Can't reach network with different distros -- IPv6 issue??
 
Hi,

I was using SuSE 8.2 on a laptop dual booted with XP. I felt like testdriving other distros, so I installed RH9 to replace SuSE.

My problem is that I can't get out onto my local network or subsequently the
Internet since I did this. Would this problem be caused by the fact that IPv6 doesn't appear to be running? I put in the SuSE 8.2 LiveEval and all connects well. I ran ifconig -a on both setups, and the results are below.
I'm not using DHCP...I set up a static IP address in both cases.

Here's the RH9 result:

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:40:CA:BC:8F:FB
inet addr:192.168.1.22 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0

and the SuSE result:

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:40:CA:BC:8F:FB

I also tried Knoppix and Mandrake 9.1 and got the same results as RH.

Another thing I can't figure out is why RH assigns the NIC IRQ 9 while SuSE
gives it IRQ 10.

Any advice?

Thanks
