While doing an install of RH 6.1, I am never presented with the "Network Configuration" screen.  I have a 3C905 NIC in the system that works fine in other OS's.  How can I get the NIC functioning once RH is installed?

Is the system loading a driver for the 905? Look in the output of lsmod for 3c59x. And you can also look in /proc/pci to see if it's being found and what IRQ/IOport is being used.

Well as for the 3c905 first load the 3com module on to the kernel, i.e. go to the linuxconf & configure the card, next
on the terminal window type "lsmod" just to check wether the module is loaded (the 3com module) then just type netconf or netconfig,
netconf

Fill up the data
& your ready to go.

consider my points if this helps you out
