My system is an Athlon XP 2800+, on an MSI K7N2 Delta Mobo based on the
NForce 2 chipset. I have a dual boot with WinXP and Fedora Core 2 and
spend 99% of my time in FC2. Once in a while I shut the system down.
When I boot from a cold boot right into FC2, the forcedeth driver
appears not to work. I am not able to get to the net over my cable
mode. Bringing eth0 up and down, unplugging the network cable does
nothing. However, if I reboot into WinXP, and then reboot right away
back into FC2, the forcedeth driver works like a champ.
Is there anything I can do to look into what might be causing this
issue? Any more information I may be able to send to help?
Thanks for any help,
