Most of the drivers are already there for most common ethernet adapters (e.g. Intel, Broadcom, etc...). If you need a special driver for a new adapter you might be able to get it from the manufacturer's web site (e.g. Intel, Broadcom, etc...) or if it came with your server you might be able to get one from the server maker's web site (e.g. Dell, HP, etc...).

However, RHEL5 is quite old so it is possible some manufacturers won't provide drivers for RHEL5 for newer ethernet adapters. You really should look at moving on to at least RHEL6 or better yet RHEL7 if possible.

Redhat Linux 5 ( Hurricane ) was released in December of 1997
it is very old and a antique

now in 2003 there was a name change and rehhat linux 9 became Redhat ENTERPRISE linux 2
the current RedHat Enterprise Linux is 7.2



so if this is the still OLD legacy support Redhat ENTERPRISE linux 5 the current is 5.11

please post the output of this

Code:
cat / etc/redhat-release

Good point - I assumed the OP meant RHEL5 but he did actually say RedHat 5. It would be totally shocking if anyone was still running the original RedHat 5. 11 years ago the oldest we had here when I started was RedHat 7.3 and even that was only on very old systems - we had newer RedHat 9 boxes and our next install was using RHEL 2.1 then RHEL 3 in 2005.

As I noted even RHEL5 is old (10 years) so using it while better than using RedHat 5 is still something one should be planning to move away from.
