I have two computers both running nearly identical dual boot set-ups
of Win NT4 and Suse Linux 6.2. Both came with ethernet cards that I've
never had an occassion to use until now.
I used the networking section of the control panel to configure the
networks for NT.
I used YaST to configure the networking aspects of the two machines
The two machines can talk when both are booted into NT4.
The two machines mutally ping when the first is in Linux and the
second is in NT4.
The machines do not ping when the second machine is in Linux.
I ran ifconfig on the second machine and noticed that it only lists
the loopback connection.
When I rebooted the second machine, I noticed that there was a message
scrolling up the screen about it failing to find the SMZ ethernet
Because the systems talk under NT, I am confident the hardware is
Because the first machine works under linux, I'm pretty sure I used
YaST correctly for the set-up under linux.
Any suggestions on what I should do to investigate why the 2nd machine
isn't working under linux?
Any and all assistance appreciated!!
