red hat 3 Ent...network text config


HI,
with red hat I know how to change and save network config with the graphical interface, but in remote ssh access, I must tell the system to save the config and activate the eth0 on reboot. In which file must I do this?
Thanks
Luis

The network configuration is setup in the files below /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts
the file you will want to edit for eth0 is ifcfg-eth0
alternatively for simple comfigurations from a commandline you can use netconfig

ifcfg-eth0

Hi,
ok so the file is this :
DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=none
BROADCAST=217.13.255.255
IPADDR=217.13.120.166
NETMASK=255.255.0.0
NETWORK=217.13.0.0
ONBOOT=yes
TYPE=Ethernet
USERCTL=no
PEERDNS=yes
GATEWAY=217.13.120.129

I beleave the tag ONBOOT=yes is that the eth0 device is activated on boot?
Thanks a lot
Luis
