I have been using Mandrake for 4 1/2 years, since TRYING to install 9.2, this would be my 9th attempt, never had a problem in the past like this.
My box has a Nvidia Genforce4, working but not fully optimized yet. Anyway checking my boot.log I get this message:
Bringing up interface eth0: failed
All my versions of Mandrake had auto detected & installed the tulip module in the past. In the Network & Internet setup it asks how I am set to the internet = Cable, in the past that was all I selected, this time I used the wizard - it said Lan connection- ethernet card(s) detected. Not sure what to do so I accepted the Lan setup, when I try Mozilla, it says cannot find the web address.
I need the internet connection so I can get the newest Nvidia drivers, and of course to get my e-mail, my wife wants me off her windoze box as soon as possible.
My 9.1 was running like a top, thought it was a good time to blow off my windoze & take the 20 gigs, not my best idea it seems
I had no problems with the etho set up... Just put in the correct IP address, Netmask & Gateway as asked... Setup does run you through etho and lan settings, in 10 beta you can get by just doing the etho settings ( different format )... 9.2 was my first Linux distro...
