    ethernet connection

    I am unable to set up my ethernet connection with linux
    I am using a compaq pressario 2580 Notebook with an internal network card installed
    "National semiCinductor DP38315 (MacPhyter) Ethernet Controller"
    This card works well Under Windows Xp and I am able lo access My Comcast provider

    In attempting to set up my a Network using Linux (Fedora 2.0) I do the following:
    (1) Using the Hardware Browser I find that under Network Devices the item
    "DP38315 (MacPhyter) Ethernet Controller"
    (2) Using the Internet Configuration Wizard with the tab "Ethernet Connection"
    I select Ethernet Card- DP38315 (MacPhyter) Ethernet Controller (eth0)
    and Automatically Obtain IP address
    (3) This returns etho inactive
    Clicking on activate
    I get the error message
    "Natsemi device etho does not seem to be present"

    What am I doing wrong?

    Using Fedora 2 might tell you that you are posting in the wrong forum, also fedora is in version 5 already so that might be a problem too
