2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15
  56
  57    Memory addresses:
  58    0xA0000, 0xA4000, 0xA8000, 0xAC000, 0xB0000, 0xB4000,
  59    0xB8000, 0xBC000, 0xC0000, 0xC4000, 0xC8000, 0xCC000,
