I installed a new NIC in a frien's RH 6.2 box today.
It went something like this:
Open the case.
Push out the blanking plate
Swear at the case manufacturer for using push out blanking plates
resulting in me not having enough screws any more.
Put in the NIC
Screw it up.
Put the case on
Plug bits in
Enter the IP address.
I had to include the hardware bit to make it look like I'd done something.
It's too easy. This has been my experience (more or less) with adding
hardware since RH5.2 (my forst distro). This is why I am skeptical about
the wintrolls with all these problems. I've simply never had them.
All problems I have had have been with faulty hardware. All the other
problems have been with Win9X which is quite frankly awful.
