Really, you're doing a great job. Just wanted to point out what you and I take for granted is not the same as a newbie.

Keep it up.

Now you just need to install the right module....Not as easy as it sounds. Just follow Nylex's advice.

Cool. Lol, it's just I seem to have forgotten netconfig probes for a NIC to configure and stuff, so perhaps all the modprobing and stuff wasn't necessary. I seem to take the long way around in doing things!

I just run netconfig on all my new installs....Does everything:modprobe, sets up the network ip addresses, and resolv.conf, hosts, all kinds of stuff....lol

As I said, we somtimes forget the 'easy' way. Slackware can do that to you....

The natsemi module still isn't loaded, which is odd. Go ahead and run netconfig again and if you're not using DHCP then yeah, use the static IP option.

alright,
here is what i have done. I ran the netconfig again nothing happend, so i tried the static ip and that did not work, which would mean that loading the module is what i should try, so i typed in #modprobe natsemi and here is what i got


root@Tim:~# modprobe natsemi
/lib/modules/2.4.31/kernel/drivers/net/natsemi.o.gz: /lib/modules/2.4.31/kernel/drivers/net/natsemi.o.gz: unresolved symbol crc32_le
/lib/modules/2.4.31/kernel/drivers/net/natsemi.o.gz: /lib/modules/2.4.31/kernel/drivers/net/natsemi.o.gz: unresolved symbol bitreverse
/lib/modules/2.4.31/kernel/drivers/net/natsemi.o.gz: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.31/kernel/drivers/net/natsemi.o.gz failed
/lib/modules/2.4.31/kernel/drivers/net/natsemi.o.gz: insmod natsemi failed

The problem appears to be that the natsemi module depends on having the crc32 module loaded. To be honest, I'm not sure of the proper way of dealing with this (but someone will know), but as a kind of temporary solution, maybe try

# modprobe crc32
# modprobe natsemi

and see if that helps.

According to /lib/modules/2.4.31/modules.dep, it sure does need crc32

Yay . Does it still work after rebooting and stuff? Actually, since you've got it working for now you may not want to reboot! I'm going to go to sleep (it's 23:20 here), but shall return to this thread tomorrow morning to see if you've had more problems.
