Hi,

We're having some serious problems trying to get the Intel Gig. Ethernet

Adapter in the 2850 to come up in a RHEL 3.3 install. The same adapter 
and what must have been an earlier revision of the e1000 driver worked 
under a 3.0 install but we have not yet been successful in getting it up

under 3.3.
Since the OS and machine are, I hope, common, I'm hoping this is a known

problem.
We had some success doing a guided install (? I'm not sure of the 
correct term) using the Dell cd's that ship with the 2850. 3.3 installed

and the Adapter worked, however we were unable to to custom partitioning

or package selection so such an install would not be suitable for our
needs.

Some error messages:

/lib/modules/2.4.21-4.ELsmp/kernel/drivers/net/e1000/e1000.o: 
init_module: No
such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters,
including
invalid IO or IRQ parameters

All assistance is welcomed as I've been tearing my hair out for the last

two days.
