    Mandrake & cablemodem problem

    I have just installed Mandrake 9.1 but can't get the CM working.

    I have 2 NIC's, I think eth1 is the one connected to my CM, cos in winXP its
    LAC 2, the other is not being used.

    The NICs are Realtek RTL8139 PCI Fast Ethernet.

    ifcfg eth0

    Device=eth0
    BOOTPROTO=dhcp
    NETMASK=255.255.255.0
    ONBOOT=yes
    NEEDHOSTNAME=yes

    ifcfg eth1

    Device=eth0
    BOOTPROTO=dhcp
    NETMASK=255.255.255.0
    ONBOOT=yes
    MII_NOT_SUPPORTED=yes
    NEEDHOSTNAME=yes

    ifcfg-lo

    Device=lo
    IPADDR=127.0.0.1
    NETMASK=255.0.0.0
    NETWORK=127.0.0.0
    BROADCAST=127.255.255.255
    ONBOOT=yes
    NAME=loopback

    Any help appreciated.

    okay - one goes to a local network and the other to the cable modem?

    it looks to me like both are eth0..

    can you please post the output of /sbin/ifconfig - do omit your hardware addresses though.

    Re:Mandrake & cablemodem problem

    I took my unused NIC out and still no joy.

    SOLUTION

    I removed Mandrake and installed Redhat 9 and success.
    I have internet access, my USB MS mouse works and so does my Epson printer -
    all of which refused to work in Mandrake .
