About SiS 900:

network driver
version 1.0.1ß (August 17th, 2003)

This is a driver for SiS 900 based network cards as found in the embedded chipset SiS 630, 735 and many other chipsets from SiS.
!! This is a beta release; it might not work correctly in some cases !!

This product is copyrighted ©2001-2003 by pinc Software. All Rights Reserved.
You may freely use this product as is. However, no warranty is given on the functionality. In no event shall the author be liable for any damages it caused.

The easiest way to install the driver is to execute the included Install script.
If you don't want to use that, just move the driver sis900 to /boot/home/config/add-ons/kernel/drivers/bin and make a link in /boot/home/config/add-ons/kernel/drivers/dev/net.

After this, type "rescan sis900" in a shell.

To install the net_server add-on (not necessary for BONE):
If you feel like wanting to manually add the interface to the network preferences, then move the add-on sis900 to /boot/home/config/add-ons/net_server. See a BeOS powered computer with working net for details (file /boot/home/config/settings/Network).
If not, just move the add-on to the system folder, /boot/beos/system/add-ons/net_server - this seems to be a bug in the Network preferences application.
