Hi

then you could do this
CODE
modinfo 8139too

this should give you back some info about the module (just checking if you have it)
then type
CODE
modprobe 8139too

this should show nothing at all if everything is ok

CODE
cd /etc
vi modules.conf


look for a alias eth0 if there is one.... if not
then just add

alias eth0 8139too (and if it's really realtek 8139 chipset)

then it shall work after you type
CODE

reboot


Sincerely

if this works then

CODE
cd /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/
vi ifcfg-eth0


DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=static (if you don't use DHCP to asign ip adresses)
BROADCAST=the subnet you are in, the last number is 255 (for example 192.168.0.255)
IPADDR=your ip adress
NETMASK=255.255.255.0 (this is used in most cases, unless you are using two different subnets
and want them to be able to view each other without a nat server , then you would use 255.255.0.0
which mean that 192.168.x.x x=number . So if you have a pc in 192.168.0.2 and a pc in 192.168.3.2 with subnet at both computers 255.255.0.0 they will be able to view each other)
NETWORK=your subnet , ther is a zero (0) at the end ( 192.168.0.0)
ONBOOT=yes (so the device gets started up at boot)
TYPE=Ethernet

now we need to specify our gateway computer ( the computer that is usualy connected to the internet and is sharing connection with other computers in our home network, or company)

CODE
cd /etc/sysconfig
vi network


NETWORKING=yes (so that networking is enabled)
HOSTNAME=blablabla.blabla (you have already specified this during install, so something should be here)
GATEWAY= the ip adress of the computer that has internet sharing enabled ( for example 192.168.0.250)

now we need to specify our DNS server ( the one that transalates names to ip adresses)

CODE
cd /etc
vi resolv.conf


nameserver 192.168.0.250 (if it's a winxp computer then it will work, if it's a linux computer you must have a dns running on it) or you can use the dns server of your isp
