Question about Marvell Yukon Lan card Driver

Dear Friends ,

I have to install "Marvell Yukon 88E8038" Lan
Driver in windows XP , But I can't install it into Redhat Linux (RHEL 4 ). Last 7 days , I m trying to install it with the help of README file .

In this moment , I got the Marvell Lanard as eth0 , I also set the IP address but the device eth0 will not be activated .Using 'service network restart' it shows the eth0 is up, but it is not activated and I dont get the IP address . I dont understand where is the problem .

Can any body plz help me to give the appropriate document/ procedure to install it .

Well if it where me, then I'd check it so see if it's up by doing
su -
and then entering the root password when prompted. Then
and see what you get i.e. you should see eth0 and lo is so, then the system is seeing the ethernet card.

So from there, I'd be guessing if the ethernet card is talking to the router. You should normally have them in the same range i.e. if the router has the IP address set to then I'd set the network card to (or course you'd set it to whatever, but as I understand it, it still needs to be 10.0.0.*).

Or you could just try pinging the router with
ping -3 c
don't forget you'd have to change the example IP address I've used to whatever the router is set to - if it's all set up for DHCP then I'm sorry I don't know - I'm using static IP's throughout!
