Intel 82559 10/100 Ethernet onboard

Hello, am try to Intel 82559 10/100 Ethernet onboard working in RH 7.2.

It appears to load ok, when i go to network config it is installed under device as a 'Intel EtherExpress Pro 100'.

It is also installed under hardware, but when i click edit button in hardware tab it only shows

Intel EtherExpress Pro 100B
IRQ 11

the other settings (mem, IO, DMA) are empty.

I have tried putting some setting in the boxs, but i cannot find a tool that will give me all of them or any docs as to what format they should be entered, as such when i save settings i get error message that 'ethernet card could not be initialised'

This all worked and installed ok with mandrake 8.1

any help would be appriciated.

What does the output of ifconfig give you, and what driver is being loaded for the interface?
