In my dual-boot system, (Fedora 2.6.10-1.766_FC3 / WinXP) problems
occur when rebooting in both OS. Neither Fedora, neither Windows
recognizes the ethernet card (3Com 3C900B-TPO Ethernet Adaptor Generic).
In Windows the problem can be solved by having the card
detected-activated manually after reboot, Fedora however shows the
message 'Initialising eth 0 failed', both during booth process as
after manual activation trial.
Most of the time, but not always, the problem is solved after shutting
down the PC completely and startup from the beginning.
Please be patient with me if I ask a stupid question since I'm new to
Thanks in advance.
