Hey i'm a real noob to linux. I've decided to go with linux suse 10.0 because of advice from some friends. I'm having trouble networking in suse though. I've got everything installed and all other componets of the os work fine but i cant connect to my windows network or to the internet. When i was installation suse the connection to the internet failed with the notes "cannot read real interface fore eth-bus-pci-0000:06:02.0. terminating. I have tried everything setting up the configeration with dhcp and static ip, configering the default gateway and all but nothing seemed to blink. with the error message i'm woundering if for some reason my hardware isn't supported. Installed i have have two 10/100/1000 linksys cards. I really want to use this computer as a server for my other computer and a web page but i guess i need to get it on the internet first :). Any help with any topic would be great thanks.

What is the NIC you are using? Could you download and try a knoppix CD and get on the Internet with that?
