Description of problem:

I installed RH 8 on my laptop.  Have an Intel Pro 100 Cardbus II in the PCMCIA 
slot.  Had the card in during the installation process.  I am getting there 

eth0 has an alisas to module eepro100

When I go into the network adapters section, and at start up.  The 
modules.config looks like:

alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
alias eth0 eepro100
alias sound-slot-0 ymfpci
post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 
2>&1 || :
pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1 
|| :
alias usb-controller usb-uhci
alias ieee1394-controller ohci1394

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.start up
2.going into the network adapters gui

Actual Results:  It does work, I just don't know why it is referencing 1 driver 
over the other.

Expected Results:  No error messages

Does the e100 driver work for you?
Comment 2 Scott Feldman 2004-03-03 23:09:45 EST
Stephen, change you're /etc/modules.conf alias from eepro100 to e100 
and get the latest e100 driver from http://sf.net/projects/e1000.  
Try e100-3.0.15.  I've tested this with the Cardbus II nics, and it 
works fine.  I think eepro100 is going to have a hard time with this
