Angry Configuring NICs in KDE

I have installed Red Hat Linux 7.3 running the KDE Revision 3.00 desktop. I can't seem to be able to find where I can configure my network interface cards. Can someone please tell me how do I configure NICS in KDE 3.00? I am stranded!!!

I'll boot up my Slackbox when I get home tonight and go into KDE. It's been a while since I used KDE but I'm pretty sure there's a Network option in the kicker menu. There should be information on your NICs. Have you tried to do it manually as well from the command line?

Most distro's have the netconfig utility to configure network cards. Have you tried doing it that way ? I wouldn't rely on KDE to configure your NICS in my opinion. You can also configure your network cards by using these commands:


And of course loading the modules for you particular cards with:


man each of them for more information. I'm not saying configuring by KDE is bad, I'm just saying making yourself familiar with the command line is good, cause that one day you can't get into KDE and you need network connection, you'd really be stranded.
