newbie question - how do I configure fedora 10 to automatically enable eth1?

OK - I have managed to get my fedora 10 installation reasonably functional, but every time I reboot I need to login as root and enable the eth1 interface using the gui. I know on my Debian install at work this is configured using /etc/network/interfaces but I can not find a similar fedora config file. Any help is much appreciated.

I don't use Fedora anymore,but from what I remember,you could check /etc/sysconfig/network and etc/sysconfig/network-scripts directories.
Try to run;
You need to select and edit interface in GUI tool and select "activate on boot" or similar.

Or just issue the command system-config-network, select eth1 and then "Edit" to set up the connection. It's fairly obvious once you get the window open.

1. open /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0(or eth1)
2. ONBOOT=yes
3.service network restart.
4.Next time when you reboot it will be up automatically.

got it working

Thanks for the suggestions. I got it working with the gui - but it is good to know which scripts are being used.
