netcard setup


eth0 and eth1 fail, here is the topo...
my pc: pII/500Mhz with 4 monitors one agp slot and 3 pci slot used for video cards.one sound card pci and 2 nic isa.
/-------agp: ati rage II
/------pci: sis6326
/------pci: sis6326
/------pci: sis6326
/------pci:soundblaster3d
/------isa:3c509 lan with static 10.41.0.1/16
/------isa:d-link(ne2k compatible) hook to internet dhcp
the os:dual boot: win 98 and RH7.0
the problem:eth 0 and 1 fail at boot and work fine with wz98
that i have done so far:
1.check to be sure pnp is disable in the bios
2.run /etc/rc.d/init.d/network reboot it failed...
3.modprob 3c* or ne2k* nothing found...
4.with linuxconf it looks like it is config ok
5.with netcfg i try to activate and it doesn't work
6.i look at cat/proc/pci , interrupts and ioports and i think the problem is there with all those video cards but i don't know to look for a conflict with those files. Can someone help me?

also, how do i know witch card to put on eth0 does it goes with the slots, i don't see the mac address associate with the card?

Well, i hope someone can clarified all this, it is so confusing and i am not getting anywhere.

OK, Double posting is one thing.. but TRIPLE posting????

I'm pretty sure anyone here uses 'View New Posts' when they come here, so posting in multiple forums does NOTHING but annoy people!!

No sorry, I don't know. I've had similar problems. I've tried numerous different 3c509 and ne2000 isa cards, and i've never managed to get a single one working even though windows got them all up. My personal solution is to buy some rtl8139 PCI cards!

If I were you I'd use a DOS utility from the NIC manufacturer to hard set the IRQ etc. that's going to be used by the NICs, that way you know exactly where to point your modules when you attempt to load them. As for finding the current settings in Linux, this can be a pain as things don't show up in /proc/interrupts until the kernel detects then, clearly this won't happen if the modules are not loading. You will also want to look into what interrupts are being used by your video cards. Why so many video cards - you trying to recreate John Travolta's PC from Swordfish or something?

cheers

Jamie...

Hi Jamie,
i can see the irq and address used then i boot in windoze... but i don't know that to do with this in linux. Can i force the irq and address to my os?

For the monitor, well... i'm 007!
I really have a great utility for multiple monitor, however, linux doesn't seem to support that great feature from wz98 and Me Try the use of two monitor and you will quickly get addicted, and the truth is that 4 gets a little too much.
