Proliant 1600 and Netware 6.5

I am trying to load this. I did the manual install using SmartStart 5.5 and then install the OS from the disk. It will not see the internal NIC. Has anyone seen this before and a work around. I was thinking of buying a Compaq NIC and installing.

Here is a link to the NIC drivers for Novell 6.5:

Let us know if these do not work for you? -john
Enjoy!

I am looking at installing a 10/100 TX PCI UTP Controller - 169849-001 from Compaq but cannot verify if the driver is listed as they all list as NC whatever. Do you know if this is one of the drivers listed?

Thanks
Scott

Your suggested card is a NETelligent 10/100 card. ( http://partsurfer.hp.com/cgi-bin/spi/showphoto?partnumber=169849-001 )

Here is the driver I think you need:

Hi Scott,

You can also try this, when NW65 opens the first screen or 2 there is an option to "allow unsupported drivers" make this "Yes" as opposed to the default of no.

This might allow it to see the NIC card, I had a similiar prob with my dl380 and 3000 servers. NW65 has trouble seeing CPQNF3's and some N100 cards or so I've found.

Regards

Bryan
