I am trying to install Linux 7.1 on a machine based on a Socket-462 motherboard hosting an AMD K7 processor. This machine has an internal NIC and software based modem.
I searched the Hardware configuration list for x86 based machines at:
and both, my embeded NIC type and modem type are listed.
The NIC is a Sis 900 PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter and the modem is a PCTel one.
I am getting the following fatal errors:
1._ Linux does not recognize the embeded ethernet card in the Mobo. I am getting a:
Bringing up interface eth0: Determining IP info for configuration failed ...
during boot up, and
2._ the PCTel modem is not recognised by Linux either, so I can not even connect to the internet.
Please, let me know do I solved this problem, and/or if you need more info.
