NAME
     hme -- Sun	Microelectronics STP2002-STQ Ethernet interfaces device	driver

SYNOPSIS
     device miibus
     device hme

DESCRIPTION
     The hme driver supports Sun Microelectronics STP2002-STQ Fast Ethernet
     interfaces.

HARDWARE
     The hme driver supports the on-board Ethernet interfaces of many Sun
     UltraSPARC	workstation and	server models.

     Cards supported by	the hme	driver include:

     +o	 Sun PCI SunSwift Adapter ("SUNW,hme")
     +o	 Sun SBus SunSwift Adapter ("hme" and "SUNW,hme")
     +o	 Sun PCI Sun100BaseT Adapter 2.0 ("SUNW,hme")
     +o	 Sun SBus Sun100BaseT 2.0 ("SUNW,hme")
     +o	 Sun PCI Quad FastEthernet Controller ("SUNW,qfe")
     +o	 Sun SBus Quad FastEthernet Controller ("SUNW,qfe")

NOTES
     On	sparc64	the hme	driver respects	the local-mac-address? system configu-
     ration variable which can be set in the Open Firmware boot	monitor	using
     the setenv	command	or by eeprom(8).  If set to "false" (the default), the
     hme driver	will use the system's default MAC address for all of its de-
     vices.  If	set to "true", the unique MAC address of each interface	is
     used if present rather than the system's default MAC address.

     Supported interfaces having their own MAC address include on-board	ver-
     sions on boards equipped with more	than one Ethernet interface and	all
     add-on cards except the single-port SBus versions.
