Bizzare! Network card is recognized but Not activated on F8


tux noob with 1 unfinished install under my belt so please tread gently.

Got f8 installed on my laptop (compaq presario v3000) installed like a breeze.

LAN card is recognized but trying to activate the connection with system-administration-network only results in "eepro100 device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying the initialization"

Tried to do an lspci but that returned bash: lspci: command not found

Tried to do the same thing under su with the same result.

In the absence of a network card, screenshots are my best bet which I have attached.

If someone can help me out, I would be grateful.

Hello, and welcome to the forum-

I'm not sure how to solve your eth0 situation, but the "command not found" issue goes like this.
Many commands are in directories (those "sbin" ones) that only root has a PATH configured to.
When you use "su" to change to root, you become root but you do not inherit roots envornmnet
variables, so you do not gain roots full path access. To change to full root configuration, use "su -"
(that's su followed by a space and then a hyphen).

Otherwise, you can just specify the full path to the command: /sbin/lspci
You can use the 'which' commnd to locate where a command resides: which lspci
