Hi!

    I need help to install a second ethernet adapter (ne2000 compatible)on Red Hat 4.1.
    I now how to do it in Slackware but in RedHat doesn't work!
    I used the net config tools on Xwindows but still didn't work.

    In startup, after the ETH0 probe, there is a message like:
    "modprobe: can't locate eth1 module"
    "Delaying eth1 initialization "

Thanks in advance,

                    Sergio Sousa

Usually this kind of trouble is about the interrupt and port.
Did you specify the address in the option of loading modules,
because the kernel detect the first automatically,the second no.
So it's important to say to the module eth that the port,irq
of second card is this.

Try to load the driver for this card interactively.

Use modprobe therefore:

(from manpage of modprobe):


       modprobe -t net
              Load  one  of  the  modules  that are stored in the
              directory tagged  "net".   Each  module  are  tried
              until one succeed (default: /lib/modules/net).

       modprobe -a -t boot
              All modules that are stored in the directory tagged
              "boot" will be loaded (default: /lib/modules/boot).

       modprobe slip.o
              This  will  attempt to load the module slhc.o if it
              was not previously loaded, since  the  slip  module
              needs  the  functionality in the slhc module.  This
              dependency will be  described  in  the  file  "mod-
              ules.dep" that was created automatically by depmod

       modprobe -r slip.o
              will  unload  slip.o.  It  will  also unload slhc.o
              automatically, unless it is used by some other mod-

<<<< End of manpage

This way you can test whether your card is recognized by the driver.

Good Luck.
