Is the driver for your network card loaded? You can try modprobe to load it.

FWIW, if you want to rerun the net setup stuff, all you have to do it type "netconfig." It's a lot faster than reinstalling the OS.

Amen ;)

Many people just take quite a while to rid
themselves of the Microsoft solutions. The
big three RE's


re-boot
re-install
re-ach for valium ;)
