    HELP - can't initialize eth0!

    I'm installing Mandriva for the first time. The verbose boot log says my ethernet card has an "unexpected mac address".

    Is this a firewall problem? I installed with firewall and web/mail servers.

    I am trying to give the card a static ip of and use DHCP for my PPOE connection.

    Also, I see the sit0 device -- what is it?

    Thanks for any help you can offer, it has been a frustrating day!
