Ok, well I have read ever piece of documentation you have available with
is very little. I used eth0 and it gives me the same thing Unknow

I did this back in v7r2 and it worked great except that dhcp did not work.
Trying now with v8r2 and it seems completley screwed up. I must be
missing something.

If there is documentation regarding the network config please point it out
to me cause for the life of me I can not find it.

I swear I am begining to this this thinkpad 510Cs is possesed. I have
tried 10 linux distrobutions and even freedos and something always seems
to not work.

what fun.
