Default e100 error

Hi, everyone,
I have one older IBM system running F11. I am trying to upgrade the
video card. I bought a PNY version NVIDIA GE Force 5200 PCI board to
use.

When I plug it in and connect the video, the system boots and goes
through the full F11 bar display, the screen goes blank and after a few
seconds I get an error message:
e100:eth0 NIC Link is up 100Mbps full duplex
ADDRCONF (NETDEV_CHANGE):eth0: link becomes ready

which flashes for a few more seconds, then becomes stable with an
underscore cursor beneath it.

when I attempted to Google it, All I found were references to F12
(which this machine refuses to run anyway, I'm hoping for F13 to fix
that). It appears though that hitting return when you see this message
in F12 will let the machine proceed. Not so, when I hit return, the
cursor moves down one line but nothing further happens.

The changes recommended have to do with setting some options in some of
the bootscripts.
Here is one thread discussing the issue:
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11998

However, this doesn't seem to fit. The only thing changing in my
system is the adding of the PCI based video card. How can that affect
the hardware setup of the NIC card? Moreover, why is the renaming
taking place at all to begin with? Mac addresses are supposed to be
unique. Is there a manufacturer or subset of manufacturers who are not
following the rules, or have the number of cards exceeded the number of
available addresses? But these questions detract from my base
question::
How do I get my system to work properly with the new card? The reason
I am doing this is to eliminate video streaking on the subject computer
which occurs with the built in intel chipset.

Regards,
Les H

If the PCI busses share an IRQ, things can get pernickity. Try a
different slot, or re-arranging the order of cards in slots.

I used to strike that kind of thing all the time. Though in more recent
years, with all-on-the-motherboard peripherals, I haven't had to put in
several cards, any more.

There have been cards known to have duplicate MACs, though I don't
recall who and how far spread it was. And I didn't see your message
mentioning how the MAC changed.

Hmm, hardware fault, or software driving problem? A hardware fault
could be having several effects, only some of which would be immediately
obvious.
