Hello All,

Here is my experience with test1 so far. I apologize if there is too 
MUCH detail, but I've never really installed a test version before so 
I'm trying to be helpful.

Using the 4 CD's, i386 on a Toshiba Satellite 1755 laptop

On boot
- Skipped mediacheck (in case anyone is curious, I have read of problems)

Anaconda (only minor things)
- Some icons did not appear until the mouse moved over them, at which 
point they became visible. If I recall correctly, this was either on the 
Choose Language or Choose Keyboard Layout screen, or both
- After the last package begins to install (this was at-spi), I was 
prompted to change from CD#4 back to CD#2, which was already installed?
- During the "Post-Install Configuration", after the progress bar 
reached the halfway point, there was about a 2-3 minute pause with no 
hard disc activity before continuing
- The final screen where you are told "Congratulations & Reboot", the 
text being presented spills off the side of the screen
-After clicking reboot, a screen full of GTK deprecation warnings 
appears on the console before any TERM signals are sent.

Once the reboot is done, upon booting into FC, the graphical boot screen 
tells me "Failed to bring up eth0"
- my /etc/resolv.conf, /etc/sysconfig/network and 
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 all look okay
- For the first time, during install I chose to "Enable firewall", but 
I'm not sure how to disable it, or if that should have any effect
- Tried the following (Note: I have a Compaq PCMCIA ethernet adapter. 
Worked fine in FC3.)

 > cd /etc/init.d
 > ./pcmcia restart
Starting PCMCIA services: cardmgr[2907]: watching 2 sockets
 > ./network start
Bringing up loopback interface [OK]
Bring up interface eth0             [FAILED]

I haven't been able to do anything else (such as test the other patches 
in devel tree) since I can't yum

Any ideas how to fix my ethernet?

Thank you,
