Do a locate for "redhat-config-*"

These are all of the redhat specific configuration utilities. Most of them are authorized through PAM so you don't have to become root to use them; PAM will ask you for root's password when you try to run the program. I think you will want to run:

redhat-config-network

(I think! )

Cheers--
Charles

Red Hat has divided up the functionality in Linuconf into several apps. If your root and are using KDE or GNOME go into the system menu. There will be listed the config apps.

You can find more info here

Linuxconf was buggy, unstable and unsecure. Another option would be to install and use Webmin if you like the GUI approach to configuring your system.
