Hi, what a wonderfull news!! But I have always the same problem with IOC3 ethernet card. The kernel included in this new live cd detect the mac address and all network parameters (full duplex, 100Mb), but...... network doesn't work: Rx led blinks but Tx doesn't. No bits are sent along the cable and after some hour I have a RX buffer overflow. May this output be usefull? livecd root # lspci -x -vv -s 00:02.0 0000:00:02.0 Class ff00: Silicon Graphics, Inc.
