    Default Intel 82566DM Ethernet issue

    I'm not really a newbie, I've been using Auditor and Backtrack2 for a while. I just got a new PC, an HP DC7800 that has an Intel 82566DM Gigabit Ethernet card in it. BT2 refused to see the card (ifconfig -a returned only lo) so I downloaded BT3 and burned a CD but the results are the same.

    I can find drivers on the Intel website for Linux, but I need some help in merging them with the .iso image (if that's even possible) or enabling them in some other way.

    I'm not real expert in Linux but I can follow directions fairly well :-)

    I've got the same problem with my HP dc7800p. The 82566DM-2 shows up on the PCI scan as an ethernet controller, but no eth0 to be found.

    Can you give me a link to the drivers please. I'd like to give configuring it a bash here and maybe between us we can figure it out :-)

    I also found that I had to do acpi=off to get the thing to boot without blackscreening.

    Smile Got it working!

    Get e1000e-0.4.1.7.tar.gz from intel.com's download center.
    unpack it move to the src dir and do the following:

    make install
    modprobe e1000e
    dhclient

    .. and you should be up and running :-)

    No kernel development package to do that...

    Sorry. A step missing in the above post:

    put kernel.lzm in the /BT3/modules/ folder
