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?
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.

well A LOT MORE INFORMATION would be helpful....... You need to install the driver, to put it simply.

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.

the tulip driver is Realtek
this works with dynalink/edimax/and all more tulip brands out there

Everyone's talking about tulip... what is a tulip?

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
