I am just installing Scyld v29 on the test cluster I am building. Currently,
I have only the master node (Asus PC-DL Deluxe dual Xeon motherboard) with
an extra LinkSys 10/100 ethernet card for off-cluster networking. Everything
installed fine, but when I boot, it does not seem to activate the onboard
Intel 82547EI Gigabit LAN controller.

The Network Configuration application detects it as a 8254OEM Gigabit
Ethernet Controller (LOM), with a status of 'ok' at eth1, but when I try to
activate it, it says:

Cannot activate network device eth1!

tulip device eth1 does not seem to be present, delaying intialization

It gives the same message on bootup, but it never does activate.

Can someone give me some test to try?

I have the network adapter plugget into a 10/100 switch (not managed) and
the static IP address is set to
