Help Network Adapter Error 0x800000
Hey I have recently installed a "netgear fa311" network card on RH LINUX 8.0 using the "natsemi dp83815 fast ethernet" driver every thing appears to work ok but when I shut down/start up the computer my screen gets filled several times over with the message: "eth0: pci error 0x800000" I have searched google and I have found plenty of people with a similar problem but with no answer
if anyone here can help I would highly appreciate it

Ok, I think what you need to do, is ftp to this site
Grab the file that says netdrives-3.5.tgz
Once its dowloaded, go inot th folder where it is and type this.
tar xzf netdrivers-3.5.tgz.
It should untar it into a new folder, so go into that folder where the new files are now and type this.
Hope fully that will get it. I'm not really good a linux so that might be wrong. If that doesn't work just post back here again, and someone who knows it better than me can help you out.
