redhat8 sees net card but cannot activate, tried 3 cards
after installing RH 8 on an old HP PII machine, everything works except the net card. I've read everthing in the forums and tried different configs and removing and re-installing 3 different cards but cannot activate any of them.....
the OS sees each card after install and detection.
i turned off Plug n Play in BIOS after reading that it could create problem
but that didn't help at all.
the card in there now is a 3com 3C905b PCI
i tried an etherlink III ISA card and it wouldn't activate either
i have it set for dhcp
i'm not sure what IRQ to set it at, though I tried using 3 to no avail
the driver module seems to be in the right place as well
please help if you can,
