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 think your NIC is sit0, go to system-> administration -> network, enter the root password, and configure it. One more thing try ethtool -i sit0. I am a little bit confused about sit0 because I can't see physical address of it !!
I think that sit0 is appearing bcoz, using the "neat" command ?I had chosen some random intel ether express driver(gigabit). But when i hit the activate button, It says "delay in initialization of eth0"
i think you need to install the driver for your ethernet controller. I guess when you installed the fedora 8 you didn't checked the module for your ethernet controller. you can do one thing, do you have an extra NIC, if yes, attach it to the motherboard and then boot. Also tell me your motherboard name and the number written on the bar code strip.
Actually i am using a PXI based system from M/s NI: http://sine.ni.com/nips/cds/view/p/lang/en/nid/206809. I did not get any option for ethernet controller during installation. I suspect it is because fedora 8 setup doesnt have the particular modules for this gigabit ethernet controller.
Meanwhile i had installed F8 on another cPCI based system, where i got the option for ethernet controller during installation. It is working fine there. I tried re-installing F8 on the PXI system, but yet again i did not get any option for the ethernet controller configuration.
So kindly tell me is there any command which gives us information about the ethernet controller in the system (even BIOS command). The info isnt available in any of the datasheets. Meanwhile i am trying to get the info from NI support.
