    [ubuntu] Re: Latest kernal hang

    That sounds more like a grub problem to me, but I could be wrong.

    Throw in your install cd, and boot up in rescue mode. This will land you at a root shell. Run "uname -r" and record your kernel...

    I'm not 100% sure, but I think it uses the common Realtek RTL8139 chipset. If you provide the hardware id(ven and dev), the proper driver would be very easy to locate for you.
