    Hi guys,

    I am new to the world of linux. I have downloaded Linux mandriva spring 2008 edition. Setup seems to be okay but I am finding difficulity with configuring network. While doing that I am getting error .

    " unable to find network interface for selected device(using r8169)"

    Typing ifconfig at open konsole as admin.
    I am getting

    Link ncap: Local loopback
    inet addr: 127.0.0.1 Mask 255.0.0

    Thanx guys

    /sbin/lspci | grep -i net
