I have RedHat 6, and during the installation I didn't do the LAN
configuration, but now that I've learned a bit of Linux, I do want to
use my 3com Etherlink XL 3c900 Combo card. The problem is whenever I try
to run ifconfig with eth0 (I have been told that this should be my
ethernet card) it errors out saying that there is no such device, and
indeed there IS no such device in /dev. I have created an interface
named eth0 using netcfg. What I am trying to do is configure my network
card, so I can use another computer as a proxy server. I already have
the proxy stuff configured, because I can do it in windows. So, does
Linux even know I have a network card? If not, how can I "let it know"?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
