I need to run the pre-paleolithic (10 years old!) SuSE 7.3 under VirtualBox. (Don't ask. I just do, ok?) I managed to successfully install it. It boots. It recognized the virtual NIC (pcnet32 module) and I can see it has the correct virtual MAC VirtualBox gave it. But it can't communicate with the outside world. No packets pass through.
I want to try compiling the latest 2.4.x kernel on it, but kernel.org is down. Where else can I download this old kernel?
Also, I'm open to out-of-the box suggestions to get network connectivity to this OS.
