Hi,

I'm trying to install Linux on a Toshiba Tecra 8000. The problem is the PCMCIA ethernet card with a Realtek chipset (module: 8139too), which is recognized but the network is unusable. I always get an SIOCSFFLAGS-error and the interrupt assigned is 0, which means it failed. I read a lot of times that I should turn off plug and play, but there is no option when I boot with a floppy and run TSETUP.EXE. Is there any alternative to do this? Do you have any other hints?

Thanks, Thomas

Hi,

perhaps the following site will help you to solve the problem.

These are 2 official Toshiba linux sites and there are also some tips.

PS: You could also enter the BIOS if you will press the ESC key immediately after turning the NB on!
