I have seen no mentioning of a file called modules.description....(maybe this is called entirely different in RH9?), however I looked in the file modules.dep and found nothing any similar to '8029' .
So, no...nothing

OK, according to here:

http://translate.google.com/translat...3Fq%3DRTL-8029(AS)%2BRH9%2Bdriver%26hl%3Den%26lr%3D%26ie%3DUTF-8%26oe%3DUTF-8%26sa%3DG

your ethernet driver is 'ne2k-pci', because it is similar to an NE2000 or clones of that. So, substitute '8029as' with 'ne2k-pci' in the things to try from my previous posts and see how you go. (NE2000 is a very common ethernet card).

Interesting...

I now ha ve solved the problem but I get this msg which I dunno what it beholds...
redhat-config-network:
eth0 has an alias to module 3c501 in modules.config, instead of currently loaded module ne2k-pci!

Ok, I understand what it meants, but how tha heck am I gonna install this ne2-pci into the modules.config? I mean I never how to do that? I never saw ne2k-pci fully written out...what to do?

edit:
Do I just have to chance my 3c501 into ne2k-pci?

You will probably find a line in /etc/modules.conf saying:

alias eth0 3c501

Open /etc/modules.conf in a text editor as root (sorry, don't know how RH does that) and change that line to read:

alias eth0 ne2k-pci

Then save the file and exit. That should get rid of the msg.

I sort of figured out that part for myself, just needed a vote of confident!
Thank you for all your time!

Problem is solved!

Okay, now little problem part 2

Well, since my install of RH 9 I have no sound at all in here so I wanna solve that part aswell
At first I thought I just have to look at my lspci output again and do the same thing as I did for my ethernet card. However, when I look for " EMU10k1" I get a Joystick module
Do you have any insight in this one aswell? I would greatly appreciate it!

To give you a little more info, this is my modules.config:

alias usb-controller usb-ohci
alias eth0 ne2k-pci
alias usb-controller usb-ohci
alias usb-controller usb-ohci
alias usb-controller usb-ohci
alias usb-controller usb-ohci
alias sound-slot-0 emu10k1
post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1 || :

I myself think that the problem may lay in the last line, but just wanna make for sure

My modules.conf has these entries for the sound:

alias sound-slot-1 snd-emu10k1
above snd-emu10k1 snd-pcm-oss

Notice the 'snd-' prefix that yours doesn't have. However, this may be because of differences between RH and Mandrake, so I would wait for advice from someone who can speak for RH.

Don't worry about mine having 'slot-1', as my setup has an on-board sound chip as well as a PCI sound card. Yours is probably correct at 'slot-0'.

It might have been better to start a new thread for this, as it is a completely different problem. That way you would get many more people looking at it.
