Angry problem with interface device of network


Hi I am new user to linux and installed redhat to learn something in Linux and I know some unix commands not a naive user but have some knowledge.

My problem is that when i tried to configure the network using network configuration It asks me to select network device obviously ethernet
but it asks for the hardware vendor name . I dont know that and when i tried to figure it out using my Windows OS it shows that its details it shows is



Name: Realtek RTL8168B/8111B Family PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC (NDIS 6.20)
Device ID: PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8168&SUBSYS_D6068086&REV_01\4&5B10156&0&00E1
Driver: C:\Windows\system32\DRIVERS\Rt86win7.sys, 7.02.1125.2008 (English), 7/14/2009 03:32:52, 139776 bytes


so , I thought there are no drivers in linux and got new versions of drivers from intel whoose name is e1000-8.0.19.tar and i installed it

but again the same problem when i select Intel ethernet pro gigabit

it is

e1000 device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization.


please help me out

Well, okay, you're using RHEL there; presumably you're paying for the support, hell; there is no really use for RHEL otherwise, so you'll be better off ringing them and asking.

If you're not paying them, can you do for me
Code:
export PATH=PATH:/usr/bin
and then lspci and lsmod again, please

lsmod and lspci should reside in /sbin. As root (su -, not su) try running /sbin/lsmod or /sbin/lspci.
