Subject: [vox-tech] HELP!! with lilo.conf

I have a network set up (one other machine) and have now decided to go
to cable for Internet access (phone service here is painfully slow, and
won't be going to DSL within the next decade).  I installed another card
(rtl8139), which the BIOS recognises, but the kernel does not.

The Ethernet and Boot HOW-TOs both prescribe including the following in
lilo.conf, to force the kernel to search for the second card:




When I do this, and run lilo, it tells me I have a syntax error (in both
cases), and will not process anything past the offending entry.

What am I doing wrong, and what do I do to correct it, please?

Just for the record, ifconfig eth1 gets a "device cannot be found"
