Ok, I am an extreme newbie here, so any and all help is appreciated.
One of my computers is based on a QDI LegenX DP motherboard with an
onboard Intel 10/100 NIC. The problem is that this NIC stopped Rx'ing
about 3 months ago, so I installed a Realtek 8139 PCI 10/100 card.
Since the onboard NIC cannot be disabled, the machine basically had
two operational ethernet controllers. Now, at the time I did it, the
machine was NT only and it worked fine.
The problem is that I just installed Mandrake 6.0 on it last week. The
Mandrake installation detected and set up the Intel NIC, but I can't
get it to do anything with the Realtek card. I found a module file
called rtl8139.c on the Internet, but I'm clueless as to what I do
Can anyone explain what I need to do/point me to a good walkthrough? I
found everything I need to configure the network AFTER the card is
recognized, but I'm lost as to the first step here.
