Question Pro/1000 network adapter is not recognized by Mandriva 2006?

I,ve tried to install Mandriva 2006.0 on my Dell Dimension 9150.

It seems that the Intel PRO/1000 network adapter (chip 82573L on motherboard) is not recognised at all by Mandriva 2006. The network interface (PCI Express)works like a dream with XP Home Edition but is not recognized by Mandriva 2006 Club edition or Power pack edition.

ifconfig lists one interface - lo
ifconfig -a lists two interfaces - lo and sit0
(No eth0 nor eth1 can be fond with if config)

I belive that the linux native driver is e1000

modinfo e1000 finds the module but it is not present in /etc/modules for boot time loading

Handware scan (harddrake) finds the network adapter but no kernel module is associated with it.

What am I supposed to do - older similar threads (dated 2004) of the knowledge base give a straight answer - Buy another network adapter. Is that so still in the year 2006? Which adapter do You recommend for 100 Mbit LAN?

All the best P_Ko

this card AFAIK is supported...add e1000 into /etc/modules or whatever modules file your distro modprobe e1000 and watch for any error messages.if not,try restarting networking and check ifconfig.if again not listed try
ifconfig eth0 up
.check again and reply.Best of Luck.between i dont use mandriva uses debian and i answered with that experiance only.
