alright im fed up with fedora core and having to spend hours downloading rpms and all the random dependencies they have so im moving on to gentoo which i hear is alot better. The only problem is that i have a problem with my system detecting it's nic card or something, it is with eth0. I have read other forums saying that i probably have the wrong nic card driver installed and how to change it, the only problem is that i dont know what my nic card is because i took it from an older computer that i had from a while ago. So is there anyway to fiond out my nioc card on the system that can only boot the gentoo live cd. Other people have suggested that i use knoppix to identify my nic card, but i cant put knoppix on a cd. i had nero and that did it fine before but now i dont have it anymore and cant knoppix to burn right. SO anyway to make the question shorter, is there anyway to identify which nic card and which nic card driver i need to install, by using the gentoo universal live cd?
