Hi, friends...
Where can I find the tulip driver -if possible version 1.1.15 (feb.27.2007)
(or how can I find and run the tulip.o file)?
Thanks for any answer....

The Tulip driver is already in DSL in the directory "/lib/modules/2.4.31/kernel/drivers/net/tulip". It should be loaded automatically. Are you having trouble with your network card?

Modules may be loaded at the terminal using the "modprobe" command.

eth0---intel DS21145 tulip
I tried "modprobe tulip" but when I try to start, it doesn`t work..........................
dsl@box:~$ sudo su
[/home/dsl]# modprobe tulip
[/home/dsl]#
.............
[/home/dsl]# ifconfig eth0 up
[/home/dsl]# ifconfig

It looks like the drivers have loaded for your card (otherwise eth0 wouldn't be listed by ifconfig), they just aren't connecting to the net.

You can use the "pump" command to set up the network connection automatically using DHCP. I assume you are connecting to a router, in which case are you sure it can accept connections from new PCs and has DHCP enabled?
