The drivers for the CNet PRO 200 can be found at in the drivers section.

Now, admittedly I am a newbie, but I can't seem to get the drivers to install in Red Hat 9, seeing as the drivers included for linux are only up to Red Hat 7. The commands in the readme file produce a ton of errors and result in the nic not being installed. Any help on this would be appreciated.

OK, never mind... I had been getting a wierd error at startup about eth0 failing because of some bad chain rule or something like that. It turns out that the card was failing due to the fact that I hadn't given the card an IP address, and I had set it up to look for one through DHCP, which looks for a server to give it one through the network. So of course, seeing as this system IS the server... Oops. It seems to work fine, now... now it's time to actually set up the network.

Cnet Pro 200wl

I am new to Linux. I have installed a dual boot XP - Debian system on my computer using Lilo. (hda=linux, hdb=xp). I am trying to configure my Ethernet connection but am having trouble with the driver.

I have a C-Net Pro 200WL Ethernet card. I have downloaded the driver from and moved the file into linux. I untarred the file and ran the Make command as directed in the readme.txt. When I try the insmod command, it doesn't work. It keeps telling me that my module is configured for the 2.4.18 kernel while I am running 2.4.18-bf2.4. I downloaded the source code for 2.4.18 because apparently you can't download 2.4.18-bf2.4.

Also... I now realize that the module I am trying to configure is in my FAT32 shared partition. Is that a problem?

Any help or direction would be appreciated. I'm tired of beating my head against the computer.
