Fedora Core 3 - Determining IP information failed

Hi all,

I just installed Fedora Core 3 succesfully, but it seems that determining IP information fails.

The following information is displayed during startup:

Determining IP information ... failed; no link present. Chech cable?

The cable and the network card has been checked. The network card is a HomePNA compatible card with AMD chipset. It seems that the card has been succesfully identified.

Any idea how to solve this issue?

Regards Sami Maisniemi

The IP address is determined by DCHP (dynamic IP address). Is there any way I can solve the current IP address?

This is really annoying bug, because otherwise Fedora seems to be a perfect solution.
