Ok, im not sure if i should post this here or in a distro forum but it has happened with fedora 4, suse, and now mandriva so i figured this would be best place to post.
Whenever i am restarting or shutting down linux it "un-mounts" everything including my ethernet adapter. Now, when it does that it makes it so i cannot use my ethernet adapter until i boot back into linux when it "mounts" the nic. In windows i can see the eth. adapter in device manager and it looks fine but its just not "activated." The only way i can use the nic in windows is to hard reset the computer before linux "un-mounts" the nic when its shutting down. My question is: Is there any way through a configuration file or anything at all i can do to modify linux (specifically Mandriva 2005 right now) so that when i shut it down it will skip the "un-mounting" or deactivating or whatever its called of the ethernet adapter so i dont have to physically reset the computer everytime, because then linux tell me the next time i boot that i shut it down wrong and it runs a bunch of tests. Any help would be greatly appreaciated. Im a nub and i have spent probably 7 hours searching on internet and searching through files and its probably something simple im just too nub to figure it out.
im using an asus a8v with onboard NIC. (Marvell).
And no i cant just "enable" it.
When linux "disables" it the ethernet light on my cable modem actually turns off. Its like linux turns off my nic and i get it working again (i tried uninstalling windows, uninstalling linux, etc.) and the only way to get it working again, (i even reset my mobo with the jumpers!!!!) is to install and boot up linux so it "enables" the nic.

Now in fedora there is a file called /etc/rc.d/init.d/network. In it there is section called
# shut down all interfaces (other than loopback)
What I would try is putting a ' # ' at the front of everyline in that section and see if that works.
This will not stop the eth* devices
Only other thought like in fedora in /etc/rc.d/rc1.d there is a file called K**network. I would move it to say your home directory and give that a try.
This one will not stop anything the network script started.
