I wouldn`t rule anything out and double check with the bios. Also u can try the command lspci to see what devices ur machine is showing as recognised.

Ok. I did the lspci command. There were around 8 unknown devices. Since I cant figure out how to share the drives yet between my windows and linux I have to manually type these codes and error messages in. So ill shorten it a bit. hehe. Here is the result of the lspci command

/sbin/lspci

00:00.0 HostBridge:nVidia Corporations: Unknown Device 00e1 (rev a1)
00:00,1 ISA bridge: nVidia Corporations: Uknown device 00e0 (Rev a2)

6 or more other unknown devices. Everything else looked ok. It seems like every onboard device witht the mobo does not work. For example: OnBoard Sound and OnBoard nic. The mobo is an Epox 8kda3j. Thanks again for the help. What should I do now?

Specifications for EP-8KDA3+ / EP-8KDA3J:
For Socket-754 based AMD Athlon 64 processors
nVidia nForce3 250GB Host Controller
1 Floppy drive controller - 2 serial ports - 1 parallel port
AGP 8x for 1.5v graphics cards, 6 PCI slots
2 standard IDE ports for ATA-133, backwards compatible with ATA-100/66
2 S-ATA ports from onboard nVidia host controller with RAID
nVRAID for combined P-ATA and S-ATA RAID
4 extra S-ATA ports from Silicon Image Sil-3114 controller with RAID 0,1,and 10
(only on 8KDA3+)
3 DDR SDRAM banks for Maximum 3 GB memory DDR333/400
4 USB 2.0 ports, 4 extra by optional USB back-panel cables
Multiphase power solution for increased stability, including 12v supply adaptation for CPU
8 channel Onboard sound from Realtek ALC850 Audio with Digital SPDIF and Automatic Jack Sensing feature (8KDA3+ adds optical output)

well there is a mention of your onboard sound in your mobo description
8 channel Onboard sound from Realtek ALC850 Audio with Digital SPDIF and Automatic Jack Sensing feature (8KDA3+ adds optical output)
and there is also mention of your onboard ethernet
On-chip Gigabit Ethernet 1000Mbps providing faster throughput than standard PCI Gigabit chips
but obviously if they were not showing using the lspci command, then we can assume that they are not being recognised by linux. I ask again have u checked ur bios...just because they are being recognised by windoze which will have been set up foryour onboard hardware with a mobo disc..does not necessarily mean they are auto set up in bios for another os. Pls check this out....and also try to list the unknown devices that lspci has given u so we can check it all out , if it was an irq prob then they would still be showing up listed in lspci :-)

it's enabled in win NOT Linux.

ifconfig lan0 down

then

ifconfig lan0 up

see if that works. SU of course.

Try to reload your module in your config utility. You might not have loaded it in the first place or it is the wrong module.

ok it seems that none of the nvidia hardware devices seem to be recognised, have tried going to nvidia`s website to download the drivers for linux
http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_n..._1.0-0292.html
"This page contains drivers and documentation for the nForce chipset. The chipset includes hardware support for IDE disk control, Ethernet networking, audio support, win modem support, and a USB controller. These packages have support for Ethernet networking and basic ACI audio. USB and IDE hardware will work with standard Linux drivers. There is no win modem support."

Which seems to be all the info and drivers for the hardware u r currently having probs with :-)

Ok Thanks a lot! I can now access the internet with FC2. Although my sound still does not work and I still get all the unknowns when I do the lspci command. I probably just need to read through the documentation that came witht he nForce driver more thoroughly. Thanks again for everything.

Hi guys, I am a big Linux newbie(just installed slackware 10.0 today for the first time ) and I was plugging along fine until I tried to get my connection up and running.

I followed this thread along and eventually got some webpages to load. I think it was the "Try dhcpcd eth0" command that did the trick. Can anyone explain what this does? I am just curious.

Deruwyn DHCP simply mean dynamic host configuration protocol...which is used when u need to get ur isp dynamically (without user intervention or without statically giving an isp address) basically if u have an isp and one pc u can manually put in the address of ur isp and when u connect to the internet ur pc will always connect to that address (this also can be true when u use a hub) sometimes though u may use an isp that has variant addresses or a router, in which case u would ask ur pc to `dynamically` assign which means u connect to whichever address ur isp is giving u at the point of your connection. :-)
