Comment 5 Michael Fulbright 2002-11-01 17:24:36 UTC
Could you try this?

Boot the first CD of the installer, get to the splash screen for the installer,
then hit cntl-alt-f2 to goto vc2.

At the shell prompt there type:

cat /proc/net/dev

There should be a line for every network device we detected hardware for and
loaded a module.

Could you report back what devices have a line in the output please?

Comment 6 Need Real Name 2002-11-01 18:01:12 UTC
There is a line for lo folowed by several zeros.

Comment 7 Jeremy Katz 2003-02-14 16:34:40 UTC
Then kudzu didn't find your network card.  Could you please provide the output
of /sbin/lspci -v and /sbin/lspci -vn?
