I had this same problem, and could find no way around it.
Eventually, I just installed RedHat 5.1 insted, and then both my
Ethernet card and Sound Card worked fine (after configuring the sound
Then, I installed RedHat 5.2 using the "Upgrade" option duing install,
and it all still works fine... then I started in on installing all the
updates from ftp://update.redhat.com and finally the box works, and is
fairly up to date.
I don't know it that helps or not, but it is the ONLY way I found around
the problem. To me it seems like some kind of bug in RedHat 5.2.

Well, that one should be easy, provided it's not a "gutted win-modem"
that doesn't really have all the chips it should. Run "modemtool" and
select the com port it is set to (jumpered? if not, jumper it). Then
run "netcfg" and go to "interfaces" and add the modem, and enter your
ISP phone number and all that, and your set.
