Most likely you have to "su -" to root in order to run the command. I'm not sure about RedHat, but in many distros the command "ifconfig" can also be used. (these are all within either the konsole or the terminal window, mind you)

normaly you can check your Network-Settings by typing "ifconfig" in a terminal

Most network-settings in RedHat are stored in
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifconfig-eth0
for your first ethernet card

well, there should be other ways to check it but I don't know so I suggest to install linuxconf or ifconfig rpms from the install cds, if you have them with you, or look for the rpms in the internet.
for example in www.pbone.net

if you are looking for a setup-tool i would normaly use webmin. It is web-based and you have nearly all systemsettings in just one surface.

you should google to find it...
