    Hi Mike Tbob,

    dhcpd - also returns the same error - command not found.

    ping - immediately returns unknown host google.com

    As for the 8250, I have an add-on card for extra serial (RS232) port. The drivers for this have not been loaded. The system behavior is unpredictably. Some times it logs in fast and some times takes a while. As mentioned earlier the network works fine under windows. Linux Virus?????

    I seriously doubt you have a virus, Linux is very secure and there are only a few virus that actually affect Linux systems. See this link for Security References.

    regarding your system being slow, Open a terminal and login as root and issue this command to find out what is using all your system resources.
    Code:
    top
    You'll see output similar to this.
    top - 01:04:24 up 34 days, 4:49, 5 users, load average: 0.19, 0.22, 0.18
    Tasks: 77 total, 2 running, 75 sleeping, 0 stopped, 0 zombie

    5 root 15 -5 0 0 0 S 0.0 0.0 0:20.04 events/0
    Now you can see memory usage, CPU usage and other things. If you can see something using 100% CPU, you can kill that process with it's PID number. For example, if I want to kill "kicker", I would issue
    kill 15091. Just be sure of what you kill, or you might kill something that forces you to reboot. For more info on top, see the man pages.
    Code:
    man top

    Hello Mike Tbob,
    Ran top, but did not see anything unusual. Tasks 136, 2 running 134 sleeping, 0 stopped, 0 Zombie. About 17 tasks were listed and nothing took any CPU % more than 1. The first entry was

    PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM Time Command
    3666 root 15 0 42876 18m 6144 s 1 1.0 0:02.03 xorg

    Only the above has a llarge VIRT number (thoug I don't know what this is). May be this will help.

    Nothing to be concerned about here, I have similar VIRT numbers. Are you using the Vesa driver for video?
    Code:
    grep Driver /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    For the Network, Try
    Code:
    /etc/sysconfig/network restart

    Yep, you are using the Vesa driver, and that might explain why the system is slow and unresponsive. Once you get the network up, fixing this will be easy.

    The /etc/sysconfig/network restart needs to be run as root.
    su - (always include the - hyphen)
    (enter root password)

    Hi Mike Tbob,
    I have logged in as root!!!!! and service network restart works but throws out an error

    #service network restart

    Shutting down interface: [OK]
    Shutting down loopback interface: [OK]
    Disabling IPv4 packet forwarding: net.ipv4.ip_forward=0 [OK]

    Bringing up loopback interface [OK]
    Bringing up interface eth0: [OK]
    Determining IP information for eth0 ....failed [FAILED]

    My Netgear router is ON and when the system boots there is no problem but now it reports failed. Also the earlier error "permission denied" are really baffling.

    Hi Mike Tbob,
    In continuation to my earlier post, I unplugged the net cable and booted the system. While booting, it has taken more time while waiting for getting IP address but after boot the log-in was fast and also opening the terminal window was fast. I plugged the net cable and tried to activate the connection but after some time got an error failed. I thought this might help in resolving the problem. Thank you.

    [root@localhost r8169-6.005.00]# lsmod | grep r8169
    [root@localhost r8169-6.005.00]# make clean install
    make -C src/ clean

    Sorry Guys,
    I haven't been feeling well for the past week, have you had any more luck getting this device to work yet?

    Fw@dmin, I think you need to just run "make" or "make install" instead of "make clean install"
