NAME
     fpa, fea, fta -- DEC FDDI interface driver

SYNOPSIS
     fpa* at pci? dev ? function ?
     fea* at eisa? slot ?

   alpha and pmax
     fta* at tc? slot ? offset ?

DESCRIPTION
     Cards supported by the fpa, fea and fta device driver are:

	   DEFPA   DEC PCI FDDI Controller

	   DEFEA   DEC EISA FDDI Controller

	   DEFTA   DEC TURBOchannel FDDI Controller

     respectively.  All variants of either controller are supported including the DAS and SAS
     configurations.

DIAGNOSTICS
     fea%d: error: desired IRQ of %d does not match device's actual IRQ (%d)  The device probe
     detected that the DEFEA board is configured for a different interrupt than the one specified
     in the kernel configuration file.

     fea%d: error: memory not enabled! ECU reconfiguration required  The device probe found that
     no device memory had been configured on the DEFEA.  The DEFEA can be configured with no
     device memory, this driver requires a minimum of 1K device memory be set up.  The ECU (EISA
     Configuration Utility) will need to be run to change the settings.

SEE ALSO
     arp(4), netintro(4), ifconfig(8)

AUTHORS
     The fpa, fea and fta device driver and manual page were written by Matt Thomas.

BUGS
     Normally, the device driver will not enable the reception of SMT frames.  However if the
     IFF_LINK1 flag is set, the device driver will enable the reception of SMT frames and pass
     them up to the Berkeley Packet Filter for processing.
