I just bought an HP a530n, AMD64 based processor. I installed Redhat 7.3 on it for EDA tools installation purpose. Unfortunately, since 7.3 is a rather old release (and I am using only Kernel 2.4.18-3), it does not support the Ethernet Card in this HP machine. The Ethernet Card is RealTek RTL8201L 10/100 Fast Ethernet. Thus everytime when the PC boots, I can see the faiure reported on eth0 device.

Does anyone know where can I download the driver for this card? Or do I have to dig in the antique store to find those 'old' ethernet card several years ago so that RH7.3 can support? Please help!!!

Why use RH7.3 now. You have a powerful 64-bit CPU!

I think it is better use Fedora Core 1. Many people have discussed how to install EDA tools on this platform.

Hi Treebear, could you please tell me where to download (or buy) Fedora Core1? I am a newbie in Linux OS and would appreciate if you can help me out. Also are you sure those major EDA tools can be supported by Fedora Core1 (i.e. IC50 & LDV41)?

No problem for the /I/C/5 and /L/D/V/4/1 on Fedora Core 1. I have tried them.
Also for the /S/y/n/0/p/s/y/s/ /s/y/n/t/h/e/s/i/s tools.
