Has anyone installed RH 9.0 on VMware?  How do you config the NIC?  The physical host is an Intel PRO/100 mini PCI and the NIC inthe VM is just VMWare's virtual NIC...

I am clueless, any help appreciated!

The virtual NIC is a AMD PCNET PCI, which means that in your Red Hat network configuration, you select this device type. If you did configure vmware so that it provides a DHCP server, you are pretty much done. Just tell your RH installation which DHCP server to use, if you reserved a network segment for your virtual machines, just specify all the required information.

Where are you stuck? What's not working?

physical system = win2k, static IP,   VMware is DHCP

when I go and set the net config, I get the error - " Eth1 does not seem to be present."

Tried the solution found in another string:

check_link_down () {
   return 1;
}

but no luck.

Thanks

The Red Hat system should only see eth0. You only have one virtual network adapter. When your virtual Red Hat system  is up, can you please run /sbin/ifconfig
This will report all network interfaces the system finds. There should be an eth0.

Hey, have you installed vmware tools? You should install it first and then it automatically adds the proper driver ( a virtual driver - AMD type thing ).

You need to copy /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 to /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1 by yrslf
and modify IP inside the file before bring it up.

But my problem is how can I using physical NIC inside VM instead of virtual NIC?
