Unhappy can't install suse through FTP


hi,

i tried to install Suse through the boot CD. it says it cant install
Suse through FTP since it cant find the network card.
i cant locate the network card module.
Internet is through LAN.
In windows, i connect to internet through VPN..it is probably
dynamic ip, but im not sure.

please help

the problem is that suse cannot detect your network card... what card/model do you have?

well, that's another error entirely...

have you used this computer before, and you know that the keyboard works?

what is it, ps/2?
