After muchos problemas, I got my little two computer LAN going. Then yesterday afternoon, I thought, hey, why not boot Mandrake 10 using the new 2.6 kernel, as in the lilo. See how it goes.
Well, it runs a thing called zcip on boot, which takes ages to bring up the eth0, also starts another eth0:9, assigns wild ip addresses (, and generally ruined my carefully nurtured ifconfig.
What is this zcip? And how can I stop it? I want my network back. It was weeks of trying! Even a reboot with the old kernel 2.4 didn't get rid of it!
Host unreachable is not what I want to hear from ping.

Hey I have the exact same problem, except for the dual computer lan thing.

Recently I've been having problem on boot for bringing up the eth0, it says: zcip sending probe... sending probe... and after a few minutes it says "claiming ownership". What the hell does that mean and how do I stop it?

I also have a eth0:9 listed on my ifconfig. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm using mandrake9.2 w/ kernel 2.6.7
