Red Hat 8.0 Network Card Issues
 
I am a new user to Linux and am having trouble with network configs....

I have a dell latitude CPx w/ a Xircom Real Port 10/100 Modem and Network card (model number RBEM56G-100.)

My first attempt to install linux was with Red Hat 7.3. The install process worked - but when I logged on the machine would not get a DHCP address. I logged in as root - ran netconfig. I chose DHCP in this config process and rebooted - all worked fine.

I then decided to install Red Hat 8.0 on the same machine(deleting the 7.3 partitions.) Again the config process went fine (even during the config process the lights on the xircom card were lit - and the machine was actually leased an IP address.) After the install process I logged on to the machine and the network card was not up (the lights on the card are not even blinking.)

I then attempted to run service network restart

when doing so I get the following response:

Brings up loop interface ok
Attempted to bring up eth0 - and it fails with the following error:

Error for wireless request "Seth Encode" (8B2A):
SET failed on device eth0 ; No Such Device
Error for wireless request "Seth ESSID" (8B1A):
SET failed on device eth0; No Such Device


Determining IP information for eth0...SIOCSIFADDR: no such device
eth0: unknown interface: No Such Device
eth0: unknown interface: No Such Device
Failed



Any help is appreciated!

Okay so after some more searching on the net - I found the command to start PCMCIA services:

etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia start

Everything then began to work.

Does anyone have a suggestion on how to make the pcmcia start command load before the network modules during boot up?

More details...

So after I got it working (still dont have the automatic startup of the PCMCIA per the last post) I am still seeing weird behavior.

If I attemp to start pcmcia services- and the restart network services I get an error - and it looses the IP connection. I then have to stop PCMCIA serverices and restart them. See below:

Thanks
Jon
