This is a driver for the General Instrument (also known as
NextLevel) SURFboard 1000 internal
cable modem. This is an ISA card which is used by a number of cable
TV companies to provide cable modem access. It's a one-way
downstream-only cable modem, meaning that your upstream net link is
provided by your regular phone modem.

At present this driver only compiles as a module, so say M here if
you have this card. The module will be called sb1000. Then read
Documentation/networking/README.sb1000 for information on how
to use this module, as it needs special ppp scripts for establishing
a connection. Further documentation and the necessary scripts can be
found at:


If you don't have this card, of course say N.
