Has anyone setup a Compaq embedded NIC to work with Vector 5.8 Huh
Should be an Accton 10/100 device. Does anyone Know of a Linux Driver for these
embedded NIC's ?
I thought this might be a good place to start with this problem. Newly installed system
does not see any Ethernet device installed. I have 5.8 Std. Edition on this box, with an
AMD 1350 CPU, and 256 MB RAM.

Thanks,

Coop

Don't know a thing about your card, but when I'm trying to set up VL on a unknown system.  I always run:
Quote
lspci -nn
as root. The -nn will give you a text description of the hardware and the numeric ID's.  These ID's will precisely tell you what you have. Googling these ID's have never failed me in finding a solution, if one has been invented yet.

Example:
lspci -nn on my laptop lists this nic card:
Quote
06:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8101E PCI Express Fast Ethernet controller [10ec:8136] (rev 01)
I would then Google this number 10ec:8136 and go from there.
