    Problem with NIC


    I just installed Fedora 8 on my Compaq Presario 3000 P4. The problem is when Fedora is loading it fails to recieve an IP. In network settins it shows the nic on eth0 but its not active. I try to activate it and get an error it can not connect or obtain and IP address. I have tried hooking it up at home and at work with no luck. I am guessing it could have something to do with the drivers installed. Anyone else have this problem?
