How can I run the "Integration Services Setup disk" within Red Hat Linux 6.0 running within a Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V machine?

This Red Hat Linux 6.0 OS running within a Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V machine has been configured to connect to the external network (see the screenshot). This is exactly how all of the other Hyper-V machines running within this Server 2008 R2 OS are configured.

When I first loaded all of the other Windows Server Hyper-V virtual machines, none of them were able to connect to the internet until I inserted and ran the "Integration Services Setup disk."

My Red Hat Linux 6.0 boots up into a command line console. I am unable to ping any other network computers on the same Local Area Network or any websites. This is because the "Integration Services Setup disk" (which has been inserted within the virtual Red Hat Linux 6.0 Hyper-V machine) hasn’t been run yet.

I understand that there is probably a different way of running the "Integration Services Setup disk" within Red Hat Linux 6.0. It appears that this needs to be done so that the Red Hat Linux 6.0 virtual OS will be able to access the Local Area Network and the internet.

Please tell me how I can the "Integration Services Setup disk" within Red Hat Linux 6.0 running within a Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V machine (or perform the equivalent process).
