I have a machine which has no CD-ROM drive, but it does have a fast
connection to the internet using a D-Link DFE-530TX NIC. I'd like to
install Red Hat 6.0 on this machine using FTP.
When I start the installation and get to the point where I select my NIC
driver, I choose the VIA Rhine driver, and after a couple of seconds, the
installer comes back with "I can't find the device anywhere on your
system!" If I hit Alt-F3, I see the following:
* picked driver VIA Rhine
* running: /bin/insmod /bin/insmod /modules/via-rhine.o
* insmod failed!
If I hit Alt-F5, I see:
Cannot find archive member via-rhine.o: file does not exist in archive
I don't get this "file does not exist" error if I pick any other driver to
try. To me it looks like the via rhine driver is missing from the
bootnet.img for Red Hat 6.0. Is that possible? Has anyone else come across
this? If this is the case, what can I possibly do about it since I can't
install Linux until I have the driver working?
Thanks in advance,
