I have an eMachines computer that my kids use that I'm trying to get going
with Sarge. If I use Knoppix/Debian Unstable, it finds eth0, gets IP from
DHCP on my LAN, and we're on the Net fine. However, the Sarge installer
does NOT get IP and therefore doesn't find the Internet. Interestingly,
both Sarge and Knoppix/Sid are using the REALTEK 8139too driver. Thus I
don't know why Sid finds the DHCP server and Sarge doesn't. I've tried
manually configuring with a static IP, but that doesn't work either.
Anyone been here before and/or suggest ways to get Sarge talking to eth0?
eth0 does show in ifconfig -a with a hardware address.
Here's a chance to help me get several young, impressionable minds to know
there IS a choice!
Thanks - John
