I have a slight problem with my NIC. It's an onboard NIC (RTL8100) stuck on an Abit BD7II-RAID motherboard. When I try to install Gentoo (or run Knoppix for that matter), the NIC is detected and the system tries to get an IP through DHCP. The problem is the NIC won't light up. When I run ifconfig, eth0 isn't listen, only lo. If I run net-setup (on the Gentoo cd) eth0 turns up, but without and IP and with zeroed stats. Still no lights. If I check the modules, the rtl8139too driver is loaded as it should be (it's the right one, right?), so apparently it did detect the card. I know the NIC is ok, the current Windows XP installation uses it and has been for two years. Any ideas? I'm no Linux expert of any sort, so I'm not at all sure what to do next.
