Ok, in my Network Configuration dialog I see tabs for Devices, Hardware,
DNS, and Hosts. Under Devices, it lists one entry "Inactive - eth0 - eth0
- Ethernet". Under Hardware it lists one entry "DEC 21*40 and clones",
Ethernet, eth0". Under DNS I chose "laptop" for my Hostname, and it shows
192.168.0.1 for the primary DNS. Under the Hosts tab it has one entry
"127.0.0.1, localhost.localdomain, localhost".
When I try to activate my device, it waits a minute and always fails,
"activating network device eth0, please wait..." with the error msg "cannot
activate network device eth0... failed.", and "Determining IP information
for eth0... failed."
What gives? Is my 100/10 card not compatible? It's the common one sold at
Wally-World and it works great between two of my XP machines.
Samba is installed and I used "/etc/rc.d/init.d/smb start" to get it
running which reported [OK].
