Network issue

Hello, I have a strange (at least to me) network issue:

i am using Debain, Sarge. i installed with the Netinstall option. After i first installed it, all was well with the network, like the installer used a net driver that wasn't otherwise installed. After rebooting the computer i no longer have a network card. I Resintalled the system, same thing happend.

I have a Intel 845 Celeron Mobo, it has an Intel Pro NIC Built in. Im too much of a newbie to linux to understand how to install network drivers, HELP!!!

Have you tried (as root) #ifconfig eth0 up ?

Also, when you rebooted, did you have to wait while the system attempted to set up the network via DHCP ? If so, and it failed after several attempts (and it would have been pretty obvious) then it will just be a matter of configuring eth0 to use static IP's. (Man ifconfig )

If there was no mention of attempting to start the network during boot (also, have a look through /var/log/messages et al.), then you could check to see which driver was supposed to be loaded, eg. (as root) lsmod | grep drivername .
