i'm running Vector Linux which is a Slackware derivative. the version i have is using the 2.6.13 kernel.
anyhow, i just installed it on my laptop, and added an Oviling rj45 lan card (abocom dec-tulip compatible). i have the module working properly, and my network device (eth0) set to use dhcp
however, on startup, dhcp ALWAYS fails to start and i have no idea how to get it working. i have my laptop linked to a 5 port network hub, allong with my desktop pc and my cable modem, so i dont know why my laptop's dhcp fails and my desktop is able to connect to the internet with no problems.
plz, i'm kinda desperate to get this working, been trying for days so any help is appreciated.
