regarding the problem i stated below...here is some clarifiaction ....please help...any ideas?
I installed Fedora FC3 and got the SystemRescue CD from www.sysresccd.org.
The problem I have is: when I boot from the rescue CD, connection to DHCP is done nicely both in bringing up and down interface. When I boot by normal hard disk dual boot, I doesn't connect to network and gives me errors like "Bringing up interface eth0: kernel panic - not syncing: Halting" and "network unreachable".
If I try to use adsl-setup then adsl-start I get the kernel panic error again.
I also tried:
bash network status: gives me Configured devices: lo eth0 ppp0, and Currently active devices: blank.
bash network start: gives kernel panic when brining up interface eth0.
This is for home LAN, 1 PC with dual boot windows XP or Linux and the other PC with XP only. aDSL is Linksys router , pppoE.
