Booting always freezes up at eth1! I dont evean have more than one ethernet port!


Hey, I'm running Mandrake Community 10.1 (I got it before they changed their name to Mandriva). Booting always freezes up at eth1, and I don't even have more than one ethernet port! It does fine on eth0, then stops and i have to sit and wait for it to resume, after it declares eth1 as failed.
I'm running it on a laptop, though, and it is a Sony Vaio. It's about 5 years old now, but otherwise, Mandrake works awesome on it. So, i hope someone can help me out.

i guess the simplest way would just be to delete /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1

Thank you so much! I am actually dual-booting windows xp and Mandrake, and have always dreaded booting linux! You solved my problem! Except that i didn't feel safe with deleting any files; I just went under root and changed the line in that file that says "ONBOOT=yes" so that it now says "ONBOOT=no". I figured that was mabey safer, since I knew I could change it back if I needed to.
Thank you,
Blake27
