    Can you check a couple of things? It would help if you gave the output of the following commands (run them as root):
    ifconfig -a
    ls /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts
    cat /etc/modules.conf

    I executed the commands you gave me and this is the output...

    I see. Your network card is working properly, it's just the actual internet connection that doesn't work. What kind of connection do you have (DHCP, PPPoE...?)?

    My IP is assigned dynamically through DHCP if thats what you mean...

    then it could be as simple as running (as root):
    dhcpcd eth0

    I'll boot to Fedora and try...

    The dhcpd command lies in:

    Unless you logon as root or 'su -' you'll have to specuify that whole path manually (since the sbin folers aren't included in non-super users path)

    I'd recomend that you run this command:
    sudo /usr/sbin/dhcpd eth0
    (you'll be promted for root password)

    allready logged in as root


    I was allready logged in as root:
    [root@localhost sbin]dhcpd eth0
    bash: dhcpd: command not found
    Do I miss some package or something.. I really need this done so i can really get going with my linux (school).
