Hi Guys/Gals,

Just installed RH 6.1 on my machine. The installation program did not
ask for network card info and all that. So i loaded the ne.o module
manually (/sbin/modprobe -a ne.o io=0x280) and then used ifconfig to
bring it up. Now when i rebooted my box, i saw that eth0 was failed to
initialize. I supppose i need to pass some type of boot parameters to
kernel at boot time for my netcard (Io and IRQ) so that it will be
iniliazed at boot time. How do i go about doing it? Or do i need to
configure some file somewhere so that my netcrad will be up
automatically at boot time?

I would greatly appreciate your help. Thanks.
