The only problem I had there was not adding a default route. My setup at home
uses a gateway at 192.168.0.1:
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
192.168.0.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 5 eth0
but also in the network configurator somewhere you need to add
default 192.168.0.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 4 eth0
(where 192.168.0.1 is the address of your gateway, of course)
I mean, this is fairly standard stuff, but for me Redhat's configurator didn't
make it clear.
What do you mean by "Things aren't happening"?. Is the card running? IE, is it
detected at bootup or when the module loads? For a little while I had a problem
with the card settings in the configurator because I assumed it was talking hex
numbers by default and therefore I wasn't adding the 0x before the IO address
of the card.
If the card works, can it ping its gateway? Can it ping other hosts on the
local network? Are you ensuring that the ne kernel module is being loaded at
I didn't need to modify any files by hand, after using the kernel and networking
