Two things:
First, the A7V8X comes with two possible nic: the gigabit 5702 and the 10/100 4401. The 5702 is already supported in kernel version 2.4.20, with the tg3 driver. RH9 should have picked this up on the install and not require any extra modules be loaded. Be sure you have the gigabit controller and not the 10/100.

Something you may or may not redhat the /sbin directory isn't in the default path. To use anything like lsmod, insmod,rmmod, etc requires that you tell it the full path.
will do the trick.

Hope this helps.
