Evidently the tulip and dmfe modules togehter have a conflict with my
network card. I'm hoping this can be solved after an install by
blacklisting the tulip module.
Weird. Users should never have to blacklist modules nor even know what a
LKM is. So this should probably get filed in Bugzilla at
and if you can paste the bug number here I'll follow up with one of our
kernel dudes, thanks! Basically, if you have a driver that works the
live cd should automatically connect to wired network using DHCP.
Likewise, if your wireless chipset is supported and you have the
firmware etc. connecting to a wireless network (either cleartext, WEP,
WPA, etc.) via DHCP should be as easy as selecting it from a drop-down
So, in 99% of all cases, non-working network connectivity is most likely
either a kernel/driver bug or simply missing firmware / drivers.
