Description of problem:
the computer is an x86_64 with NFORCE3 chipset. There is a network card on the motherboard, and I also have a 3Com network card installed.
After the installation, I do not have network connection. I cannot run any network configuration software from the desktop (they just don't start). And /sbin/ifconfig gives only IPv6 address (I don't know why, and if it is correct etc.). But I don't get any IP4 address to either of the cards.
I have tried using dhcp with both cards (one at a time) + I also tried the NFORCE card with the current drivers from NVIDIA.
I will attach dmesg and lsmod with the bug report. I'll be happy to provide more info, if needed.
I have also tried to install differet setups. Like standard desktop settings + workstation with some additional software etc.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install the system
2.startup after installation
Actual Results: I don't have any network access, and no access to network tools that would help. Also tries system-config-network, fatal python error, could not import gnomevfs. Aborted.
Expected Results: Network up and running.

If needed, I can also include more of the boot messages etc.
I don't know, but can be related to the same issue?
