Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have been fighting with this for almost a whole week.
I currently have 1 NE2000 NIC install on eth0 i/o 0x300 irq 5 and using the ne.o driver this works fine.
I added a 2nd NIC ( DE-220P ISA- this is listed on RH compatiablity list for hardware) and tring to make it eth1. The i/o setting in the kernel is 320 and irq 12. In the Kernel setting I'm using the ne.o driver, RH suggested using this. When i boot up I get the message Delay eth1 Initialization. I get the same message when doing the command : ifup eth1
When I check the /var/log/boot.log on eth1 it has:
ifdown:eth1 unknown interface: No suce deveice
ifdown:eth1 error fetching interface inforamtion: Device not found
network: Shutting down interface eth1 succeeded
I added the DE-220P to the kernel via the control-panel, netconf and the module.conf. However, when I either do a ifconfig -a or dmesg the NIC don't show up.
:::::what I tried so far::::::
I changed the settings on the DE-220P to match that of eth0 and removed the NE2000 from the computer and ran it as a stand alone card and it worked just fine. I was able to ping the other computers on the network. I change everything back to their original settings. The problem still present.
I also tried differnet I/O anddress and IRQ but stilled failed.
I also tried adding the line append="ether=0,0,eth0 ether=0,0,eth1" in the lilo.conf, both with 0s and with address and still getting the same message Delay eth1 Initialization.
I checked /proc/interrupts and ioports for any conflicts and there is no conflict with either the IRQ or I/O address.
I'm currently running RH 7.0 on a AMD K5 w/32 megs RAM and 4gig HD with S3 virgo PCI video card serial mouse.
I had RH 6.1 and upgraded to RH 7.0 hoping this would resolve this issue but is did not. I did a clean install.
