Question Help! troyble getting Ethernet card to work on Linux


Hello. I've just installed RedHat Linux 9 on my IBM

thinkpad and I'm having trouble getting my Xircom Cardbus

Ethernet II 10/100 and Cisco systems 350 series PCMCIA

wireless LAN adaptor to work, so that I can go on the internet.

I've been told that RH9 should have the drivers necessary to get

these devices working but I've had no luck so far. Anyone has

any idea how to get them to work?Thanks in advance. =)

What error messages do you get? What happens when you try to connect?

Thanks for replying. Anyway, I tried activating it, but I got the following error msg:

/sbin/ifup: configuration for eth0 not found

Is there anything else I need to configure ?

Thread moved to Linux - Laptops. Member Intro is a good place to say 'hallo', but questions should go to other forums. This one fits your question best.

Finally got the xircom cardbus working, after much fiddling around. Seems like I did not configure some stuff correctly. Thanks for your replies!
