Power, HMC, and Linux

I installed Linux on my Power, and the bootlist is updated properly.

I can log into the Power into RHEL via the java console.

Just one thing.  I need to configure the network parameters.  I usually do this in a Linux installation through the Network GUI in Gnome, butever, I do not get a Gnome session from the java console, just a login resembling a putty session.

(I did not configure the network during the installation because the Linux installation screens did not work well with the java console, so I bypassed them hoping to modify them upon bootup (and then use the GUI to do so).

In short, what utility can I use to configure the network in Linux ?

Thanks

In short: install webmin, that's probably the best solution.

(or try SuSE instead of RHEL   ;-)   -  you will have yast there).

Forgot to say - the native RHEL tool is system-config-network-tui.

As said above, to use the Network Administration Tool, you must have root privileges. To start the application, go to the Main Menu Button (on the Panel) => System Settings => Network, or type the command system-config-network  or system-config-network-tui, for more info execute the command system-config-network-cmd --help.

I used the system-network-config-tui to configure the card  (I like the tool)

However, I do not see a way to activate the ethernet card.

How can I do this (I can not ping outside sites just yet)

The card should come up automatically as soon as an address is assigned to it!

Otherwise

ifconfig eth0 up

should do, but there must be an address configured.
