Cannot connect to internet with suse 9.2

I think I have tried all I can try at this point, tried suse 9.1 last night and 9.2 this morning and I still cannot connect to the net.
I am getting errors that the interface is not available.
Ethernet is onboard and is VIA eth-bus-pci 0000 : oe.o configuration:
ERROR: interface not available.
"eth 0 device could not be set up DHCP already running"
at reboot or shutdown, I see
pcmia network failed.

Any suggestions?

If other info is needed, let me know.

I had an Nvidia chipset on my motherboard, and with 9.2 I had to download drivers from their website to get an internet connection. Also, your PCMCIA will always fail if you don't have them installed. You can take them out for your next kernal update. Try 9.3, I didn't need any additional drivers for that.

Well it looks like a VIA LAN driver issue. I'll have to download the drivers and see what happens...
