Hi all,

I have a newly installed Intel Box with a 'Digital DS21142 Tulip' NIC.
As per the redhat site, this is supported.
But the network doesnt come up although the card is detected fine.
I even tried giving the IO address explicitly (taken from /proc/pci); no

Have anybody else used the same card?
Is the problem specific to 6.0 and does it work in other versions?
We had a crash here and are installing a new server, and we have this

I heard that 6.0 is buggy.
And that 6.1 too.
Pls share your experiences.

My experience was very good with 5.1/5.2 and have around a dozen stable
servers running. So, would like feedback on newer versions before moving
