3c905C network card in docking station. Cannot activate network device eth0.
I am a linux newbie (2nd Day) who just installed Red Hat 9. Ethernet connection is not working. In Hardware Browser, the 3c905C network card is recognized. In Network Configuration, the device also shows up, but is inactive. When trying to activate, I get this message...
Cannot activate network device eth0!
Determining IP information for eth0...failed; no link present. Check cable.
I've tested an XP machine in the same docking station and it works. I have a feeling this has to do with the fact that the ethernet card is in the docking station. I don't have a network card directly in the laptop, so I can't tell if that scenario works.
Computer: Dell Latitude CPx Pentium III 650
Docking Station: Latitude C/Port II
Ethernet card: 3 com 3c905C
Again, I am a newbie so I will need very SPECIFIC (detailed) instructions. Thanks in advance.
