ok, what'd I mess up
I installed redhat 7.0 on my workstation and got it up and running, then added the Xfree86, kde, and gnome modules from Redhat 7.1 (don't have a bootable 7.1 disc set yet) to get X running properly on my Nvidia video card. Everything was working until I ran into something that wanted the newer kernel. I updated the kernel (installed the 7.1 RPM's) but now eth0 will not initialize. I've tried booting to the older kernel but it doesn't bring up eth0.
Seems like a common problem related to updating to 7.1 from what I've seen on this board. if I try to ifup eth0 I get
Determining IP information for eth0 ...Operation Failed
