Weird, now the md5sum is correct after failing with the exact same checksum the three previous times I'd tried it over the last day or two. I had stopped sharing the file with ctorrent prepartory to deleting it, and maybe that made the difference, or perhaps it just took me forever to get the last little bit of the ISO. I'd never had a problem getting a correct md5sum on a downloaded file while sharing with other bittorrent clients. Live and learn, glad I didn't 'rm' the image yet.

Upgrade went well....except.....I am no longer connected to the internet.

DEC 21041 (tulip3) NIC is recognized but ...when I click on activate ....

I get the message "different MAC address than expected, ignoring "

I've tried configuring but it grays out the option of DHCP which is what I have via a D-link router...the static IP is offered but no luck with that so far...

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong ??? It looks good otherwise and I'd like to get it working...

Rob

Code:
jayeola@tp20$ cat /etc/resolv.conf
; generated by /sbin/dhclient-script
nameserver 192.168.1.254

jayeola@tp20$ cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
ONBOOT=no
TYPE=Ethernet

Any help?

Haven't seen that one. See if your MAC address is listed in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/* or something. You can remove it, if you only have one card.

No joy in mudville

It's now set to dhcp....but when I click to activate, the message comes up "tulip device eth0 does not seem to be present,delaying initialization"

Try using the de4x5 driver instead of tulip. Or better de2104x. What does lsmod show?

Thanks for the input but changing drivers etc is beyond my knowledge base....so ....back to 10K...

It works well on this machine, although a bit slow...

Darn. Back when I used Libranet, I was able to set the MAC address for my sis900 net card with ifconfig. I'm using BLAG30002 (happilly!) and after looking at the man page for ifconfig, I guess there's no option to do this here. Any ideas? I know it worked for me when my MAC was all zeroes.

Weird, I have a pc with the same exact card sis900 and it works without any problems. Think it could be some kind of problem with upgrading and not doing a complete install from scratch?

Chris, i don't think he was saying the card didn't work, he was saying he couldn't re-program the MAC address. I'm not really sure why he wants to change MAC addresses though...
