Setting Up Network Card in Dell PowerEdge 1300 with SCSI

Linux (Red Hat 6.2) doesn't recognize my network card (Intel Pro 100+ V3.1).  I have a SCSI Card. Dell's configuration diagnostics see the card, and report that it is fine. The linux boot process says eth0 installation failed. I've added the required IP and networking information data. the SCSI and NIC compete for IRQ 11. I've tried setting the NIC to different IRQs - still no help.

Any Clues?

You don't have the correct driver for your Network card. Go to Dell web site and download the correct Linux driver for your NIC.

This is probably a good idea, except that  they don't specialize in
custom support of Linux components. (at least at this time).  After talking at length with very helpful folks at red hat, it turns out that the machine shipped configured for two processors, while having only one cpu. The machine thought the NIC was the second CPU. The trick was to re-set it to a one-cpu OS.

I ultimately did a clean re-install with marking the specific options.

It works fine now.
Thanks for the suggestion.
