eth0 startup

When I first setup redhat 7.3 I missed something in the startup
configs from the command line (No X)

Now I have to manually put in

/sbin/ifconfig -a eth0 netmask

And then start the DHCP with /sbin/dhcpcd -n eth0

How do I automate this.. Which files do I edit?

I must of missed something on the initial install... I can see that
it recognizes the eth0 on the startup but it doesn't load the drivers..

It would some of the startup files in /etc/rc.d

I think the easiest thing to do is to put those two lines in
this is the script that gets executed after all the other startup scripts have been executed. If you add the two lines here, they will be executed during boot.
