i connect the monitor and key board to that box to see what is on boot
and on boot i saw only one line like this

lilo loading cache................
then blank screen
it works great
so i make copy of that hard disk
and put in other system as dupe
so the booth systems same hdd every thing same
now problem is both system run on the orignal lan card only it means every thing exccepted but it didnt except the other lan card
dont think about drivers because i bring the same make model an version
only diffrence is mac address
it means the cache box is some ware the mac address is stored to tally if the orignal one ok ifup eth0 then get connection if not ignore and ifeth0 down
as i already cote there is no console no boot prompt only a line
lilo loading cache..................
then blank screen
i tryed ctrl-x get prompt
boot:
at any command it reply image not found then exact 50 seconds run automatic
lilo loading cache............

in short to explain again it exccept every thing motherboard cpu and -and -and only not exccept lan card change
so i mount this hdd to check what is in side i check all files
find demsg find lilo.conf
only unable to open and mount this partition
/dev/hdb2 26 1240 9759487+ f Win95 Ext'd (LBA)
the first line of dmesg is
linux version 2.2.19
these are partitions

if you can login to webmin as the root user, you should be able to change hardware settings via the webmin for your network card.

(There is a networking icon on webmin)

you can also (if it is installed) open a telnet/ssh window from webmin as well

thanks for taking intrest
please need more detailed reply
as i state that this is made by a good expert so he didnt leave any thing in webmin only one can change ip/dns/gateway/netmask just
and nothing you can do
so need the way via mounting to working system
i mount this as hdb and it is ext2 so only two partitios there hdb1 and hdb5 other is swap
i search every excecutable file in both to search where this mac stored which tally the new card and send signal for ifdown eth0

i try tracert with connected win98 pc tracert reach the address but
webin didnt reach after change lan card
the partitions

/dev/hdb5 26 1224 9630936 83 Linux
/dev/hdb6 1225 1240 128488+ 82 Linux swap
