Hi,
I think I have Award 6.0 BIOS with my A7N8X-E Deluxe mobo. Can you
"disable" the built-in LAN on this mobo via the BIOS ? Can you configure
the NIC card at all on this BIOS ? Thanks so much in advance.

Configure the Nic?

Yes you can turn them off.

What types of "Configuration" do you need?

I am having trouble getting Mandrake 9.2 OS to work with my mobo. The NIC
card is being recognized but I cannot configure it correctly for either a
direct connection to my cable modem or a connection to my D-Link router.
Any suggestions about the BIOS or otherwise ? Thanks again.

Is this possibly related to the VPD info missing in the 1GHz nic
equipped Asus boards? There is a patch available that allows the Linux
OS to recognize this NIC and work with it.
The patch is something "sk98lin".

Ok, will do. I'm struggling with a CD burner project right now.

Ok, another dumb newbie question: how do I insert the patch into the
kernel during installation ? I need a step by step explanation, being a
newbie. Thank you so much for your time.

very late update: after I jiggered the configuration program for a
while in MDK 9.2, it finally recognized my NIC card andn it worked
fine.
