RH9 - Can't activate network adapter
I'm relatively new to linux and I have done some searching for an answer. I got ahold of RedHat 9 because I wanted to install it on my Toshiba 2100cds. I had an initial prob with something about pci=biosirq. I fixed that problem by changing a bios setting. Now I put my pcmcia network card (Netgear fa410tx) in and then boot. It boots fine, I go into the RedHat network configuration GUI and the Hardware is detected as a
D-Link DE-650/Linksys Ethernetcard (ns8390) pcmcia
nothing is found in the irq, io, etc. When I add a new device to this card it seems to add fine, but when I try to activate it it just seems to freeze and I have to use the reset button to restart.
same exact thing happens when I try to use a Linksys NP10T
including the detected hardware. Also neither of the cards can be found in the hardware list.
I hope this isn't too longwinded and makes sense to whoever reads it and appreciate any help that you can give me. THX
