Hi, I am new and just burned the DSL ISO image to a CD.
I want to use DSL on an old 486 PC with 32 MB, 3c900b and serial mouse.
Because my PC/BIOS does not support booting from CD, and have put smartbootmanager (http://btmgr.sourceforge.net) on a floppy. I boot from this floppy and then choose 'boot from CD'. This works fine.
Except that my ethernetcard 3c900b is not working.
During booting I get the following messages:
network device eth detected
and somewhat later on
configuring network interfaces... : failed
When I run 'netcardconfig' and choose DHCP (my ADSL router/switch supports DHCP) is doesn't get an IP address, but replies with "operation failed".
Who can help me?
