I have no idea how to do this in linux, it seems to be very confusing. I know that when I reboot I see a msg that eth0 failed. I have the floppy from linksys with the driver but have no clue how to use it.
if your using the LNE100TX, it actually does come with a Linux driver on the disk provided but like rshaw said, that card uses the tulip dirver which is most likely pretty much in every standard linux distro... usually there is no need to install the driver off the disk since its already included in the OS.
but let us know the exact model of the card and we'll know for sure.
Thank you for answering back!!
I installed Linux Red Hat 7.3 and the floppy has a folder with the linux name on it besides all the folders for windows 9x. The name of the card is Linksys Etherfast 10/100 and the name of the drive is tulip. I hope someone can give me more tips on how to install the card.
Thank you for your reply!
your getting the error that it fails on bootup.. might already be recognizing the card and using the tulip driver. with this type of error, its just a good chance you have the wrong settings for your network configuration.
upon bootup, check and see if the tulip is already in use:
if its being used already, see what the output of your network is:
if you see a eth0 with the ifconfig, its ready to be used.
just run netconfig to setup your network configuration.
ok, a couple of things to check in etc/modules.conf at the top is a line alias eth0 ...... , it should read alias eth0 tulip. a bit futher down is a line options tulip options = x , if it has a comment (#) at the front, remove it. save the file, and at the root prompt type depmod -a
