Hi everyone! I have a PCI NIC: RealTek 8029. the
problem is this one: when i didnt put in my config
file the line:"device		ed0	at isa? disable port 0x280
irq 10 iomem 0xd8000" i couldnt use my NIC, and my NIC
is on PCI(and ed0 is for isa)...The dmesg.boot file in
this case is bad.boot(atached to this e-mail).When i
put that line, i can use the NIC. In both cases the
config files are the same(only that line is the
difference)(the config file is atached to this
e-mail:k).The dmesg.boot file in the case with that
line is last.boot(atached to this e-mail). The second
problem is why do i get those errors(at the begining
of last.boot). In the case of last.boot i get this
error(after root is logged in):dhclient: send-packet:
Adress family not supported by protocol family. Thank
you very much for reading this e-mail. And sorry for
my English.

sory but i cant atach more files and i will show the
the GENERIC dmesg.boot here: Copyright (c) 1992-2003
