okay I'm working on a lab for my linux+ class and I ran into a problem. We had a NIC that wouldn't work so I swaped it for a older one. Both cards are PCI and now the kernel will not load the new NIC so my question is how would I be able to force the kernel to load a network module. I'm using Red Hat Shrike with kernel 2.4.8

Thanks DOCMUR

Usually to force load a module you can use "insmod -f". But i dont think that is advisable.

So you say... your NIC card is not recognized by Linux or it is recognized but driver wont load? Almost all the NIC cards are supported in Linux, never heard of one that doesnt work..
