This was a modconf bug that has already been fixed in the latest version in
modconf/boot floppies. Please test boot floppies versions >=2.2.6
In reference to a message from Clyde Wilson, dated Feb 07:
> Package: base
> Version: 20000207
> Severity: important
> I downloaded the boot and root disks, the driver.tgz and base.tgz files.
> I installed the module 3c590 and the system accepted my network
> parameters. When the system rebooted itself it could not find my
> ethernet card and the parameters in /etc/init.d/network had defaulted
> back to 192.168.1.1, etc. I ran modconf and it showed that 3c590 had
> never been installed. I reinstalled it, and changed /etc/init.d/network
> to the correct parameters. Now everything works fine.
> This did not occur on the January 3, 2000 release of Potato which was
> installed in the same way. The above happened with the files from the
> January 27, 2000 release. I repeated the install a week later and
> got the same results.
