    what kind of ethernet card do you use(chipset??).all new kernels like 2.6.XX and above support a wide variety of chipsets.
    so if it not recognised check first if you have loaded the right module in kernel going to /usr/src/linux and typing in a terminal make menuconfig or make xconfig..after the check if you found your module there and selected it recompile the kernel in order to make your nic to work...

    An easy way to determine what card youre using is:

    $ lspci | grep Ethernet

    Also what does /etc/init.d/network start (if you dont have a init script network there you may have eth0 or net.eth0, 1, whatever) return?

    Hello Everyone

    I am also getting the same problem with the ethernet interface.

    I then inserted eepro100 but got
    not allocationd device_blk for non ethernet eth0.
    Please help me out.
    Bye Rohit

    Problem istalling on my Laptop

    Hi friends

    I am trying to install RedHat Enterprise and RedHat 9. Its a Compaq Presario V3030 with 100gb harddrive.

    It is showing there is no harddrive found.
    I think the hard disk driver is not supported in Linux.

    It had earlier a licensed version of windows Xp.

    Please guide me how to do that.

    Well some first options would be:

    lspci - this will show what is connected to your computers PCI slots, if you do not see anything saying ethernet it will most likely be a hardware issue.

    lsmod - if the card shows in lspci then use this command to check if the module is loaded

    /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 - this script holds all the info assigned to the card, make sure this is right, it will either have dynamic or static info.

    ifup - this will only work if everything is working right, but worth a try

    these are some of the most ovious all others you need use google to find the answer, cause google knows all!!!
