Hi Mech1333,
I did some google and I found a link specific to your type of machine. Here is it http://sylvestre.ledru.info/howto/presario_2500_vo.php. The driver for your board is natsemi. You may see if it is loaded with "lsmod". Of course you must enter this command as user root. If this module does not appear in the list shown by the previous command, you may try to load it, by entering
Code:
modprobe natsemi
If the operation suceeds, you will see no message. If the load complains for any reason, please try to post the exact message it appeared at console. This helps to find the problem.
Once the module is loaded the ethernet may be configured with "/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1". If, after this you have ethernet up, edit the "/etc/modules.conf", inserting a line "alias eth0 natsemi".
This will automatically load the module during boot, bring the ethernet in the proper time.

Hi Mech1333,
To edit /etc/modules.conf you have to be root. It won't work only if your disk is mounted as read only . This must happen only if you are booting from cd.
