getting ethernet card to activate on boot
I am making progress slowly. My home Linux box can now get eth0 up and recognized, but I have to jump through hoops to do it. What do I need to add so that the kernel loads the module on boot?
I have an ASUS P4P800 mobo, with on board lan. I am using the 3c2000 drivers that go with this lan card.
Here's what I need to do to get attached to the network:
ifconfig eth0 up
I'd sort of like to cut out those steps and just have the thing load at boot. I am assuming it involves /etc/modules.conf, but I'm not sure what I need to do to it, or if I need to do anything else.
I am running Fedora Core 1, since 2 hates my motherboard.
I tried playing with /etc/modules.conf and got a bunch of errors on boot, so I think I better leave well enough alone until someone who knows what they're doing can help me out.
