Thank you cloudbuilder. I installed Linux and my network card works. But I did the installation via CD. I wanted to do the installation via FTP so that I could get all the programs right there and then and get their descriptions.
But I'm wondering, if I find a driver what do I do with it? Do I put it onto a floppy and then when selection the network cards I would go to "More Network Cards"?? Thank you.
This is wat SUSE is telling
Boot from CD/floppy and at the bootpromt enter the installation source:
Remember to substitute 'ftp_server' and 'directory' with the appropriate
values (e.g. install=ftp://[IP-ADDRESS]/pub/suse/i386/9.1 if you're
installing from the SUSE ftp server).
=======================THIS SEEMS VERRY IMPORTANT ==================
Alternatively, choose 'manual installation' and configure the network in
the installation program.
IF YOU HAVE INSTALLED, YOU CAN SEE WHAT TYPE OF LANCARD YOU HAVE SO IT SHOULD BE NO TROUBLE AT ALL TO CONFIGURE YOUR NETWORK CARD in the manual installation.
