configuring network card

i need some advice on how to configure a network card. how do i tell what address it should use when i run ipconfig or in the start up scripts? (ie, the 0x300 memory address).

not sure about ipconfig.. unless you mean ifconfig but what type of card do you have will help us out in helping you get that card installed.

oops, that should have been ifconfig. i've been switching between linux and win2k too much. the nic is a kingston KNE20T/KNE20BT which from what i can tell on the kingston site should use the ne module on linux.

Try putting the following line just below the "alias eth0 <module_name>" line in /etc/modules.conf (or /etc/conf.modules depending on distro):
options <module_name> io=0X300   irq=x
Obviously, replace the "x" with the desired IRQ.
