Redhat problems on Dell XpiCD portable

Post by David Spindl » Sun, 19 Oct 1997 04:00:00

I am trying to install redhat 4.2 on my dell XpiCD portable. It has a
port replicator with a built in 3COM 3C509. However Redhat can not seem
to use it. I select autoprobe and then I enter my IP
address,gateway,mask,nameserver at this point it tries to do the DNS
lookup to determine my hostname but times-out if you try it again it
crashes. Any suggestions?

P.S. All the network infomation(address etc.) is correct.
Please email your response.
