IBMTR_CS(4)			     Kernel Interfaces Manual			      IBMTR_CS(4)

NAME
       ibmtr_cs - IBM Token Ring PCMCIA device driver

SYNOPSIS
       insmod ibmtr_cs.o [pc_debug=n] [mmiobase=n] [srambase=n] [ringspeed=n] [irq_list=i,j,...]

DESCRIPTION
       ibmtr_cs  is the low-level Card Services driver for the IBM Token Ring network adapter and
       a few very similar cards.  When this driver is attached to a card, it allocates	the  next
       available  token ring interface (tr0..tr#).  This device name will be reported in the ker-
       nel log file, and passed on to cardmgr(8).

       Due to awkward design of the kernel ibmtr driver, the shared packet memory for these cards
       must  be  mapped  to  a	memory	address  below 1MB or 0x100000.  The PCMCIA software will
       attempt to do this automatically, but the automatic algorithm may choose values that  con-
       flict  with  other system devices, so a manual override with the srambase parameter may be
       required.  The memory-mapped IO window generally will not be a problem.

PARAMETERS
       pc_debug=n
	      Selects the PCMCIA debugging level.  This parameter is only available if the module
	      is compiled with debugging enabled.  A non-zero value enables debugging.

       mmiobase=n
	      Specifies  a  fixed address for the card's memory mapped IO window.  The default is
	      to select any available memory window.

       srambase=n
	      Specifies a fixed address for the card's shared packet memory.  The default  is  to
	      select any available window below 1MB.

       ringspeed=n
	      Selects the network speed, in mb/sec.  Valid values are 4 or 16, and the default is
	      16.
