Ok I hate to have a new thread devoted to this but I'm not getting anywhere with the other threads out there.
First let me say be gentle I'm a nOOb where Linux is concerned! I have had several good install on other hardware but I decided to create a dual boot with XP pro (no problems here)! The problem I'm having is with my 3Com Lan and other nForce issues.
I have followed a tut from http://attila.stevens-tech.edu/~dkopko/a7n8x.txt
but it goes into updating the kernel with a beta version and I'm not into beta --not being new to Linux. There a bunch of other things to but i digress.
My question has to do with the section that goes starts patching things:
patch -p1 < ~/asusa7n8x_3com.diff
How can I use the asusa7n8x_3com.diff file to correct the problems with my 3Com 3C920B lan card?
I am also having issues getting the sound and net card for nForce2 to work. I have not spent much time trying to get the sound and Nvidia nforce net card to work though. Hope fully their drivers will be enough for me.
Any guideance will be greatly appreciated.
EDIT: The version of Linux I have is 2.4.18-14
