RH 7.1 does not recognize network card


Hello!

I installed RedHat 7.1 on system with the following configuration:

Pentium III 1000 Mhz
ASUS CUSL2-C motherboard
256 MB Ram
3C905 (Fast Etherlink XL PCI) -- 3C905-TX

My problem is that the installation program will not recognize any network card that I install. I tried four different network that worked in other Linux machines but do not work on this machine.

I am able to install to Linux and get it running. I even configured networking in Linux through linuxconf and tried both the 3c59x.o and 3c90x.o modules. However, I am unable to use the network. When Linux boots up it displays a failure for the eth0 interface. Do you have any ideas?

I'm running the 3Com Boomerang/Vortex w/o probs. Does ure BIOS contain a setting called smptin like "PnP-OS" if it's on, set it to off, Linux will take care of it. Btw, whats the errors? Its always good to post 'em, heres no such thing as too much info...

Got it working!

I finally got the network card to work. I had to modify the BIOS and specify the IRQ # for the slot that network card is installed in.
