    Have you even checked if you have the 8139 driver on your system already?

    First of, check if your system recognizes your card:
    Code:
    # dmesg |grep 8139
    Then you'll have to check if the module is probed, the kernel module is named "8139too":
    Code:
    # lsmod | grep 8139too
    If the command does not give any output you can try probing the device with
    Code:
    # modprobe 8139too

    yes, the drivers are installed
    when I try to configure the card, it says the module loaded is 8139too, but the card isn't working

    Does Windows release the DHCP lease for your card when shutting down? If not, that might be the problem

    Try # dhcpcd -kn maybe that solves it.

    I'm about to give up and switch to Fedora, I installed Redhat 9 a while back and had no problems

    What do you mean by 'nothing'? Please be a little bit more specific . The RTL8139 is one of the most common NICs around. Linux supports it out of the box.

    well, at first I tried it and it said the command wasn't found, so I installed the dhcp package from the distro cd, and tried it again and it just didn't do anything........I typed it at a root command line and it didn't give me a message of confirmation or an error, it just advanced to the next line

    ah, maybe:
    Code:
    # dhcpcd -kn eth1
    You can try using 'netcardconfig' to set it up
    Code:
    # /usr/sbin/netcardconfig

    i tried dhcpcd -kn eth1 and it just advanced to the next line
    I tried /usr/sbin/netcardconfig and the file doesn't exist

    I give up, I just deleted Mandriva, maybe I'll try Fedora next
