Today I loaded Windows 2000 on the machine. It had no problem seeing the
NIC. I was able to configure it and get on the web. When I reloaded
RedHat 7.0 from scratch I got the same problem as before. I'm not a PC
hardware expert ( I've avoided this for years.) I suspect Linux is
screwing up either the IRQ assigment or the IO port assigment. Is there
some way to debug this other than becoming an export on the eepro100
driver? Is there an option or set of options I can set in modules.conf
that will help?
