Posted: 29 Mar 06

I just wanted to post this here as an FYI since it took me several hours to find out how to do it:


Configuring Linux AMD PC NET network card in VMware GSX Server

After installing Red Hat, the network card may not be detected by linux, here is how to install the nic




Stop the network by issuing /etc/rc.d/init.d/network stop


-Manually load the module by issuing /sbin/insmod pcnet32  This module must be present in the /lib/modules/<your build number>/net directory for lsmod to find it.

-Verify it loaded successfully by issuing /sbin/lsmod

-Edit the /etc/sysctl.conf to alias eth0 pcnet32

-Activate the eth0 device by issuing /etc/rc.d/init.d/network start

-Configure your network settings
