    First, RH6.2 is so far out of date you should really think about upgrading to a newer version.
    There is Fedora Core which is the testbed for RH. It is usually on the bleeding edge of everything.
    Then there is CentOS. This is the RH SRPM's recompiled so you are getting the RH software without the tax.

    To answer your question since I don't know what desktop, if any, I think it would be the easiest to run the command from the CLI

    system -config-network

    Cannot remeber if these commands were available in that version though.

    Look into the ifconfig and hostname commands. To be frank with you, I think its just best to ditch Red Hat 6.2. Its so outdated (released almost 10 years ago) and just use a distribution that is still being actively developed and maintained e.g. Fedora, RHEL and CentOS.
