NAME
     fpa, fea -- device	drivers	for DEC	FDDI controllers

SYNOPSIS
     device fpa
     device fea

     FreeBSD only:
     device fddi

DESCRIPTION
     The fpa and fea device drivers provide support for	the DEC	DEFPA PCI FDDI
     Controller	and the	DEC DEFEA EISA FDDI Controller,	respectively.  All
     variants of either	controller are supported including the DAS and SAS
     configurations.

DIAGNOSTICS
     fea%d: error: desired IRQ of %d does not match device's actual IRQ	(%d)
     The device	probe detected that the	DEFEA board is configured for a	dif-
     ferent interrupt than the one specified in	the kernel configuration file.

     fea%d: error: memory not enabled! ECU reconfiguration required  The de-
     vice probe	found that no device memory had	been configured	on the DEFEA.
     Although the DEFEA	can be configured with no device memory, this driver
     requires a	minimum	of 1K device memory to be set up.  The ECU (EISA Con-
     figuration	Utility) will need to be run to	change the settings.

CAVEATS
     Normally, the device driver will not enable the reception of SMT frames.
     However if	the IFF_LINK1 flag is set, the device driver will enable the
     reception of SMT frames and pass them up to the Berkeley Packet Filter
     for processing.

     The fpa and fea device drivers and	this manual page were written by Matt
