Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

I'm using Fedora Core 1.
I have the latest Intel driver e1000-5.2.52 dated 5/20/2004. I Untarred it, make installed it, and insmod ed it.
I have 2 Intel Dual 10/100/1000 82546GB chips and 1 Intel 10/100 82559 on a PC board and another 82559 on a PMC card. So I have 6 total Ethernet ports: 4 Gigabit, 2 10/100.
Now the 82546GB is virtually identical to the more common 82546EB but newer. Fedora's driver does not recognize the chip so I installed Intel's driver. So after the first install I have eth0 and eth1 that are the 10/100s. After I install the driver and reboot Kudzu finds the the 82546GB chips and allows me to configure them.
The problem is when boot is finished I only have 4 ports showing up. 2 of the 82546GB ports are list in the network configuration, 2 aren't (that is under devices). Under hardware all of them are listed but the "type" field for the ones aren't working are listed as "unknown". Also their device is like /dev/dev1234 rather than /dev/eth2 for the ones that work. Their status is ok. I can add eth4 and eth5 manual in the hardware tab but their status is configured and they give a nasty error message when you go to activate them.
So how do I fix these /dev/dev123 to be /dev/eth3 ?
