The error I report now ocurred both in CD an after HD Install.
After installing Knoppix in my ECS (PC-Chips) A929 desknote I got the following error in console:

NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth0: transmit timed out
eth0: Transmit timeout, status 00000004 00000240

The last number may be 241 also.
I can ping my IP but only my IP, the entire network is unaccessible.

I'll apreciate any help!

Thanks a lot!

You've set this up statically right? Are you sure about your network info? Try setting it up dynamically. As root run "netcardconfig". You may need to do "ifdown eth0" first.

Yes I did!
In netcardconfig, when I answer Yes to "Use DHCP broadcast?" I get those NETDEV WATCHDOG messages again, about 5 or 6 of then and finally an "operation failed" message.

Before the Netdevs I got an "Sending DHCP broadcast from device eth0eth0: Media Link On 10mbps half-duplex.

I'm conected to a 10mbps hub, but that is not the problem since I conect to the net using this under windows, isn't it?

Any other sugestions?

This *could* be your problem. I've got a motherboard with basicaly the same ethernet chip and it works right out of the box, with a 100mbit switch though.

btw, your lspci -v output says it uses IRQ 22, AFAIK that one doesn't exist. Mine is on IRQ 11 (like about al of my pci hardware).

What can I do about that?

Thanks!

Don't know. It could be that you have some kind of server board (in a laptop?). Those have more IRQs, but I doubt if they count till 22... It could be a problem with the kernel, it could be something else (typo?).

Sorry...

OK, lets consider it a kernel problem (i've been talking to some friends)..
How can I "Fix" it?

Nevermind,

Found my answer using noapic in lilo parameters.
Everything's working fine.
