Hey all,

I've posted this somewhere before, so you mods out there are welcome to delete this when i get an answer!

When i boot up, i get this message

* Bringing up eth0 via DHCP... [!!]
* ERROR: "netmount" not started

Or something similar. Now i had this before (on my other box) and i fixed it by adding b44 to /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6 so i did this again but it is still failing.

ifconfig does not show eth0 either.
Any help greatly appreciated!!!

what tells ifconfig -a ? (-a : all)

and, is your b44 module loaded ? (see lsmod)

Yes b44 is loaded, as is mii. I can get a connection on my livecd, and noticed that b44 isn't loaded here, mii is, and so is via_rhine. I'll autoload via_rhine and see.
