Newbie crashes suse 10

I tried to bump the mouse to wake up the computer so I could look at the tvlistings web site and see if any movies were on tonight... It was stuck, it would not wake or do anything! I think it could have been a hardware ethernet failure in the supermicro motherboard because I notice lately after booting it takes some time before the internet connection is active and the boot screen mention eth stuff but I'm not sure what it all means.

I pressed the reset button and it failed to reboot... I tried again and it booted!

End of failed boot (lock up)

If the gigabit motherboard ethernet port completely up and dies and I put in a 10/100 pci network card, will linux detect it and make use of it?

Yes. You'll have to run Yast and setup the card and disable the old card. But yes it will work.

Looks like an ethereal hardware temporal malfunction. You'll need to buy a new computer.
