    installing new ethernet adaptor..


    I recently installed a new ethernet card in my Linux box. I believe it was the Realtek RTL8139 PCI 10/100...
    The card appears to be detected by the Linux Kernel, as it shows up under Configuration; but it doesn't seem to be getting an IP address.
    I don't really know what drivers I should install for this card either

    Please try running netconfig from your favorite console and see if it detects and activates your card, then reboot. If you still cannot pull an IP post your /var/log/syslog file here.

    Was your previous card onboard? if so disable it in BIOS otherwise linux will still use it as primary.
