This should really be fixed.
Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-08-27 21:49:48 EDT
USB nics are currently broken in the kernel, which makes it somewhat hard to add...

Comment 4 Michel Alexandre Salim 2002-03-24 18:05:13 EST
USB network devices still not selectable. Since the USB network devices themselves work 
fine with Skipjack's stock kernel, please consider fixing this. Right now RCN seems a bit 
broken after I added an arbitrary network card then manually change the entry in 
/etc/modules.conf to 'alias eth0 kaweth'.
Comment 5 Harald Hoyer 2002-04-03 05:03:53 EST
should work in redhat-config-network-0.9.21-1
Comment 6 Jay Turner 2002-04-18 14:43:16 EDT
Tested with 1.0.0-1 and things are looking pretty good.  The Netgear EA101
worked quite well.
