Did you use a recent daily CD, or the preview CD?

I _think_ this device uses the sk98lin driver.  Run "sudo modprobe sk98lin"
from a command prompt, and then try adding the interface in Computer->System
Configuration->Networking.  If that works (or, if possible, even if it
doesn't), please run the command "lspci" and email the output to me so that
this device can be autodetected in the future.

Open a terminal and run the following command:

sudo sed -i 's/UTC=yes/UTC=no/' /etc/default/rcS

(enter your password when prompted)

That should fix this on the next reboot.  This is a bit arcane, but we are
working on a way to automatically determine this setting based on whether
you are dual booting or not
