Things used to work fine until I moved my 2 hard drives onto the udma66
of my ABIT BE6 card and re-installed Mandrake. I also have 2 cdrom drives
installed on ide0 and ide1.
Now, my ethernet card doesn't seem to function properly. It still works
under windows. I have a Realtek card, and the driver being picked is
I'm sure all my settings are correct. I'm an engineer and know my way
around computers. My best guess is that the problem is that the ethernet
card, and the HPT366 udma66 controller are sharing irq 11
(ide2=0xb000,0xb400,11 ide3=0xbc00,0xc000,11 are the boot params used to get
linux to recognize the HPT366 udma controller).
I've tried fiddling with the BIOS settings to move the network card to
another interrupt, but for some reason, the nic doesn't want to use any
I'd appreciate any suggestions on where to go next.
Thanks in advance.
