    Hey guys,

    I bough an Abit AB9 motherboard to run a copy of linux on. The problem is I believe I need to install the drivers for both of the Gigabit Ethernet Controllers. I've looked one and I guessI need the "r1000" drivers. I need the driver for the "Realtek 8111B" network controller. So I looked up the rpm on dag.

    (I also found the driver from abit at)http://www.abit-usa.com/downloads/d...bcategory=1002&model=323&product_name=AB9+Pro

    Anyway, I'm stuck now. I dont' know what to do or how to install it. I tried the "source" rpm (not the noarch because when I tried it there was a "dependency" issue or something)

    Can anybody offer any help?

    Which distribution do you use? Do you have a working network connection on that system now?
