Network problem In Redhat 9 in VMware


Hi, is there anybody that managed to install RedHat 9 in a Real Machine or VMware machine ? I couldn't start eth0 in VMWare and I'm afraid to upgrade My real machine with RH8

Thanks

To work around this problem, become root (su -) and use a text editor to edit the following files in the guest operating system:
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth[n]
/etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth[n]
In both cases, [n] is the number of the Ethernet adapter -- for example, eth0.

In each of the two files, add the following line:

MII_NOT_SUPPORTED=yes

Then run the command ifup eth[n] (where [n] is the number of the Ethernet adapter) or restart the guest operating system.
