I installed mandrake 10.1 comm alot on my machine and never ran into this problem. My motherboard is a NF7-s2g and when it goes to boot all hardware and so on I get a kernel null error for via velocity gigabyte lan card. I found many ways around it but it involes reinstalling mandrake on a freshly formatted hard drive and turning off network on boot option when configuing the network when installing. This allowed me to get to command line and install NFORCE drivers for my chipset and ethernet and graphics drivers for my video card (Geforce 6800). Now i go in and try to start my ethernet card by doing a network configuration and reconfiging the the setting but then hardrake and network configuration freezes. and then when i go to boot up from a restart I get the kernel null error once again for via velocity gigabyte ethernet. I did notice that when i do the configuration program it automatically check option for network card on boot up which is what i wanted not in the beinning when troubleshooting this problem. can any help me out?
my kernel is 2.6 using kernel source 2.4 and 2.6 (defualt kernels from mandrake 10.1 install cd)
