16	This driver provides kernel support for Davicom DM9102(A)/DM9132/DM9801 ethernet cards ( CNET
17	10/100 ethernet cards uses Davicom chipset too, so this driver supports CNET cards too ).If you
18	didn't compile this driver as a module, it will automatically load itself on boot and print a
19	line similar to :
20	
21		dmfe: Davicom DM9xxx net driver, version 1.36.4 (2002-01-17)
22	
23	If you compiled this driver as a module, you have to load it on boot.You can load it with command :
24	
25		insmod dmfe
26	
27	This way it will autodetect the device mode.This is the suggested way to load the module.Or you can pass
28	a mode= setting to module while loading, like :
29	
30		insmod dmfe mode=0 # Force 10M Half Duplex
31		insmod dmfe mode=1 # Force 100M Half Duplex
32		insmod dmfe mode=4 # Force 10M Full Duplex
33		insmod dmfe mode=5 # Force 100M Full Duplex
34	
35	Next you should configure your network interface with a command similar to :
36	
37		ifconfig eth0 172.22.3.18
38	                      ^^^^^^^^^^^
39			     Your IP Address
40	
41	Then you may have to modify the default routing table with command :
42	
43		route add default eth0
44	
45	
46	Now your ethernet card should be up and running.
47	
48	
49	TODO:
50	
51	Implement pci_driver::suspend() and pci_driver::resume() power management methods.
52	Check on 64 bit boxes.
53	Check and fix on big endian boxes.
54	Test and make sure PCI latency is now correct for all cases.
