Can't get network up on Mandrake 10

Boy I sure had hoped that this would have fixed my problem, but unfortunately...

I have just installed 10.0 on a new Soyo SY-K7VME with new drives. I was hoping to use all of the hardware on the board (LAN, sound, video, USB, etc) to reduce the heat build-up in the box. This machine is a printer/disk/web server and rarely even has a monitor,
mouse, or keyboard connected to it (I guess you'd call it a network appliance! )

Anyway, I configured the built-in LAN for DHCP. As I refreshed my DHCP server "clients window," I can see the new MAC address appear and disappear from
the clients list on the DHCP server while the network is restarting on the Mandrake box. This tells me that Mandrake is able to at least talk to the DHCP server (if only for a second.) After the Mandrake box has restarted the LAN, it can ping itself, but nothing else (not even the DHCP server.)

I dissabled the built-in LAN and tried a network card I had in the old server (a previous version of Mandrake) and get exactly the same results.

Any suggestions would be most appreciated!!

Yup and you don't have to go as far as "noapic".

nolapic

would have sufficed. This was on the 9.2 errata pages but strangely not on the 10.0.
