Smile How to install NIC driver and will be auto detect when system boot up.


Hi, if have a old version RHEL3 OS install on system, than i cannot detect new type NIC card or other hardware, i download a correct driver and driver file name extension should be *.ko right? Ok, now i already install that new NIC card which is cannot be detect on my old RHEL3 OS, I just download this new type NIC card driver, than copy this file inside my old RHEL3 OS, i using command # modprobe 'my_new_NIC.ko' than ok, than just up it by command # ifconfig eth0 up . How to lets my old RHEL3 OS when reboot than can automatic detect this NIC and load this driver module, no need to manually using command # modprobe *.ko .

Thank you answer my question.

I think that in RHEL3 you place the modprobe command in /etc/modprobe.conf.
