network card: SIOCSIFFLAGS:device or resource busy?????
 
Doesn't matter if I install Suse 8.2 or Mandrake 9.1 or Knoppix, I always get the same error when I try to configure the netwaork adapter:
network card: SIOCSIFFLAGS:device or resource busy

My pc is a Compaq evo w4000 (p4 1,5, 512mb, 60hd, yamaha24 12 40 cd burner, scanner hp, audigy)


This is a log of what I'm trying:

My network card is an IntelPro 100 VM network connection, seen by linux as Intel etherexpress pro 100 .. so the driver should be ok.

Any idea????
Thanks a lot
Simone
