Installed Debian woody release 2 recently. used kernel version 2.4.18
during installation by selecting bf2.4 at prompt.
Have an Intel pro 100 VE ethernet card, which is not supported by default.
downloaded the driver from Intel site and compiled it.
I had not installed the kernel source. When I searched, I found
kernel-source-2.4.18 and installed the source.
When I try to install the compiled driver using insmod it says version
mismatch: driver compiled for version 2.4.18 and ur current kernel version
If I do a forced insmod, it works with warning, but it looks like I have to
do it every time I reboot.
I can ping intranet addresses, but not internet addresses.
The other thing is that /etc/modules.conf does not have an alias to eth0.
If I try /sbin/ifup eth0, I get the error message : unknown interface
modprobe gives version mismatch error.
