Red face Linux Coyote

I have a 486pc which i use as a gateway to share my lan internet connection. I always booted it with linux coyote v1.2 but today i tried with the updated version (linux coyote 2.13) and this message shows up:

Internet (eth0):Ready
Lan Network(eth0): up
Error: one or more of the following subsystem are down.
-----Internet Configuration-------
Unable to obtain IP Address for PPP Interface, It may currently be offline.
-----Lan Configuration-------
Ip Address
-----Dns Configuration-------
Using coyote DNS cache

Press enter to return to system menu

I think there is a problem with the drivers. Could you tell me which are the compatible drivers for 3com905c card and realtek 8139 card.
I tried to change realtek 8139 for Winbond W89C940F, created a new disk, but the problem persist.

Thanks in advanced
