ze5250 Specs Needed

I have been looking around for the specs on the lcd screen and netowrk card. I was wondering if someone can link me to them...or if you know tell me. I am in need of the type/chipset of the NIC and horizontal/vertical refresh rates for the lcd monitor. I am planning on installing debian linux however I cannot seem to load the correct driver for the NIC.

Thanks,
-Frank

Hi Franck,

You are right, the specs are not detailled in HP product specifications page. But they are on driver section (only for XP, though, not for linux) !
Your NIC is said to be National Semiconductor DP83815/816 10/100 MacPhyter, but I don't know if there is any Linux driver for this.
But I didn't find anything for your screen. Usually, on redhat install, I choose 'standard LCD 1024x768 screen' and it works. Maybe could you try the same for Debian...
You can lean only on what resists you...

Franck:

I have a ze4100 with the same NIC and presumably the same video/LCD setup. The NIC works just fine using RedHat 8.0/9.0, so I'm sure you should have no problem with Debian. Use of horizontal/vertical refresh rates is pretty much passe under the newer versions of XFree86. You are however likely to encounter some other graphics issues. Take a look at my ze4100 web site (and references therein) to get a handle on some of the video/ACPI issues you may encounter:
