ps: bios settings of the computer i allready make default. i disabled and enabled the internal network card on the mainbord, but both give the same errors on freesco that network cards are not found.
there is a cd-rom included with linux drivers [Linux-2.4.x & Linux-2.6.x]. Total contents of the linux driver directory: "O:\TG-3269\Drivers\Linux-2.4.x & Linux-2.6.x" = 70kb
maybe can upload the dir. contents somewhere...?.. :wink:

In your case there is a fundamental issue on this PC. In your BIOS you need to set it to "PnP OS = No" and I suspect there will be a lot fewer problems. The reason I know this is because regardless of a driver or not the /proc/pci will show everything that has an IRQ on the PCI bus and that is how I would have figured out the ID number of the network card and when the BIOS is set to PnP it does not give IRQ's to the devices.

With regards to the hard drive, load the ext2 package and see if it can be cfdisk'ed and formated as ext2. I suspect there is something else going on with the location of the drive and where the system is looking for it. However the "PnP OS = No" may also solve this issue. But I would still recommend formatting it as ext2 as there are a lot of other advantages.
If you are afraid that you might make a mistake. The chances are high that you will never learn anything.
