i have attempted install of gentoo with the following 2 iso cd images,

gentoo-alpha-1.4-20040225.iso
gentoo-alpha-2004.0-20040313.iso
however both only have 2 network adapter modules to choose from. :?
of course the ones available are not what I have installed in the machine :x

the 2 network adapters are realtek 8139 and d-link-dfe550tx. I want to
set this machine up as firewall/router/dhcp server. Any ideas where I can
get an iso image for gentoo/alpha that has driver support for more than 2
cards ? Or perhaps pre-compiled modules that I can download and copy
to a floppy disk for modprobe...
Let me know if you need more specific info...
Thanks

iirc...

the kernel on the iso's just has most of the drivers built into the kernel (eepro100 for sure, probably others)

I just released a new experimental livecd which includes D-Link DL2000 support - I'm assuming this covers your DGE-550TX card.

The new livecd is called gentoo-alpha-2004.2-20040730.iso and you can find it in the experimental/alpha/livecd directory on the mirrors.

Please file any bugs you might find on http://bugs.gentoo.org so the next livecd can be even better :wink:
