getting nforce4 NIC to work with forcedeth driver.
I have a Biostar T6100+amd64 setup and I tried netinst image for amd64
about a month ago and it could not get the nforce4 NIC to work.
It will identify load the forcedeth driver but nothing would happen
after that. I can see eth0 but it would not get address from dhcp
server. Even if I assign manual address, I cannot use it. BTW, the same
machine boots XP64 fine and the NIC works as expected with standard
nvidia XP64 dirver.
I am wondering if things have changed and I should try getting new
image. Or something is specifically wrong with my MB that prevents
forcedeth to work properly in linux. Any ideas? Opinions?
