when trying to bring up the interface eth0
i'm a complete
to linux. just managed to install it on my laptop (Acer travelmate 621xv). however, when it tries to boot up, it will hang when it tries to 'bring up eth0'.
i m however, able to boot into linux if i bypass this part of the boot up. when i tried to access the network configuration to disable/enable the nic, it hangs totally(must do hard reset). the hardware browser is able to show me the nic though (intel pro/100 ve). what is wrong?
i've also tried this (i know this is for rh7...): http://www.megapath.net/support/Tech...t_7_static.asp
but the booting up still hangs at the eth0 part. what shld i do? m really interested in learning linux but this thing is pissing me off...
