NETDEV WATCHDOG: Transmit timed out

I am trying to install Debian 3.1 from the boxed DVD set. The PC has 2 Network Cards, one on board (Realtek 8136), and one card (Realtek 8026).

When install started I was asked to select one as my primary interface. With either one I got a message that DHCP could not be configured and essentailly asking if I did have one and pointing out that some are slow to respond. The DHCP server is Winroute on a Win98 box which this machine is destined to replace. Other PCs on the network have no problem, nor does this one under Windows 98 and previously under Mandrake 10.1. (There were other problems with Mandrake, which is why I am trying Debian). I finally configured eth1 manually.

During post install I keep getting the errror message: NETDEV WATCHDOG: transmit timed out. During APT configuration it could not connect to the Debian web site.

The PC is set up as and Winroute is on The DHCP scope is 2-16.

Also the PC is not pingable so I'm assuming that this is a driver problem.

Any help will be appreciated. At the moment the machine is busy installing packages.
