adding a network device in redhat

I just installed fedora 1 and it recognized everything except the network card. I have downloaded the appropriate drivers from intel, and I made a module and installed it, aliased it in modules.conf but for some reason redhat doesn't even know that I have a nic in the system. I originally had fedora2 on the system which could detect the card but didn't have the drivers, I rolled back to fedora1 because fedora2 had some show stopping bugs for me. anyways, how do I 'add a network device' in redhat? Is there a hardware scanner I can run to detect new hardware?

Did you ever succed in getting Core 1 to recognize your NIC? In fedora the hardware scanner is called 'kudzu', you can likely find the kudzu kickoff script at:


If you are still working on this it might be worth looking in the '/proc/pci' file to see if it has a Ethernet card registered. If so you can likely succed at plumbing the device and setting the configuration to get it going.
