Hi,

I'm not sure what you mean by availability (because you mention a screw driver).

- If your computer has a (Ethernet) port which you can plug a network cable into, then you have a network card present.
- If you want to know if the network card is picked up and/or activated by RH 5.2 use one of the following commands:
Code:
lspci | grep -i eth
dmesg | grep -i eth
ifconfig
Hope this helps.

Is that Enterprise RH 5.2 or the original rh 5.2 pre-fedora? Redhat.com has an excellent search engine on their site for researching issues. E RH 5.2 should have tech support.
