Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Should have a modules.conf file in /etc you can edit. Belial gave instructions on how to setup modules for a sound card in Slack.
What kind of netgear nic is this? A model or chipset and we should be able to tell you what module it uses? Was this card in your system when you installed Mandrake or are you adding it after Mandrake is already installed? If you installed and card was in system, Mandrake should have detected it as most Netgears are supported.
I have the same problem. i'm running Red Hat, though, the install instructions i had for my card said to edit etc/pcmcia/config with
version " ", "PCMCIA-Network Card"
....which i did, but i dunt think my drivers are installed properly or somethin, cause yeah, when i boot it does the same "initializing eth0" and then fails....
Hey, i honestly am not 100% sure what i did that it worked this time but i will just go through the steps...lol...
i went back and checked the /etc/modules.cnf file and changed the
alias eth0 belkin_old
alias eth0 pcnet_cs
and its been working ever since! :-) yeah... of course now i'm fighting with SAMBA trying to get my linux machine to network with my XP but that's for another message board lol
Hey Tom, any progress? I checked out netgear site and they have code for redhat up to 7.2
I believe I'd be able to tell you what to do if you tell us what format these drivers are on the netgear CD (is it .c, .o and makefile files, or maybe there is a tarball - .tar.gz or .tgz), and tell me what version of kernel is on Mandrake 9.0 - I am not up to par with Mandrake kernel versioning scheme)
