Re: New install: net unreachable

Brant & others.....   getting desperate here, please help!

To answer your question, I'm not sure *EXACTLY* how to check if the 
PCMCIA packages are installed, but I believe the answer is yes.

If I look at top, I can see cardmgr running. If I insert/remove the 
3c589 I hear the tell-tale hot-swap beeps, and when the system boots 
or the card is inserted, the network active light comes on on the 
adapter at the appropiate times.

Also, a ping of the machine's own address completes properly in a 
millisecond or two. If I remove the card, pinging its own address 
returns the message "network is unreachable". Pings to any other 
address with the card in result in:
 ping: sendto: operation not permitted
 ping: wrote 207......  64 chars, ret=-1

I had a linux_guru_friend stop by last night to look at the problem, 
he looked at some low level tcpip functionality and saw that arp 
requests were being received by the laptop, but is wasn't sending 
anything out on the network. After mucking with it for a few hours he 
thought he would try a re-install from the rescue disks..... same 
result! We successfully installed debian via nfs over the *EXACT* 
same network and interface, then on rebooting the network doesn't 
work and ping returns "operation not allowed"

Any suggestions please !!!!!!
