Display and Network configuration problems


I have a P4 1.7 GHz machine with 512 DDR RAM. I installed Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 AS. After installation, the display came up but it was something like a "16 color" desktop. I had to install my Display driver RPM. I typed in the command for installing the RPM package. It said that Xwindows was in use and that I had to run the scripts. It then exited. When I rebooted into text mode and typed the RPM install command, it said that the package was installed. When I tried erasing the package, it said that the package was not installed. What is to be done now? How do I go about configuring my display?

I downloaded the ethernet drivers from the intel site. It was a tar.gz file. I extracted them to a directory. As per the instructions on the Intel site, i was to type in a command called "make install". When I entered it and pressed enter, it gave an error which said "Linux Kernel not found. Stop."
How do I install my ethernet card drives? Is there another way?

Exclamation Network card installation complete but display problem exists!


I got the network card working. I reinstalled RHEL 2.1 AS by choosing Custom and selecting all the packages, including the kernel source headers.

Installed the drivers. Just followed instructions given on the Intel site and it worked like a charm.

The display driver problem is not sorted out yet. The TAR package from Intel has drivers only for RHL 7.3 and RHL 8.0. There are no specific drivers for RHEL 2.1. Could this be a problem?
