I confess that I am not happy with my life and that I am a thief.

I can’t figure it out.. my Linux installs that is, Its the same hardware that I have been using since day one. I can install Debian with the default Kernel of 2.20… and yeah it all works fine and dandy, but the 2nd I go and install Kernel 2.4.18-k6 and reboot, all looks fine but the damn NIC stops functioning. NeverĀ had this issue before, after multiple installs it keeps doing the same thing, maybe somethingĀ is wrong with the NIC? or just maybe my parents should have gotten me one of these when I was a kid DNA Kit for Kids, it would have made me wiser I think. Prob. would have done more for me than a damn chemistry set… who the hell knows.
