Talking Configuring Redhat to use cable connection.

doooodz, what's up.

I'm new to linux, running redhat 7.3 with a Toshiba PCX2000 cable modem and a Cnet Pro200WL PCI Fast Ethernet card. I'm hyped to learn more about linux so first thing I need to do is get it online; so far to no avail.

I've manually edited the following files: ifcfg-eth0, resolve.conf, network, and since it's still not working I'm wondering if I need a driver specified in cfg-eth0. It currently only holds values for:


Should I have a line for a card driver? I don't have netconf or linuxconf installed, so should I have used either of these to edit the scripts? I don't know what other info you need. I'll continue to search the net to figure it out myself, but your help is greatly appreciated.
