Hey there,

For the passed two hours I've been trying to find a way to install ubuntu or any other distro on to my power edge 1550.

The Cd-ROM is supposedly "working" but it just repeatdly blinks and doesn't detect any of my CD's so I am forced to booting from a floppy and looking for ways to do a network boot.

eventually I found a bootdisk.img from which I booted and it allowed me to install from FTP/HTTP but it needs my network card's driver.

Once it asked me for the other disc with the drivers, I popped in that mainstream driver floppy called "netird.img" or something similar..

Unfortunately it didn't have the driver for my network card


Network Adapter (NIC): Intel Corporation 82557/8/9 [Ethernet Pro 100] (rev 0


So - does anyone know how I can get the driver for that onto a floppy so I can continue with my network install?

I looked on the Intel website but it had a .exe driver for it, which wasn't much help in this case

Any help is appreciated, thanks
