Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

I recently installed Redhat onto my ACER Aspire 3000 and my network card (eth0) didn't work. I visited a forum (could have been this one) and someone was having a similar problem. The solution was to add a small piece of code to one of the lines in a configuation file. The trouble is now I have formatted and I can't remember the code or the file I edited. Does anyone know what I;'m talking about?
Please help if you can I need this for my networking class at Seneca College. Thank you.
I'm afraid your going to have to describe what the symptoms are... error msgs or codes?? what does dmesg say?? see if your card shows up in the lspci command... Your just not giving up much to go on.. try ifconfig eth0 too... Anyway... your going to have to give us a lot more .. :-(
[root@localhost dave]# /sbin/ifconfig eth0
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:C0:9F:8A:1F:A5
inet6 addr: fe80::2c0:9fff:fe8a:1fa5/64 Scope:Link

Thats everything, if you need any more info just request it and I'll post up asap.
About the piece of code I had added when I installed Redhat, it was about 8 characters long or so. I added it to a file that reminded me of an autoexec.bat type of file. As soon as I added that code, the internet worked.
I think the problem is that DHCP is either not installed or is not functioning properly. I gave up on it for now until I have some more time to play around. Try to install all rpm's for DHCP. I'm a n00bie at this so that is all I can tell you.
I'm not sure, as I stated in the first post I'm new to Linux. You may also want to try what I did with editing the grub.conf file and adding the line acpi=ht. It didn't work for me this time but I think that it may be worth a try.
P.S. Acer is just horrible, I will never recommend it to anyone ever again.
@tylu82: sis900 won't work couse it has some collision with acpi
@dssdave: don't say that, for me works fine. are You sure that You installed grub with new grub.conf? and don't use acpi=ht option any more, but acpi=noirq or pci=noacpi. both should work ass well, and the CPU Speed works.
Battery Monitor still don't, but I'm working on it. try this: http://crippledcanary.se/?page_id=9
You will have to compile the new kernel. I recommend 2.6.13, couse of some reason I could not start ndiswrapper at 2.6.14 (will try at the weekend, I hope so). mayby You will be lucky...
