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.

are u using dhcp or static addresses for ur set up. Have u tried going to rh main menu and system tools > network device control to add ur ip addy and dns etc (if u r statically assigning) your first thing is to get to ping your router from your rh machine. what is ur router addy?
or if it`s not a wifi card as has been asked lets start basic....u have a network card that u r plugged in to... what type of card is it? is the green light lit at the back.
try putting the command lspci in your terminal window to see what hardware pci devices u have
Looks like your local loopback is the only interface that shows up in ifconfig (did you post the complete output?). You appear to have a SMC2-1211TX ethernet card. I've used cards with similar chips and they've all worked without a hitch. You probably just need to modprobe the appropriate driver to get the card set up. A google on Linux + the chip should help you. Did you enable networking when you installed Linux? What distro are you using?
Yeah, i posted everything that was returned from ifconfig.
From what i know, i have not enabled networking.... and i have red hat 9.
Anything leading me towards a basic tutorial or some type of breakdown on how i can go about fixing this problem would be great, because i know absolutely nothing about linux. Any thing else you need to know i will gladly share.
