Problems with network card in SCO

hello, i am new to unix and need support</SPAN></SPAN>
</SPAN></SPAN>The problem is:
I have a SCO 5.0.5 server, and has no local network access, I think my problem are the drivers for network card.
my network card is Kingston EtheRx PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter KNE120TX and already installed the drivers, but when I run:
# hwconfig-h the result that describes the network card is:
ktcHT 0xd400-0xd41f - - Kingston Et ....... NOT FOUND [KNE120TX]


reinstall the drivers and the network connection, but does not work
when setting up the network connection, save with default values:
Bus = 0
Device = 0
Function = 0
this can cause any conflict?

if this is wrong, what are the correct values?

The "correct" values will vary based upon the motherboard, and the slot that the card is installed in.
When the system does its POST (power on self test) you may, depending on which brand of BIOS you have, see a list of all the PCI interfaces in the system and three columns of values to the right side of the screen. These three columns represent the three values that you need.
If the screen scrolls past too quickly to see, change the boot sequence to diskette, or cd only and put a blank diskette/cd in the appropriate drive; the system will stop with "NO OS found" and allow you to read the POST data.

This sounds like you are entering values manually?

From New to SCO Unix :

"When adding a pci Network card to SCO OSR5, the card should just "pop up" with netconfig - you shouldn't get a whole list of cards to choose from. If it does not, you probably do not have the right driver and should visit ftp://ftp.sco.com/pub/drivers/ to get it. Also use "hw -r pci" to see what is actually installed."

Probably smarter to buy a card that SCO 5.0.5 DOES have drivers for. Unfortunately, that's going to be older versions - new cards may not work even if model number is the same.

Smarter still to move off SCO :-)

I had this equipment out of service, and worked correctly, but now I need to use it does not work. drivers are the same as used before, also values an bus device function.
the drivers are correct.

jgt: check the information, but that information does not show the server motherboard, it only shows that the pci card installed

TonyLawrence: yes, manually captured data.
captured the same values I had before but still not working

when I run:
# ifconfig-a
if there net0
# tcp start
/etc/slink: function "cenetb", command 2: open "/dev/net1": No such file or directory
ifconfig: ioctl ( SIOCGIFFLASS ): no such interface

If things were working before and don't work now it may be a dead card.
If only one network card the /dev/net1 is an error. cat /usr/adm/messages to see what reported last as the system booted.
How about using scoadmin, networks, network config manager, hardware to rip the network card out of the system then reboot and reinstall. Would require redoing tcpip afterwards. Haven't used that card so don't know what might be required to clean the drivers out.

I did a check of a system running XP Pro.
The three values show in the network connections -->configure card window.
So a convoluted way to find out would be to temporarily replace the disk, and install XP then look at the network connection info.

hello, I already have the values:
Bus: 0
Device: 8
Function: 0
apply changes in netconfig, but when I press exit netconfig, press "YES" in Relinked Kernel, and displays the message:

Error: Cannot find Driver.o for sem.
Fatal Error: Erros encountered. Configuration Terminated.
idbuild: idconfig had errors
system build failed

restart the server, but the changes did not work.
in /usr/adm/messages shows the same as before:
ktcHT 0xd400-0xd41f - - Kingston Et ....... NOT FOUND [KNE120TX]
