Help  3com 3C940 in ASUS P4C800


hi  I buy a motherboard Asus P4C800. The network card of the motherboard is a 3com 3c940. Linux drivers are available in asus.com but I can't install this  I compile a kernel 2.4.20 and compile drivers. These drivers run well (I think) but i have not a static IP adress. I have configured the ETH0 but not run.
Why??


Sorry , I have a very bad english.

3c2000.o

I have the same motherboard and here it runs just fine. Make sure you have the kernel headers and source installed. I simply followed the instructions that are in the zip file and I got a working driver.

You have to copy the driver to the directory:
/lib/modules/'uname -r'/kernel/drivers/net

In the modules.conf file you have to add the line:
alias eth0 3c2000

Then you run depmod -a

Now you can configure the network with redhat-config-network. Just at the new connection with the proper settings and you should be there.

Greetings,
Jan Hugo Prins

of course, I can do sth in . . . .

#Loading Network Card Driver
insmod 3c2000

but if I load the driver in this way, the other script in rc.local may be
start correctly.

because some network related command can not be done without a network card. . . . . . don't know . . . .
