Mandrake 10.0 eth0 failure (3COM gigabit - 3C940)


This message is also posted in the network section
(), but since I have had no reply, I try my luck here....

I have just installed Mandrake 10.0 and it works like a charm. The only problem is that my eth0 fails on startup (P4C800 motherboard with onboard gigabit eth).

dmesg gives me the following output:

NET: Registered protocol family 10
Disabled Privacy Extensions on device c035fa20(lo)
IPv6 over IPv4 tunneling driver
sk98lin: Network Device Driver v6.23
(C)Copyright 1999-2004 Marvell(R).
eth0: -- ERROR --
Class: internal Software error
Nr: 0x1ae
Msg: General: Driver release date not initialized
eth0: -- ERROR --
Class: internal Software error
Nr: 0x1ae
Msg: General: Driver release date not initialized

Now, when I open a terminal and start adsl-setup (as root), it works. (dmesg: )

eth0: 3Com Gigabit LOM (3C940)
PrefPort:A RlmtMode:Check Link State
eth0: network connection up using port A
speed: 10
autonegotiation: yes
duplex mode: half
flowctrl: none
irq moderation: disabled
scatter-gather: enabled
eth0: no IPv6 routers present

I would like to have the connection working at boot to enable other users to have internet access without having them to start the connection manually.

Any ideas?
