Hi folks, I've set up a small network at home with RedHat 7.1 as a dhcp server. The problem is I can't get the eth0 to be recognised by the system at all. I have checked the setup before boot, but found nothing that would help. I have tried around six different nics, and know that some do work with other systems, ie win98. I have checked the cable between the nodes, the link light is on at both ends. When RedHat boots up the eth0 interface fails and is left to be initialised later. I have gone to linuxconf and tried that, but to no success at this point.
I am doing a diploma in IT at Tafe and this is homework for me. I have been able to get the two nodes, (win clients) to ping each other using static ip's, but the point of the exercise is to use dhcp.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
