I have a dual boot workstation.. Win2K Pro / Red Hat..
in Win2k Pro.. the workstation is working fyne but if i use RH.. it cant detect any connectivity.. it cant ping any other workstations or even the server.. everything is set up well. it recognizes the network card and the IP address is ok.. so as the subnet mask.. anyone has an idea of what the problem is?

Since you say that the card is recognized and has the correct IP address, I'm assuming that you've checked the output of "ifconfig eth0" What kind of network so you have? Is it a DHCP client? It sounds very much like maybe the gateway isn't set properly.
Try inputting all the paramaters by hand and see what happens:
/sbin/ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.xx broadcast 192.168.1.255 netmask 255.255.255.0
/sbin/route add -net default gw 192.168.1.1 netmask 0.0.0.0 metric 1
And make sure the DNS server is in /etc/resolv.conf
Or if it's a DHCP client, check to see that your gateway is properly specified at the DHCP server and try "dhcpd eth0"
Do what you want with the girl, but leave me alone!

kewl! thanks ill try that 2morrow when i get back to work
btw, we shut down the DHCP server at that time so we could put in the ip address manually.. but ill double check things 2morrow...
