2 similar systems/ networking misbehavior
I am assisting a friend in installing Linux (using the Debian net installer), and attempting to connect to a Windows XP box which serves internet to us. We put the following in /etc/network/interfaces :
1) Installs the motherboard drivers and
2) Runs XP's Network Setup Wizard, disabling the firewire connection.
The problem appears to be that the firewire attempts to bridge the connection, which causes all sorts of problems (since he does not have any firewire devices or firewire/ethernet converters).
How would we go about fixing this on Linux? The obvious first step would be to install drivers for the LAN card, but googling for 'Marvell 8001 Gigabit Ethernet controller linux drivers' gives nothing of any apparent use. Am I missing a useful link in their somewhere, or is there another way to get drivers for it? Or should we be attacking this situation differently?
