I'm trying to get Debian up on my Dell Dimension system, but I can't get my
network configured. I was going to try again last week, but then real work
intruded on me.
My network card is a 3C905C-TX. It's well supported by Linux - and a reply
from the installer team tells me it's supported by the installer. Can't prove
it by me, though.
My network will not configure either by DHCP or manually. While in the
installer, I see the card name in /etc/network/devnames. While this indicates
that it knows what card it has, it doesn't get started.
Last week, one of you gave me the suggestion to manually insmod the driver.
Sounds like a great idea, and I'm *SURE* I'm missing something obvious,
but ... I'm running from the installer CD. Where do I get the driver so that
I *CAN* insmod it?
Any and all help on getting the network up will be greatly appreciated. I can
only take the machine down on a weekend, so it may be a bit before I can test
