Question mandrake 10.0 netgear MA401 hell!!!!!!!


I am a total Linux newbie. I have tried to get into it loads of time but the drivers didn't exist and off I returned, tail between legs, to XP.

This time I thought it was different. Everything was spotted by my Mandrake 10 install, and I was surfing the net with my Netgear MA401 wifi card as soon as I logged on the first time. In celebration I formatted my XP partition...more fool me...

y'see, the connection works until you need to reboot, and then it vanishes ('eth1 removed' is the phrase at shutdown), never to come back, no matter what I do.

The only solution is to reinstall Mandrake every time I need to surf.

At least mandrake spots it at all as I have since tried Fedora, Debian, Slackware (alas I'm not nerdy enough) with no luck at all.

If anyone can successfully tell me how to tell MAndrake not to think the card is being removed at shutdown, I will paypal you TEN BUCKS!!!
