Installing Linksys Network Card

By teo ·
During installation of linux, at the install network card screen, I read the linksys documentation that there should be a driver tulip from the list, I cannot find it. How should I install tulip ? Is it possible to provide step by step guide ? Thankyou

Installing Linksys Network Card

I went round and round on this issue with a Linksys PCMCIA card on my Thinkpad.
(RedHat 5.x and 6.x)I tried so many configurations, I cannot give a definative answer to your question.
What I can suggest, is to go out and purchase a cheap $18.00 NE2000 NIC, throw it in and it will probably get auto-detected, not even ask for drivers, and perform wonderfully. In any event, there is a section on toubleshooting the tulip load process supplied by LinkSys at the following URL

<P>If the tulip driver is not available in your distribution by default then you will need to recompile the kernel to enable support for it. Don't worry, it's not as hard as it sounds.</P>

First let's start by whats the driver require
for your network card. Go and read the
Ethernet-HOWTO and find the driver needed for
your network card.
Then login as root, go to X-window. Open a
terminal window. Go to the directory where
your Linux source is(mine is /usr/src/linuc)
type "make xconfig" Pick network card. Find
the driver you need, put in kernal enable(Y
not M) Save and exit. Type "make bzImage"
after that "make bzlilo"
reboot, you should see your bootup screen
detect your network card as eth0. Good luck~
