RedHat 5.0 Network Bootup problem

hi,

I just upgraded from Slackware 3.0.1 to RedHat 5.0. I am using NE2000 compatible network card. In slackware, I can configure the network card to work probably. But after I upgraded to RedHat 5.0 and I am sure I install RedHat 5.0 properly, there is the following message at bootup:
/proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward is missing and the network card is not configured. Does anyone have the similar problem? I would appreciate anyone help me to solve this problem. Hope the kernel does not need to be recompiled.

Regards,
Keltam

did you configure your network card on X-Windows?
netcfg <-- type that on Xwin command prompt
and edit your network card
