well this does get intresting
i call my cable company.they say we do not support linux.the big deal?.well i was able through virtual pc 2004..to run my linux redhat and actually even talk on the net.
yet now after i decided to do a full install,on a seperate drive.i ant get on the net.
the card is a realtek.it says to use 8139too.o..which by the way,i have the newest but dont have a clue how to compile.
when i went back to windows and found out the subnet etc from windows.
typed what was there,the card did activate but the page took way too long to load.i still dont know if it did.
can anyone help me get to the net or answer the questions.is there any software i can use?.
what if i didnt have the windows instal,how would i evenbe able to know this stuff.my isp is a goof ,they say i cant..when as you can see i was pretty close,and did indeed manage to do it through virtual pc.
one thing i notice is a change in irq..from 9 - 10
