Ethernet Driver Problems in Redhat 7


Hey, i'm an extremely new Linux user, I am a Mac user, but this has proved to be of little/no help to me. I have this old Patriot computer im trying to breathe life into, and the ethernet requires a driver (which i'm not currently able to link to).
However, i haven't a clue how to install it. Please help!

Cheers, Matt.

Can you figure out which chipset is used on your computer?

#1, Read http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=247034
#2, Kernel 2.6.10 and 2.6.15 (these are what I use) support your chip. Get kernel source (www.kernel.org), and read Documentation/networking
