Ok so I had RH 7.1 somewhat working when I was told that if I wanted two ethernet cards in my system I would have to reinstall with both cards in the system......I reinstalled...
I selected server and gnome, plus dhcp and linuxconf.Software installed wonderfully. Once I got to the network settings I selected DHCP for eth0 and manual for eth1 (private ip's). I completed the installed rebooted, then got this error Bringing up interface eth0: Determining IP information for eth0......Operation failed.
Eth1 initialized ok. Once the system came up I did a cat /proc/interrupts and cat /proc/ioports and noticed that eth0 was not listed. So I edited the modules.conf file and added the options
line to specify the io and irq for both eth entires.
I rebooted, I guess Im used to windoze, and now my eth0 and eht1 have this error Bringing up interface eth0: insmod: /lib/modules/2.4.2-2/kernel/drivers/net/3c59x.o : insmod eth0 failed: Delaying eth0 initialization.
The same error comes up for eth1 but with dmfe.o as the driver name. I can go
into a term window and insmod both drivers and they load fine
and doing an if config shows all devices (lo, eth0, eth1), but if I do an ifup eht0 i get the Delaying eth.....failed
I've heard many good things about linux. I don't want this issue to discourage me. Many thanks in advance
