Re: (more progress) Network card not detected or listed in installation

Just for fun (and because I am frustrated and looking for other options
at this point), I downloaded and installed the Mandrake 9.1 network.img
boot disk and booted my machine with it.

It laoded the driver for the network device: National Semi:DP8310 10/100
Ethernet. Asked me if I wanted to configure via dhcp, asked for a
hostname, and brought up the network.

alt+f4 shows 
'natsemi dp8381x driver, version 1.07+LK1.0.17, Sept, 2002
originally by Donald Becker
2.4.x kernel port by Jeff Garzink, Tjeerd Mulder
eth0: NatSemi DP8381[56] 
eth0: link up'.

My Router/DHCP server sees the machine and the machine got the correct
values from DHCP. (I just dont have enough RAM for the Mandrake 9.1
install so I am still looking at Debian)

Is this information helpful?
