I am relatively new to linux and have 2 unrelated problems.
I have a cable modem and I load my network card driver as a module.
I would like to know how do I make this happen automatically during the boot
process and how to I modify the order in whuch certain commands are
Right now my system tries to start the network, then loads dhcpcd but it
does not load the kernel module for the network card. I have to manually
load the driver (modprobe ne2k-pci) then issue the network command. I looked
in the init scripts but these are so complex I have no idea what they mean
or how to change things. Any one knows how to help?
second problem - lilo
I have windows nt and linux. I use NT OS Loader to choose either NT or Linux
when i boot. I also have 2 hard disks, NT is on the first (primary master)
and Linux is on the second (secondary master). drive C uses NTFS. Originally
I had RedHat 5.1 and could load linux from NT OS Loader without problem.
Since i upgraded to RedHat 5.2 I have been unable to load Linux from NT OS
Loader. I can only use a floppy to boot to Linux. The thing is I don't think
the problem is the OS Loader. I get the LILO prompt after select linux but
nothings happens afterwards. Does anyone have a clue how I can proceed from
Any help on either problem will be appreciated.
