Description of problem:
FC 3 seems to identify the 3c509 card correctly and I can get a dhcp
lease, but there is *no* Internet.
It happened with the initial install from ISO's. System is up-to-date
and still has the same issue.
Removed kudzu from boot sequence (re: old reports of similar issue)
and it did not "fix" the issue.
We have a bunch of old Dell towers in the office and they all have the
same NIC card. I borrowed a couple to see if it was a hardware issue.
I confirmed it is not a hardware issue
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6..10 (Latest as of 2/18/05)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot machine
2. Run dhclient
Actual Results: Get cryptic error message(s) about a duplex error
with no connection ability to send/receive packets.
Expected Results: get on the network and use Internet.
can you paste those 'cryptic messages' ? lspci and dmesg output would be useful too.

Sorry, don't have any other info. I got this off the Internet and looks like
what I got. I'll send you the card if you want, I've got enough of them.
