Thumbs down Mandrake 10 Network Problems

Hi there...

I have helped my brother install mandrake 10.0 community edition.

After some minor problems we got the machine working.

BUT, the networking card weren't setup. Well, we configured it through the GUI, and it worked.
Until we rebooted the system. Then we had the same problem. No network, therefore, no internet.
It worked again, after a configuration through the GUI.

But that's pretty bad, that he HAS to configure his network every time he starts.

Any ideas how to help this out?

Thanks in advance

add the name of the driver manually into /etc/modprobe.preload

The file is commented, but its easy anyways. For example, if you have a card that takes the e100 module, that's whaty you'd enter in the file
I bet that it'll be there on reboot (Did you notice that the settings were there when you reboot, just no card detected at boot...)
