Ethernet connection absent in CENTOS 3
i have to use a tool, which is dependent on RHEL3/4.So i thought that CENTOS 3 will suffice the requirement. I installed CentOS 3.9 yesterday on my machine which is Compaq presario SG35701L.It has ethernet adapter of ReaLtek RTL8139/810 Fastspeed, which works properly on my windows OS.But when i boot system in CentOS 3, then it fails to start any networking protocol, be it ssh, http, etc.When i checked the Network settings, i didn't find any eth0 or eth1.In the list of ethernet controllers, i couldn't find RealTek8139.Earlier, i have tried with CENTOS 5 also but it didn't work too and was giving the same problem.
Doesn't Centos distro come with inbuilt networking drivers??
please let me the right solution.
