Cat 4006 and 3Com NIC

I Have a bit of a problem.

I have a workstation with windows / linux, that PCs are conected to a cat4006 with the latest image file. The switch i configured with portfast.

When I boot the linux I can not get a ip from the dhcp server, in windows no problem. If i put this pc on a 3550 or 2950 switch no problem.

if i take my laptop with linux and intell card no problem

any idee. why

Re: Cat 4006 and 3Com NIC

i know it's obvious, but have you hard-set the speed and duplex ?

I have seen some end systems (predominantly win95) try to kick of certain IP processes such as DHCP before auto negotiation is complete ?
