Description Gene Czarcinski 1999-10-23 19:43:06 UTC
This is probably a dup of 5521 et al but that bug
description is specific for another network card.

I have a 3c905B network card.  If I use regular text or
graphical install, the network setup frame occurs and the
network is set up.

If I use expert mode (e.g., to install from harddisk rather
than a cdrom), there is NO network setup frame and the
network does not setup.

The system "name" setup frame occurs in all cases.

This was tested with the distributed boot.img/anaconda as
well as the boot-RHEA-1999:044 both with and without the
updates-RHEA-1999:045 images.

When you run expert mode installs, no hardware probing occurs,
therefore in the screen asking whether you would like to add special
device drivers, you have to respond that you would, and then tell the
installer to load the module for the hardware you have (in this case,
you would tell the installer that you have a 3x905B NIC)  Reopen this
bug is this does not solve your problem.
