I recently installed linux on a Compaq ProLiant 2500 but I am not able to get the ethernet card active. There are actually 2 ethernet cards; one integrated, and one pci based. I have already tried netconfig and it couldn't locate my card. I also poked through the "/etc/rc.d/rc.modules" but I don't *think* I saw it in there. How do I do it? Please help, thanks!

which distribution are you using?

Hiya, I suggest you try the following;

"lsmod", this will list you loaded modules, see is you device is there if no, carry on, if your using 2 or more network cards, ensure they are all there.

"modprobe -t drivers/net *" this will load all network driver modules, or try them until it finds the rightone

and then try

"lsmod" again and see if it's there, it should be.

Then at least you know what modules need to be loaded up.
