Description of problem:
The module 'ne' is not present in the kernel. Hence the nic
configuration gui cannot configure NE2000 nics despite offering the
possibility in the adapter chooser dialog.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
system-config-network-1.3.16-1 / kernel-2.6.5-1.327
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run system-config-network
2. Tab 'Hardware'; 'New'; 'Ethernet'
3. 'Adapter': NE1000, NE2000, and compatible
Actual Results: Command failed: /sbin/modprobe ne
FATAL: Module ne not found
Expected Results: Module ne should have been loaded.
It'd be nice to also have the installer know this driver. Couldn't do
an NFS install of fc2t3 with an NE2000 clone installed.
Confirm. Driver was also missing in Test 2.
what about the ne2k-pci module?
It's an old ISA card. ne2k-pci didn't work.
CONFIG_NE2000 is not set in the kernel config
reassigning to component kernel
reenabled in update kernel
