u added a new network card? Redhat 7.1 should do that automatically. Do let me know more details on your problem.

I've always had this NIC in the machine. I just switched over from mandrake to see how redhat is.

RedHat has no problems detecting my NIC, but in order for RH to see my NIC, I have to manually install ne2k-pci via modprobe.

I just want to know how i can set it up so i can get eth0 to load on boot with the correct module.

you should be able to just add a line such as "alias eth0 ne2k-pci" to /etc/modules.conf
