The first Linux Version was developed by Linus Torwalds in 1978.

Version 5.0 is outdated.
Try 7.1 and it will work for you. ;-))

I have a small solaris here with SCO and I 
think Brian and me know what we talk about.

Sorry, but I develop under DOS, Allegro and Watt-32 with DJGPP 
and now I am developing unde Linux which is 1.000.000 times 
more eficient, stabel and better to use as Dos. 

Iam working since 1983 with DOS and I was programming the 8086 and up...

What must be automated ???
If you install the Base of Debian/GNU-Linux it will work perfectly. 
I was using EMACS under DOS and now under Linux... no big difference.

What is automated under Dos ???
Try to setup the Packet-Driver and a wattcp.cfg... good luck !!!

Under Linux I have installed my 3c509B (10MBit) or 3c905B (100 MBit) 
and it was working immediatly.
