Well, I am totally new to Red Hat in general. I have currently Red Hat 7.0 up and running. But, for someone new to install a nic card.....I am about to give up. Researching on the internet provides too many answers, but my problem is...where do I start? For example:
Motherboard: ECS K7S5A w/
LAN: Sis 900 PCI
I have tried LinucConf with the kernal "sis900.o" using eth0....no luck
I have tried insmod sis900.o.....no luck
This and that, and trying the "/etc/rc.d/init.d ./network restart" it always says either "The device is busy" or "Invalid parmameter parm_io (if I try the IRQ and/or IO variable"
Do I need IRQ and IO varibles on a PCI device?
Do I need my BIOS on "NON-PNP OS"?
Do I need to do anything else besides editing modules.conf?
Where do I start or is there a nice pdf/book online to tell me everything I need? This has cost me work and I am about to put linux back on the shelf for the 3rd time.
Thanks all for your help! You can make me a linux user!
