Help with NIC config


I am new to knoppix and have been trying to install my NIC. I found and installed the drivers, but in the NIC setup it says "device busy." Any suggestions?

so when you modprobe rtl8139 it says device busy? or when you do a netconfig?

You should only modprobe rtl8139 if you have a 2.2.x.x kernel, for a 2.4.x.x kernel you should modprobe 8139too.
