From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.7 [en] (WinNT; I)
The hardware address on the network card is not being detected. From dmesg:
Linux Tulip driver version 0.9.13b (January 24, 2001)
eth0: Digital DS21140 Tulip rev 34 at 0xec80, 00:00:00:00:00:00, IRQ 11.
eth0: MII transceiver #0 config 1000 status 782d advertising 01e1.
ifconfig also shows an ethernet address of 00:00:00:00:00:00.
This was a stock RedHat 7.1beta wolverine build.
Steps to Reproduce:
This is fixed in the kernel currently in rawhide.
