Try 'modprobe tulip alias eth0' or 'modprobe rtl8139 alias eth0' and see what you get.

modprobe tulip alias eth0 gave the following output

/lib/modules/2.4.7-10/kernel/drivers/net/tulip/tulip.o: init_module: no such device

/lib/modules/2.4.7-10/kernel/drivers/net/tulip/tulip.o: insmod/lib/modules/2.4.7-10/kernel/drivers/net/tulip/tulip.o failed

whereas the second command
modprobe rtl8139 alias eth0 just executed without any output. i checked ifconfig to see if linux detected the ethernet card but it didnt.

If tulip worked - that's good as modprobe usually only reports bad news. Try 'ifup'or whatever script Red Hat uses to get the network started.

According to this redhat page your card is supported, there should be links there to the info you need to get it working.

modprobe rtl8139 alias eth0
ifconfig eth0 up
netconfig (or is it netconf... its been a while since I used RH)
Follow the steps in netconfig.

This should then come up like this every boot... hopefully.

Cheers,

Finegan

Thanks for the reply, Finegan and Bmpovva.

Modprobe does not find rtl8139 module.

And unfortunately 8139too module does not work for me. Redhat says device cannot be initialized.
I also tried to compile the rtl8139.c myslef. But I got unresolved symbol(such as kmalloc) when "insmod pci-scan.o rtl8139.o"

Any idea what's to do next. I am using Redhat 2.4.7-10 release.
