RE: Kernel Upgrade Problems - IBM T23
It is the built-in Ethernet interface, I believe Intel EtherPro 100 or
some variation. Seems to DHCP fine based off the initial ide-pci
Which specific config files should I copy when I upgrade my kernel to
2.4.8 and I assume I'll have to recompile the module for 2.4.8 as well?
I did try to configure it in interfaces but it seems to not want to dhcp
an address so I thought I was missing something.
Sorry for the newbie questions, I'm actually pretty good when it comes
to routing/switching if you ever need any help there... :)

Is eth0 builtin? If so, you can configure it for DHCP via
/etc/network/interfaces. See the man page on interfaces(5):
% man interfaces
If eth0 is a PC card, then you can specify to use DHCP when the card is
configured by setting
Hope that helps.
