But for netCF according to this FAQ
you must have changed the configuration first via the serial console.
The problem with many of the FAQs is that an answer immediately brings up a
new question. For example this FAQ does not talk about etherstix. Why?
Somehow I was under the impression that etherstix (unlike netCF and others)
was initialized. But now of course I can't find where I read it :-)

Thanks. I'll have a look at it as soon as we have our serial interface
up (with the max232 conversion chip).
