Default Re: SuSE 9.1 & forcedeth - Fail

Run the YaST program to configure networking.

To do it by hand, start with this:
Code:
lspci -v | less
and look for Ethernet controllers.

Then do:
Code:
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:
Code:
man ifconfig
