Weird sound/crash

I did a couple search's on this site for my problem, yet non were found.

Ok, I start up my comp, works great, I select redhat 9 from grub, works great, then my computer starts doin all the OK's and my enthernet card FAILS (not sure why) but then I put in my user name and password, everuthing is workin great.

BUT when I open any program this BEEPING sound keeps going on and on in a infinite loot, it soon crashes the comp requiring a reboot...

anyone have anything like that???

Thnx I would like some help.

1. What hardware do you use? Your Ethernet fails - what kind of a card is it and how is it configured?

2. Beeping that doesn't stop can indicate a lot of bad things hardware-wise. Many motherboards, like the NF7-S and related models from Abit, are known to beep like an ambulance when it's overheating (in the case of the NF7-S you need to update your BIOS).

1. Its a realtek Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC, I see RTL839 drivers on the selection for ethernet.

2. Its not a motherboard beep, its like a high pitch drum beat comin from the speakers in a infinite loop. Like someone was beatin on the bottom of a coffe can. As soon as I use a program it starts up... not even sure why! but then redhat slowly crashes at that point.

Redhat is on its own harddrive also.

Well I fixed the beep sound by new install.

But anyone got a tutorial on setting up internet with a linisys wireless router (oddly enough I dont have it hooked up wirelessly, but just str8 to the back>)
