    Nic

    What must I do to get my NIC on my RH Linux 6.1 to work? I have googled, but it kept coming up with drivers which I already have... Thanks!

    try running the network configuration tools?

    netconfig

    Or something similar. I use the Linuxconf network section personally
    Just run linuxconf from a command line, or from X if the X version is installed on your system.

    I have the drivers, but I don't know how to install it.

    I have a d-link, but that is beside the point.

    I put in the card, try to get it up and running in linuxconf. At no point did the system ask me for the driver, how do I install the driver?

    Kudzu is a wonderful powerful program that will detect hardware for you in later versions of RedHat, I just don't remember if it existed in RedHat 6.1. It will handle all the module work for you.

    I think some (most?) of the d-link cards use the tulip driver. So you would type 'modprobe tulip' or 'insmod tulip'. And if that gives you errors, then try some of the other common drivers: eepro, eepro100, 3c59x, 8139cp, or 8139too.

    tulip is a driver type for an ethernet adapter (network card).

    if you know the name of the driver for the dlink, you can try adding the following to /etc/modules.conf (or /etc/conf.modules):

    alias eth0 <dlink_driver_name>

    then try the ifconfig command to set an address for it... it might also help to learn the syntax of ifconfig (man ifconfig)

    ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.1
