PCI Ethernet Cards and Minix

No additional explanation was provided, but I believe the effect of this is to allow Minix to refer to the extended range of I/O addresses that are used with devices on the PCI bus. You may need to disable plug and play for your card to keep Windows from changing the addresses.

Please contact me if you have difficulty applying this patch. It's possible a web browser may alter the formatting enough that the patch program won't recognize it.
