+# Alteon network device configuration
+ bool "Alteon devices"
+ depends on PCI
+ ---help---
+ If you have a network (Ethernet) card belonging to this class, say Y
+ and read the Ethernet-HOWTO, available from
+ <http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto>.
+ Note that the answer to this question doesn't directly affect the
+ kernel: saying N will just cause the configurator to skip all
+ the questions about Alteon cards. If you say Y, you will be asked for
+ your specific card in the following questions.
+config ACENIC
+ tristate "Alteon AceNIC/3Com 3C985/NetGear GA620 Gigabit support"
+ depends on PCI
+ ---help---
+ Say Y here if you have an Alteon AceNIC, 3Com 3C985(B), NetGear
+ GA620, SGI Gigabit or Farallon PN9000-SX PCI Gigabit Ethernet
+ adapter. The driver allows for using the Jumbo Frame option (9000
+ bytes/frame) however it requires that your switches can handle this
+ as well. To enable Jumbo Frames, add `mtu 9000' to your ifconfig
+ line.
+ To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the
+ module will be called acenic.
+ bool "Omit support for old Tigon I based AceNICs"
+ depends on ACENIC
+ ---help---
+ Say Y here if you only have Tigon II based AceNICs and want to leave
+ out support for the older Tigon I based cards which are no longer
+ being sold (ie. the original Alteon AceNIC and 3Com 3C985 (non B
+ version)). This will reduce the size of the driver object by
+ app. 100KB. If you are not sure whether your card is a Tigon I or a
+ Tigon II, say N here.
+ The safe and default value for this is N.
