Hi Pierre,

Do you happen to know or can you find out the make/model of your NIC?

If not then the model of your system should give us enough info to find this out for you,

Thanks

For reference, you have an Intel 82567 GB adaptor on that model

Drivers can be found here

they are in a tar foramt and would need to be compiled from source AFAIK

the monitor i will have to get back to you on

hope that helps

Hi aryys,
Thanks a lot for your effort. Actually, I gave up on the WS4 and installed fedora 11. Everything went fine.
