The invisible networking card

The invisible networking card

I have a SA RPC running RO 4.02 and, at the recent South West Show, I
bought for it a networking card (not podule) on which several stickers
say "I-Cubed", while text on the PCB says "600".

As is all too common, it came without documentation, without supporting
software, without even the screws to secure it in place, but I did what
seemed to be obvious: prised out the blanking plate, plugged in the card,
and rummaged though an assortment of small screws for something suitable.

I'd been expecting, when I next turned on the computer, that the card
might, in some way, make its presence known, but

*Podules
Expansion card 0: Castle Technology Storm DMA32 SCSI Interface
Expansion card 1: No installed expansion card
Expansion card 2: No installed expansion card
Expansion card 3: No installed expansion card
Expansion card 4: No installed expansion card
Expansion card 5: No installed expansion card
Expansion card 6: No installed expansion card
Expansion card 7: No installed expansion card
Network expansion: No installed expansion card
*

it seems to be invisible.


Do I have to tell RO that it's been installed, or should I remove it
and drop it in a convenient bin?

All[1] working network cards willist themselves on a *Podules

[1] Possible exception may be Acorn's 1st network podule which may have used
disk based drivers.
