tristate "ARCnet support"
---help---
If you have a network card of this type, say Y and check out the
(arguably) beautiful poetry in
<file:Documentation/networking/arcnet.txt>.
You need both this driver, and the driver for the particular ARCnet
chipset of your card. If you don't know, then it's probably a
COM90xx type card, so say Y (or M) to "ARCnet COM90xx chipset
support" below.
To compile this driver as a module, choose M here. The module will
be called arcnet.

config ARCNET_1201
tristate "Enable standard ARCNet packet format (RFC 1201)"
help
This allows you to use RFC1201 with your ARCnet card via the virtual
arc0 device. You need to say Y here to communicate with
industry-standard RFC1201 implementations, like the arcether.com
packet driver or most DOS/Windows ODI drivers. Please read the
ARCnet documentation in <file:Documentation/networking/arcnet.txt>
for more information about using arc0.
config ARCNET_1051
tristate "Enable old ARCNet packet format (RFC 1051)"
---help---
This allows you to use RFC1051 with your ARCnet card via the virtual
arc0s device. You only need arc0s if you want to talk to ARCnet
software complying with the "old" standard, specifically, the DOS
arcnet.com packet driver, Amigas running AmiTCP, and some variants
of NetBSD. You do not need to say Y here to communicate with
industry-standard RFC1201 implementations, like the arcether.com
packet driver or most DOS/Windows ODI drivers. RFC1201 is included
automatically as the arc0 device. Please read the ARCnet
documentation in <file:Documentation/networking/arcnet.txt> for more
information about using arc0e and arc0s.
config ARCNET_RAW
tristate "Enable raw mode packet interface"
help
ARCnet "raw mode" packet encapsulation, no soft headers. Unlikely
to work unless talking to a copy of the same Linux arcnet driver,
but perhaps marginally faster in that case.
config ARCNET_CAP
tristate "Enable CAP mode packet interface"
help
ARCnet "cap mode" packet encapsulation. Used to get the hardware
acknowledge back to userspace. After the initial protocol byte every
packet is stuffed with an extra 4 byte "cookie" which doesn't
actually appear on the network. After transmit the driver will send
back a packet with protocol byte 0 containing the status of the
transmission:
0=no hardware acknowledge
1=excessive nak
2=transmission accepted by the receiver hardware
Received packets are also stuffed with the extra 4 bytes but it will
be random data.
Cap only listens to protocol 1-8.
config ARCNET_COM90xx
tristate "ARCnet COM90xx (normal) chipset driver"
help
This is the chipset driver for the standard COM90xx cards. If you
have always used the old ARCnet driver without knowing what type of
card you had, this is probably the one for you.
To compile this driver as a module, choose M here. The module will
be called com90xx.
config ARCNET_COM90xxIO
tristate "ARCnet COM90xx (IO mapped) chipset driver"
---help---
This is the chipset driver for the COM90xx cards, using them in
IO-mapped mode instead of memory-mapped mode. This is slower than
the normal driver. Only use it if your card doesn't support shared
memory.
To compile this driver as a module, choose M here. The module will
be called com90io.
config ARCNET_RIM_I
tristate "ARCnet COM90xx (RIM I) chipset driver"
---help---
This is yet another chipset driver for the COM90xx cards, but this
time only using memory-mapped mode, and no IO ports at all. This
driver is completely untested, so if you have one of these cards,
please mail <dwmw2@infradead.org>, especially if it works!
To compile this driver as a module, choose M here. The module will
be called arc-rimi.
config ARCNET_COM20020
tristate "ARCnet COM20020 chipset driver"
depends on LEDS_CLASS
help
This is the driver for the new COM20020 chipset. It supports such
things as promiscuous mode, so packet sniffing is possible, and
extra diagnostic information.
To compile this driver as a module, choose M here. The module will
be called com20020.
config ARCNET_COM20020_ISA
tristate "Support for COM20020 on ISA"
depends on ARCNET_COM20020 && ISA
config ARCNET_COM20020_PCI
tristate "Support for COM20020 on PCI"
depends on ARCNET_COM20020 && PCI
config ARCNET_COM20020_CS
tristate "COM20020 ARCnet PCMCIA support"
depends on ARCNET_COM20020 && PCMCIA
help
Say Y here if you intend to attach this type of ARCnet PCMCIA card
to your computer.
To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be
called com20020_cs. If unsure, say N.
