Question Sis900 Network Card not working.

Hi, guys: I am a newbie of red.

My computer motherboard is ASUS P4S333-M, I have an integrated network card on board. It's is SIS900 type(XP box displayed as this). And I installed the Redhat 8.0 downloaded and cut to the CDs from the first three ISO files, the kernel version is (2.4.18-14).

Once everything (GRUB multi boot) installed and made my network configured using the system setting tools->network. I can ping myself (for example I setup my own ip and no problem, and also I can use modprobe sis900. Also during system booting up there is no err repport on eth0 start-up. But I never can ping any computer connected to the same network. even my router

errors like following sample:


PING ( from : 56(84) bytes of data.
From ( icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable
From ( icmp_seq=2 Destination Host Unreachable

I just want to ask you guys, does anybody install the Redhat 8 on this type box before and do you have any network problem? And would you pls give me suggestions on this. is my driver not properly installed? Who knows how to detect or check whether my network is properly installed?

Thanks a lot. and really need help. is really very inconvenient running Redhat without network.
