Ethernet Card Configuration Problem


hELLO
I installed Red Hat 7.0 in a machine connected to network.But the OS nenver recogonised the ethernet card and it was installed as local host.Later when i ran "lsmod" i found that the module was not at all installed.So i ran
inismod "<modulename>".Know "lsmode" showed rlt8139.Know i gave an ip to the system using

ifconfig eth0 <ip> netmask <netmaskval>

but this inturn told
SIOCSIFFLAGS : Resource temproarily unavailabe.

Running ifconfig showed only lo

Can u plz help me out

are you sure, you inserted the right module? if yes, and the modules is listed by lsmod, then go and get yourself another netwok card :-)

if you are not sure, which driver issue the command:

lspci

this lists all pci devices in your computer. if there is something saying "network adapter" or so, then that is the right card.

hope this helps

Thanks a lot for ur reply
I have tried by using replacing the network chords but it never recogonises them.lspci does give the set of network devices but not in a proper format

what do you mena by not in the proper format?

besides: is there any error message when insmodding?

an idea: did you enter this line in /etc/modules.conf:

alias eth0 (driver name of network card)????

if you use modules you WILL need this...

hope this helps

bye

Thanks once again for ur reply.Actually my previous reply was not in proper format.lspcsi gave proper ouptut.Alias name is automatically given in the modules.conf file.Actually in the starts up eth0 staryt up is shown as OK but in the Ifconfig it shows only Lo.It is able to ping to its own ip,but it cannot reach out to other machines in network.If the network card is not recogonised where will this Ip be stored????
