Description of problem:
During a clean install, the installer failed to set up networking.
The system is a Pll-350, 256M RAM, ne2000 ISA network card.
I chose a workstation install from CD, in GUI mode.
On boot after the install, kudzu detected the ethernet device and configured
networking. Unless I overlooked it, there was no option to set a hostname.
As far as I can remember, this card was always detected and configured by the
installer. I haven't used this machine in some time, so it's possible I'm mistaken.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I did a server install, my card was detected at install and I was able to
configure it during install. It could be your card wasn't supported, was
loose in the attachement to the MB, or some other hardware issue. That or the
workstation install doesn't work right for that part, but I have seen no one
else have this problem.
ISA network cards are not detected during a CD install. It will only be seen
during the installation if you do a network-based installation using the card in
