SuSE 9.1 & forcedeth - Fail
I just installed a copy of SuSE 9.1, and for some reason in the boot I noticed that both eth0 and eth1 are failing to load. So basically I can't use SuSE 9.1 until I get the internet working. They are, however, Help would be much appreciated on this issue.

And as a warning, im not very familiar with the Linux distros, this is my first try at it... So I could be missing something extremely obvious.

Run the YaST program to configure networking.

To do it by hand, start with this:

lspci -v | less
and look for Ethernet controllers.

Then do:

find /lib/modules/ | grep net
looking for matching kernel modules. The modprobe <modulename> command will initialise the network device (if it exists) and ifconfig will bring the interface up.

The Unix help system is in man pages, eg:

man ifconfig
