     I have a strange problem with my RedHat Linux 6.2.I am using a
customized version of the OS from a vendor who also ships a particular
application and ships it as a bundle.This is because we are doing a
project based on that application.Now the problem is my kernel detects
my realtek NIC card but there is no file called eth0 inside /dev and
no entries inside /proc/net/sys/ipv4/conf for eth0.But when I
installed a native Linux(RH LINUX 8.0) it is there.And during the boot
up it is showing the message "Bringing up eth0 [OK]".And I have
created the ifcfg-eth0 file inside /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ and
given the necessary records for networking.And when I issued the
command "service network status",under the active interfaces it is
saying that only lo(loopback) is active.And I also issued the command
"ifconfig eth0" which says Driver information database not found :
eth0 is not present.I don't remember the exact nature of this
message,but it was something like the above.

     Later I deleted the ifcfg-eth0 file and created the same by
running the netconfig utility.But again the same problem.Also it is
not showing the realtek module when I issued the command "modinfo".Is
all these things happening because it is a cutomized kernel ? What is
the solution for this ? Please explain in detail.I would like to get a
strong and quick answer as this problem is a work stopper for me
now.Thanks in advance.
