You seem to be having the same exact symptoms that I had with my
EtherLink XL PCI card. Nobody else seemed to get the same check cable
error as you and I have.
Basically, they killed the card's functionality between RH9 and Severn1.
Now it seems that either stopping kudzu from loading on startup,
disabling the network graphical boot loader and other tricks.
I took out the card and substituted a later version 3com card in to
shuffle around the problem.
I am getting ready to put the card in my machine again and try it out
with the 2.6 kernel. Someone mentioned that it was a 2.4 kernel with
nptl support problem. I'm rather curious.
BTW - If you run dhclient from a root terminal, you should get an IP
address. It allowed me to run KDE and most applications.
Mozilla, GNOME and a few other applications were killed though.
The goal of science is to build better mousetraps. The goal of nature
is to build better mice.
