Hello.  I am getting started with Red Hat 7.1 for the first time, and I am
having trouble connecting to the web.  The eth0 device fails to inititalize
at startup.  The following settings appear for the eth0 device:

IP address -> entered correctly
netmask -> 255.255.255.0
network -> 169.237.204.0
broadcast -> 169.237.204.255

after startup, I activate the eth0 device and try to connect.  I get an
unknown hosts error message.  The error message suggests that I may have to
set the $SOCKS_NS environment variable to point tot he appropriate name
server.

Any suggestions?  Thanks very much.

Regards - ECM

As root from a command shell, can you do the following and report the
results?
# ifconifg
# ifconfig eth0
(Are the above the same when looking for eth0?)
(If eth0 is reported in both, that is a good sign.)
(If eth0 is only reported when you explicitly include "ifconfig eth0" that
means something else.)


THE FOLLOWING IS OUTPUT FROM THE COMMAND SHELL:


[root@penguin /root]# ifconfig
lo	Link encap:Local Loopback
	inet addr:127.0.0.1  Mask:255.0.0.0
	UP LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:16436  Metric:1
	RX packets:6 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
	TX packets:6 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
	collisions:0 txqueuelen:0

[root@penguin /root]# ifconfig eth0
eth0: error fetching interface information: Device not found

ADDITIONAL INFO

[root@penguin /root]# cd /dev
[root@penguin /dev]# ./MAKEDEV eth0
don't know how to make device "eth0"


If eth0 is listed in both of the above results, can you show us what:
# route -N
reports?

If that has entries, could you tell us what this shows:
# cat /etc/resolv.conf

Thanks,
-ME
