Linksys USB200M asix Icon-checked.png Icon-checked.png 10.2 Net install works, but not PXE booting.

You can actually do a completely net install by PXE booting from any nic, even if the kernel doesn't support that nic, and once booted, the installer will find the usb nic and use that for everything else.

AX88772 driver support in kernel 2.6.14 and later, so this may work on SUSE 10.1

http://cateee.net/lkddb/web-lkddb/USB_NET_AX8817X.html

"This driver should work with at least the following devices: * Aten UC210T * ASIX AX88172 * Billionton Systems, USB2AR * Buffalo LUA-U2-KTX * Corega FEther USB2-TX * D-Link DUB-E100 * Hawking UF200 * Linksys USB200M * Netgear FA120 * Sitecom LN-029 * Intellinet USB 2.0 Ethernet * ST Lab USB 2.0 Ethernet * TrendNet TU2-ET100"
