first step: check out if your network module was loaded properly in linux.
for my NE2000 card the command is

modprobe ne io=0x340
but you can also in /proc/net/

then you should set up your network with linuxconf network base configuratio
both machines must be on the same netmask: ex:
your MSSux machine IP ex:
your REDHAT IP ex:
confirm all and leave linuxconf

last step: check out on the linuxmachine if your network was installed with


then it lists all net devices, eth0 and lo and IP's and Subnetmask


1. Linking two PC together...


I'm very new to Linux.  So I encounter quite a lot of problems when playing
with it.

Well, I have two PC at home, one is 486DX-50 and one is only 286 w/ 1MB RAM.
They are linked together using 2 ethernet card (NE2000 compatible).  I have
installed Linux in the 486.  Now, I want to use also the 286 (running DOS)
to remote login to the 486.  But I just don't know what to do.

Could anyone tell me where I can get reference about this? or explain it to
me here?  Thank you very much.
