I did stage three strictly from the CD. I have a 24K connection and I wanted it in this lifetime. It worked fine. I may have just been lucky. Not likely but possible.

I did have to install about three or four times but it was me making boo boos not it.

The stage you use doesn't make a difference there.Just avoid genkernel to configure and compile your kernel.I never tried it but I am not comfortable with a kernel that I don't know.Plus I don't see why I should have to fool around with an initrd I don't need.

If you can use your DSL I would start with stage 1. It will get you the most up to date packages that way. You should have a more stable system that way. There are only a few extra steps as I recall. Shouldn't be that much difference.

Good luck either way. I think you will like it though. It is really fast and cool looking.

Edit: Still can't type with crap. Apparently I can't pufread either.

insmod: /lib/modules/2.4.20-gentoo-r6/kernel/drivers/net/e100.o: init_module: no such device
insmod: hint: insmod error can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.

You get these messages when recompiling your kernel? (Not using the genkernel, cause that sucks, but by downloading 2.4.2x from kernel.org and compiling that one?

emerge gentoo-sources (thats probably what you got on there right now) and follow the steps in the doc's about installing the kernel.When you make menuconfig amke sure you got all the things that are mentioned in the doc's in there plus compile the driver for your eth into the kernel.I don't know about genkernel but normally you should have a reasonable kernelconfiguration saved and only need to change the eth from a module to being in the kernel.
I'd be happy to look over the config file if you post it or email it to me.It's in /usr/src/linux/.config

For the Intel card:

1. Turn off Plug-N-Play OS support in your BIOS if possible; it often causes resource conflicts with PCI devices in Linux.

2. Use the following commands to see if you do have IRQ/IO conflicts:

less /proc/interrupts
less /proc/ioports

3. Try using the modprobe command instead of insmod. Do the following, in order:

depmod -ae
modprobe e100

The first command might take a little time to complete. If both commands complete successfully you won't see anything happen, you'll just be returned to your prompt. At that point do the following and see if e100 loaded:

lsmod


If you just can't get it happening, you could try the alternate "eepro100" driver available here.

Um...

You're giving us the result of the suggestion I posted as a last resort, what about the other suggestions I offered?

Work through suggestions 1-3 (in order) and give us detailed results of each.
