Hi, I am having exactly the same problem, have successfully installed 10.4.8 from the JAS disc, have the Foredeth drivers installed but I just cant get the onboard NIC on my M2N4 to work.


I also have an old Compaq (intel based) PCI NIC installed but this doesnt seem to be detected at all.


Does anyone have any ideas?
