sajjid, just read your message about bringing a network interface card up and running. i am currently experiencing the same problem (i.e. kernel doesn't detect the card). my question: does your answer only apply to the case when the driver is compiled as a module? or do i have to take these steps also when i compiled the driver into the kernel? -mario ----- Original Message ----- From: "A.Sajjad Zaidi" <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: <email@example.com> Sent: Tuesday, March 05, 2002 14:24 Subject: Re: [tlug] RH7.2 - no linuxconf? > -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- > Hash: SHA1 > > Hi Scott, > > linuxconfig has always been a pain for me and never got things right. > > Try using '/usr/sbin/netconfig'.
