How do i know that my 8139too driver is working properly?

My machine is installed with Linux Redhat 7.2 and i did have the problem of network card undetected, however as to the previous comment from a helpful friend, i was able to get some results from the insmod 8139too and i added "alias etho eth0' in the module.conf. When i browse the network configuration tools, the network card was unable to provide the IRQ and and IO value, and i couldn't save the setting as an error for 'network card not configured properly" was shown when i want to exit from the network configuration tool. Please help.

module.conf should be "alias eth0 8139too"

Then do "ifconfig -a", you should see an interface called "eth0". Then configure.

I did do an "ifconfif -a" and two device was detected: eth0 and eth0:0 was shown. What does this mean? Anyway the after i rebooted, i couldn't find the device eth0 or the eth0:0. How do i configure my Redhat Linux to permenantly accept the configuration. I also did a "modprobe 8139too" after that, but no result was shown. Should the network configuration tools show the IRQ and the IO port value inorder the device to work properly.

use the netconf utility and for driver module enter 8139too. u can view all drivers by pressing ctrl+x on the respective field

another way wud be to add this line in ur /etc/profiles file

modprobe 8139too
