Description Jim Paradis 2005-02-11 17:04:30 EST
The forcedeth driver should be added to the list of network drivers included on
the boot image for RHEL3.  This is needed for native support of nVidia network
controllers.  HP is keenly interested in this, among others.

Checked in taroon branch - will be in next anaconda build.

Do you have a box to test this against?
Comment 2 Jim Paradis 2005-02-14 10:18:12 EST
I have said box sitting under my desk waiting to test this when it's built :)
Comment 3 Jim Paradis 2005-05-04 17:38:03 EDT
Okay, I tested it and this functionality is definitely in the U5 build.  The
system came up and recognized the CK804 ethernet right away.
