Linux newb here:

I've got eth0 not active because I guess it can't recognize or doesn't have the right drivers for the NatSemi DP83815??

When I try to activate the network - it says "Determining IP information for eth0... failed; no link present. Check Cable?"
The cable is fine... lol...

Anybody know how I can fix this, because right now - the laptop is usesless without the net. If I can't get on the net how am I supposed to find drivers? idk...


Thanks in advance for your time!
