I read the note on RH in the howto... "your driver" was installed "last" so the hook between linuxconfig and the normal linux stuff is broken... which is fine with me...

nothing abnormal in the boot log... just a couple of complaints about not being yp_bind'd... no surpize there since it cant find the nis server at this point.

ifconfig says

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:10:A4:E0:2B:87 inet addr: Bcast: Mask: UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:27 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:31 errors:2 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:2 collisions:0 txqueuelen:100 Interrupt:11 Base address:0x200

which seems fine to me.

ping says

[root@lysbd-laptop log]# ping PING ( from : 56(84) bytes of data. From ( Destination Host Unreachable From (

I did a route but did not get its o/put captured (i am having to write this in win95)... but it listed which I am not sure is correct. when I run netconfig() I give it as a "gateway"... but since my ip 219 box is on the same side of the gateway as is the ip 6 box, this shouldnt matter... should it?
