Ok I have compiled the tcp/ip kernel.  I have setup the
networking as far as I know.  I have used the netconfig and
ifconfig.  When I look at rc.inet1 it seems to have everthing in it.  The machine autofinds the ne2000 network card on bootup and does no give any errors.  If I type route or route -n I recieve nothing but the heading.  Should't I atleast have the loop back showing.  I am trying to set up a  network between a linux machine and a win95 machine.

Thanks,
Charlie.

Hi,

Try compiling a kernel with ONLY NE2000 support.  Sometimes other network adapter kernel drivers can mess with the NE2000 setup.  If you've already done that, then what's the output of ifconfig?  It should show an eth0 on your happy IP address with your netmask and everything.  If it doesn't, something's wrong-- type ifconfig eth0 and tell me what happens.

Does the machine you're using connect to the network under other operating systems?

Please reject this answer if it doesn't solve your problem-- i'm doing mostly answers now since a lot of the questions on here don't go away after they're resolved!

See ya...
