I am using Slackware v10.2, the bridge-utils compile
fine. For some reason I can't configure the bridge in
the "/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1" script. I used to have to do
an "rmmod tulip" then a "modprobe tulip" to make sure
the driver was loaded right. Do I still need to do this?

I am using an Adaptec ANA-6922A (2 port ethernet) PCI
card, if that makes any difference.

My basic setup goes something like this:

rmmod tulip
modprobe tulip
ifconfig eth0 up
ifconfig eth1 up
brctl addbr br0
ifconfig eth0 0.0.0.0
ifconfig eth1 0.0.0.0
brctl addif br0 eth0
brctl addif br0 eth1
brctl stp br0 off
ifconfig br0 192.168.0.2 broadcast 192.168.0.255
netmask 255.255.255.0
route add default gw 192.168.0.1

This worked like a dream on my previous install of
Slackware v9.0

If anyone could please help me, that would be great.
