in RH 9(not my normal system but the one i have right here at work) there is the command
Code:
/sbin/ifconfig
i believe this will help you with all the info you need

example return:

Code:
[joe@RH9Server ~]$ /sbin/ifconfig
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:01:02:41:82:84
          inet addr:*.*.*.*  Bcast:*.*.*.*  Mask:255.255.255.0
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:150243073 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:96072243 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:575
          collisions:2331496 txqueuelen:100

lo        Link encap:Local Loopback
          inet addr:127.0.0.1  Mask:255.0.0.0
          UP LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:16436  Metric:1
          RX packets:11498 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:11498 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0

that would be a good reason you couldn't find it... lol
regular users don't have /sbin in their $PATH for the reason that most of the apps/tools there are usually only configuation stuff and root usually only needs that... but FYI... RH doesn't even give root that privilage by default. go figure.

I'm not sure where you get that from it should be set when you start a login shell as root.

If you are using su then remember to use "su -" rather than just "su".
