    Use the redhat network tool in RH9 ('redhat-config-network') to configure the network interfaces, turn them both onto DHCP, plug the one you want as your external interface into your cable modem, reboot (or restart your networking layer with 'service network restart'), and see which one is given an IP address. You can configure your way out from there.

    Not getting IP from Cable Modem

    BINGO!!! That was it. Though, I don't think it's locked, since I can get the IP on my Windows XP system, but with Red Hat it doesn't like. I borrowed my mate's Little Blue Router and presto, it gets an IP!

    Well, thanks to all who replied with suggestions!

    Now, I'm installing IP Cop with the 2 NICs. Wonder if it'll like the cable modem......

    Cheers!
