can't activate network interface
i did a fresh install of RH9
and I can't get ip address fro DHCP server. I checked the cable and port on the switch, and RH45 port on the wall, they all fine.
when i issue service network restart it says determining IP information for eth0 failed.

and activating eth0 at network device control also failed.

what is wrong? I even manually add an IP to it still has no impact.

any ideas?

are you able to specify a static ip?
If not then the card is problem; either drivers or harware failure

yes i can specify a static IP

i reinstalled the driver, add an ip address to it.
ifconfig shows:
eth0 linkecap:ethernet hwaddr xxxxxxxxxxxx
inet addr: bcast: mask:
route shows: * U 0 0 0 eth0 * U 0 0 0 eth0 * U 0 0 0 lo

destination unreachable

i double checked the cable and verified the cable is fine.

just checking but

# redhat-config-network

is everything set to dhcp and are you allowind dns to resolve ips?

# redhat-config-securitylevel

eth0 should be a trusted device...
