Description dq 2006-04-12 23:41:30 EDT
Description of problem:
I can't connect to the Internet because eth0 fails using default params like 
using DHCP to autodetect. I installed fedora core 1 on my 2.5ghz celeron/256mb 
compaq presario sr1110nx/RealTek RTL8139 Family PCI Fast Ethernet NIC, which 
works in win xp. The network activated with a Dell P3-733/128mb/3com NIC using 
default params. Could it be the NIC?  
BTW, I had to install Fedora using: 'linux acpi=off' because it repeatedly 
reboots using CD, but I didn't have to with the Dell PC
Thanks in advance...

Fedora Core 1 is maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security updates
only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and reassign to the
Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and hasn't been resolved in
the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test release, reopen and change the
version to match.


NOTE: Fedora Core 1 is reaching the final end of support even by the Legacy
project. After Fedora Core 6 Test 2 is released (currently scheduled for July
26th), there will be no more security updates for FC1. Please use these next two
weeks to upgrade any remaining FC1 systems to a current release.
