Thanks for all of the replies.
I should point out that I'm using the kernel, rootfs and pbl
mentioned in the wiki...
ifconfig -a just shows the loopback device so it seems that something
funny is going on. When I did a search for ADM8515 linux I found a
link to the file pegasus.h which suggests that the pegasus driver can
cut-it with this chip-set. Do you think I'm reading this correctly?
My assumption was that if the kernel had the modules loaded and I
plugged the drive in, it should show up somewhere but ipconfig
doesn't spot it. Do I need to do something else?
Thanks for the input, it's nice to be welcomed :-)
All the best.
