I've never used an active hub before... and was thus limited to 4 nodes
using my home-made passive hub.

I think you'll have trouble if you use anything other than 63 ohm coax...


Formerly, the support for ARCNET in Linux was pretty week. However, there was
an ARCNET/LINUX mailing list for a long time, and the members were keeping the
driver sources up-to-date. The name of the list owner (or the guy cranking out
the code) was, first name, Avery, last name, Pennimum or something unusal.
