I have two computers both with Win98 networked together and networked properly. Recently I installed Linux-Mandrake 7.0 on one of them, but can't get it to work with the network card. During linux boot, I get something like Initialisation Delayed [Failed]. I used the installation programme to setup the NIC.
The NIC is a 3com 3c509b running in Legacy ISA mode (I have tries PNP mode, with reinstalling Linux, but that didn't work either).
All I know about Linux/Unix is what I have worked out in the last month. I need some simple help!!!
