I am running Red Hat 6.2, I am brand new to Linux, and also have a Windows 98 computer as well. I used to have Windows 98 on both computers, now I have Win 98 on one, Linux on the other, and I want to share the internet connection. Most instructional guides tell me how to set it up, however, during installation my network card was not detected. How can I go about making Linux detect the network card? I'm not even sure what make it is, it came with the computer that I had acquired from school.

Some network driver may not be included in your RH6.2, that's why during your installation it can create for you, can you post your NIC band and the model here so that we can give you more hints.

without those info, I can suggest you to get the latest RH 9.0, since it have most of the driver in it, so it's may more easy for you. and RH6.x have log of security hole, RH9.0 with the new kernel and more safe than the old kernel.
