Yesterday I installed Mandrake version 9.0 on the system and the loopback 
interface and the ethernet adapter work just fine. I have since re-installed RH 
8.0 to continue this matter. OT: I don't know what they do to their distro's 
file systems, but I sure liked the fact that I could VIEW and USE my NTFS 
partition in addition to ext3

Happens to me running RH 8 on a toshiba satellite 5205-S703.

Removing S05kudzu from /etc/rc.d/rc5.d/ solved this.

Why do we have to do this to even get the operating system up ?
Shame on you guys who put up beta quality software as releases. 
Comment 3 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 11:40:04 EDT
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
