Hi I'm new to this forum & a new user of linux, :thumbsup:
I have set up a usb drive O/S with puppy, which works well, with one exception, i'm having problems geting it to find my Ethernet controller.
The controller is :NVIDIA nForce 10/100 Mbps
I have looked around other sites & seen a few problems with this set up, & to be honist got confused with some of the help thats been offered in the posts i'v found
I'v downloaded all the drivers from NVIDIA site & put on the same usb drive as my O/S in the hope it would hopfully automatacly be found & install but have found it wont.
i allso tried to install my drivers that came with the contraller (windows versions) via the onboard setup, with no joy

Welcome to BP!

I would like to see the output from a command. If you could open terminal, and then enter the command
This will tell us all of the hardware that is connected via a pci slot to your computer.

Then we can help you find the correct drivers.

The network controller isnt on a PCI it's intergrated into the motherboard

~basic specs of set up~
ECS GeForce 8100 8100VM-M5 motherboard
AMD Phenom 9500 X4 Quad Core
Onboard Nvidia Geforce 8100 graphics SLI
PCI-Express X16 Nvidia GeForce 9800 GT
Integrated 6-channel High Definition audio VIA Technologies, Inc.
8GB DDR2 800MHz memory

hope that helps, i will give the code a try, but i'm guessing you thought it was on a PCI
