Issue Description
After use SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 SP2 CD to install, can't find network adapter.
Alarm Information
Handling Process
Install network adapter drive in Linux, need compiling and installation two steps. Network adapter drive compile need to rely on the kernel source code and GCC compiler; Because considering the System efficiency, when install SIG Server Linux, need to use basic installation method(i.e. only choose "Server Base System" and "File Server" these two System components), this way do not install the kernel source code and GCC compiler, the kernel source and compiler installation steps is as following, using 64 bit SUSE Linux as a example: 
A, install kernel source code:
1, mounting cd-rom. Insert SUSE 10 CD, input mount/dev/sr0 / cdrom, mounting drive to /cdrom directory;
2, install kernel source code. Input the following command cd mnt\suse\x86_64 into source code directory, execute RPM - ivh kernel - source - X86_64 and complete installation;
B install GCC compiler:
1, input yast command, start yast graphic interface,
2, enter the "Software" - > "Software Management", in the Software Management interface, press shortcuts "Alt S" pop-up Software search interface, input keyword "GCC", can search all the GCC Software, and install;
3, download SuSE 10 SP2 operating system network adapter drive of the corresponding server type on the corresponding server vendors website, and read the readme instructions at the network adapter drive carefully, this file illustrate the Linux installation steps; Note: the compilation installation method of different network adapter drive has a slightly difference, please strictly according to the instructions to operate;
Root Cause
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 SP2 CD without corresponding network adapter model drive, need to manually install network adapter drive.
If problems appeared in the server network adapter installation process, can still directly call the corresponding server manufacturer hotline for help, now the support of HP, Dell, Lenovo and so on server manufacturers is well.
