Description Warren Mansur 2001-03-09 14:57:41 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)

I have a Compaq Deskpro EN (bought in January 2001), which comes with a 
built in NIC "Intel PRO 100/VM".  Upon installation, RedHat 7.0 decided to 
use the eepro100 module.  However, this is incorrect and the module will 
not work.  The correct module is e100.  When I went into LinuxConf and 
selected e100 as the driver, it worked properly.  lspci also does not 
determine what card this is, it only states, "ethernet controller, unknown 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Buy a Compaq Deskpro EN with built in Intel PRO 100/VM
2. Install Redhat 7.0
3. Try to use the network

Actual Results:  bringing up interface eth0 failed

Expected Results:  bringing up interface eth0 should have succeeded
