LAN card trouble! Need a Linux guru!

Post by Sudd » Fri, 23 Jul 1999 04:00:00

I'm trying to install network support in my Mandrake 6.0 distribution of
Linux.  My card is a EtherFast 10/100 from LinkSys.  It uses the tulip

After updating the dependencies (depmod -a) I issue a modprobe tulip.o
command and get the following message:

init_module: Device or Resource busy

I looked in the /var/log/message file and found:

Localhost kernel: Unknown Tulip-style PCI ethernet chip type 11ad c115
detected not configured.

Can any Linux gurus out there help me configure Linux for my LAN?



1. Need help on Linux setup LAN within LAN


   I'm using RH7.2 on my research lab trying to run a small Intranet
within my college. I have primary name server from my LAN
administrator and a gateway from him so that my machines can browse
the Net.
   Okay, here's my question :

   I'm setting up a RH7.2 linux server for this few computers for
Intranet trial run, running Mail,Usenet and Web server. Given that all
the other computers in the organisation is given a DHCP meaning
dynamic ip address from my SysAdmin, he advises me to simply put a
static ip( on my Linux box and make use of that instead
of dynamic ip.
   My request is that, shall i set up a DNS server too so that other
machine can refer to instead of using ? If i need a DNS server, what shall i do to set it up ?
   Can anyone point me to any tutorials or manuals/doc that i must go
through ?

Thank you.
