I'm trying to do an install with the last iso you made us available
(thanks a lot one more time) and I hit this wall :
the ethernet board isn't recognised.
My configuration : is a power6 based machine
Machine type-model: 8203-E4A
My ethernet board needs this module : ehea
it seems it's not available :
ls /lib/modules/2.6.32-5-powerpc64/kernel/drivers/net/

dl2k.ko        ixgb           r8169.ko       tg3.ko

Do you have any idea how to solve this ?

Thanks in advance for any hint, I prefer to avoid to reach yaboot part
without a clean and solid base. xavier
