OK, both lo and eth0 show up when you run ifconfig, correct ?
Can you post the output of ifconfig ?

Also, are you using DHCP or a static IP ?
Post /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-eth0

It may be a routing issues, type and post the output of:
Code:
route -n
Quote:
ping www.google.com
"unknown host www.google.com"
Have you tried to ping the IP (216.239.57.99).
DNS configuration file is /etc/resolv.conf

And also the output of lspci ? (From Joey.Dale's post)

Also, I re-installed RedHat 8 and when it tries to activate eth0, it fails. Should I unplug all cables, pull the card out and re-install it?

Or upgrade to RedHat 9.0

Linux has detected your network card. The problem may be in the configuration.
Please see my previous post (above).

OK, I have some values and I think it may be a routing issue, but how to fix?

output of /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-eth0 [I now have RedHat 9.0, so it's buried differently, but the same file] :

device = eth0
bootproto = dhcp
onboot = yes


output of route -n

Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface

169.254.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.0.0 0 0 0 lo
127.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.0.0 0 0 0 lo



output of /etc/resolv.conf

File is empty

Cable Modem issues perhaps?

(This is something I just didn't think about, because the XP machine is doing fine)

I have a hub that is connected to a cable modem. The XP machine and Linux box are connected to this hub. The XP box works fine, and even the lights come on for the Linux connection, but the Ethernet card won't work.

Should I be more worried about getting the Ethernet card to connect to the cable modem (which I doubt), or just try to get it configured period?

Yeah--Linux finds the eth0 and knows it's there, it just fails on configuration--

-- somehow I have to do that and I don't know how.

With this setup, only one PC can be connected to the internet at a time because your ISP is only providing you with one IP via DHCP.
So you will have to change your network setup or turn off windows when you want to use Linux.

Since you now have two network card, you can put both of them in the Linux PC and use Linux as your router/firewall.
So, your new setup would look like this.
Cable Modem -> Linux PC -> windowsXP

For this setup, take a look at this thread

Wow.

Here I was mad at Linux and it was my damned XP machine!!

You are right; I shut down Windows, unplugged the cable modem, reconnected it to the Linux box, and boom I was surfing.

I will go to your link to set up the network like you describe. I was planning on networking them at some time anyway, so I guess this is my motivation.


THANKS ALL FOR ALL THE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Penguin ROCKS.
