The card recognizes fine (it's a 3c589c, so I had no need for the
3c589.pkg). I reinstalled Newton internet just the way you described it
My problem is that I want to use linux netatalk to print to my LaserJet
4. The procedure is explained in the howto:
But whenever I select a network laserwriter on the Newton, I just get
the slip saying that it's searching, and nothing more.
I've tried virtually everything, short of using a sledge-hammer (and I'm
getting pretty close to that stage now). I know there is some sort of
network traffic going, because the lights flash and all, and I can ping
myself on the linux box.
Maybe I should install a terminal app on the Newt and see if I can get
something from that...
