ditto ...
Just got back from second attempt at upgrade of Raq1 --> 2 ...
I tried several different nic's and crossover cables ....

Raq says net booting , then nothing ... except a steady link light .....

I just received this disk perhaps its a burn issue? ....
cards tried : 3com 3c905-tx rev 1&2, and a 3c905b-tx-nm ( read warning about
only 10mbs ) and a 3c509tp  rev a
-or- not ....
What am I doing wrong ?
