Hi,

Actually, card is working fine. The below problem occurs only
when my machine is configured a client for DHCP (with DHCP
server as a WinNT 4.0 machine). When it is in DHCP, I get lot of
error messages in /var/log/messages that module 'lo' and 'eth0' are
not found. Any idea how to complile the kernel with DHCP enabled?
A brief log of the error messages attached.

Regards,
Biju.
