If this is the new Wolfenstein that is coming out (not Castle Wolfenstein
(2d) Beyond Castle Wolfennstein (2d), Wolfenstein 3d (first person 3d
shoot'em up), but is instead the new Wolfenstein (Return to Castle
Wolfenstein?) (rumored $10 million? from a guy who gave a presentation on
the gaming companies) I heard that they were using the Quake 2 engine. If
this is the case, they might be using the Quake2 servers or modifications
of those servers for network games. Searches for intersections of those
two values or variations on those two values may turn up some results for

Are you testing their newest product for Linux? If so, opinions?

One thing that I have used for cards of the same model, is the append eth
settings in the lilo.conf with expliciit IRQ referecnes for each eth and
proper names eth0, eth1 as I desire them. Seems to work, but I may have
just been lucky.

in /etc/lilo.conf
append="ether=IRQ,IO,ethX ether=IRQ,IO,ETHX"
Where IRQ is the hardware interrupt, IO is the IO port like 0x310 and ETHX
is the interface like eth0. Use of "0" (zero) for IRQ or IO means that the
kernel should autoprobe. Being Lazy, I just chose the manually assigned
IRQs, and left the IO as "0"

The reason for doing this is I have 5 ethernet cards in the same box, and
I wanted them to always come up the same way - even if I added another
card. (2 NE2000, 3 3Com).

Jeff's suggestion is a great idea since you can probably do it without
restarting your OS if you know what you are doing, and has other
advantages over the one I outlined.
