I have a desktop with two hard drives. I have Win 2000 on the local disk, and have installed Fedora COre 1 on the slave drive, using the GRUB boot loader at startup to choose between the two. I originally had an ethernet card installed tha was used with wIN 2000 that is connected directly to my cable modem. I installed Fedora and during setup Eth0 was detected, and I chose to auto detect DHCP. Once installation was complete, I rebooted, and during startup the computer stalls while "Starting Network". This stall requires a reboot I have let it sit for hours with no change. I tried installing a new NIC card and reinstalling Fedora, and get the same problem. When I take out the NIC card and install Fedora the system boots fine. I really am new at this, and trying to get through this frustration. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
It sounds like your nic is not configured in linux. When you boot up have you noticed the part that says press I to go to interactive mode? You can do that and when it gets to the part about the network, just say no. Getting in interactive mode can be tough. It'll probably take several attempts. After you get intoyour system you should start to work to get you network card configured properly. If you get it configured properly and reboot, you shouldn't have any trouble.
Do you know what type it is? You can at least go to the point where you configure you network. It is one of the options in the "start menu". Start there and see if you can see anything wrong. You can stop and start it from there too.
