Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I tried the Wake on Lan setup. The wakeup-0n-Lan after poweroff was already enabled. Tried to diasable and shutdown, wait 10 seconds, startup. Still the same problem. Changed it back to "Enable". But the same error.
I also tried BIOS setup, which had ROM on lan card enabled. Tried disabling this. Reboot and the same error.
Though it may not have anything to do with the network card issue, let me make my setup clear. I have comcast HS internet and I am connecting it to a netgear router. The router then connects my PC. I even tried connecting directly to the cable-modem and it still doesn't work. Am I missing anything?
The slax works and finds eth0, with the forcedeth driver. The size was a little different. It had the kernel 2.6.27 or something, which is higher than the one that i have 2.6.18. I also compiled lshw on my box. Even that shows the ethernet device. But card doesn't work.
Distribution: Slackware & Slamd64. What else is there?
It seems to be. I just installed Slackware's 188.8.131.52 kernel on a Slackware 11.0 system and the RTL8201 I have is now recognized. From what I could tell from all the web searches I did, the drivers supplied by the manufacturer are buggy. The later kernel seems to work better.
But I am still getting mostly terrible download performance and I don't know why.
It says "..I have installed 2.6.18-6 and seems it's forcedeth module doesn't support this chipset...I have downloaded kernel sources starting from 2.6.21 up to 2.6.25 and found that this chipset is supported in 2.6.23 and above.."
Does anybody know of forcedeth for kernel 2.6.18 or worked out any solution for mcp73 on 2.6.18?
Okay, it is a distro problem i do believe. It works on ubuntu but doesn't work on CentOS 5.3 and/or Fedora Based O/S. I do believe it only has the problem with CentOS. I am trying to fix this problem and I am having trouble and there isn't any good info on how to fix it.
