10/8    I have a computer running RedHat 6.0.  I just got an ethernet
        card from 3Com.  How do get LINUX to recognize the card?  I
        know that if I reinstall everything it will ask me about the
        installing a NIC, but I'd rather not reinstall.  Thanks.
        \_ Oh boy, not RedHat again.  Try linuxconf or netcfg or
           control-panel.  Actually, if you go into the /etc/conf.modules
           file you'll se an "alias eth0 ___"  Change the ___ to the
           appropriate module in /lib/modules/2.2.5/net
        \_ You can find a list of drivers in
           /usr/src/linux/Documentation/; make sure the
           driver for your card is configured in your kernel or compiled
           as a module.
           have lots of other pertinent info. -brg
           \_ WTF?! Isn't linux supposed to just work?  This looks worse
              than fucking windows! -sameer
