is find out the make of the card, then google, or perhaps search Fedora
forums, for a solution. Most times, someone else has had the problem
before you, and has found a solution, though not always, of course.
One problem is, (and many newcomers do this, so don't feel badly) you
haven't been too specific about your problem. You installed Linux. What
sort of Linux? RHEL5. CentOS? Ubuntu (which probably isn't the case
as you probably wouldn't post to the RedHat list about it.) :)
For example, some of the earlier versions of RHEL5 have trouble with the
relatively common Realtek 8169 card. If you do a search around the
CentOS forums, you can probably find a solution that will work for
you--if, of course, it is the that card and that version of RedHat
(another reason to give more information when possible.)
Again, I'm not criticizing, as this is something you will learn with
experience. You made the effort to give the error message, and that in
itself is MUCH more helpful than posting something like, "My network
isn't connecting," with no more information than that.
Anyway, as I said, step one. Find out, if possible, the make of the
ethernet card. If Windows is dualbooting on the machine, you can use
its device manager.
If my guess (just because it's a common situation) is correct, and it's
RHEL5, (the earlier versions) and that Realtek card, then go to the
CentOS forums and just search for realtek 8169--you'll get many
responses, and see which solution seems as if it would work best for
you. If it's not that particular combination, post again with the
details of the card and which version of Linux, and hopefully, someone
will be able to help. (Although googling for it is also good, and
actually gives you a better chance of getting a quick answer.)

Drusilla: No, I can see them. But I've named them all the same
name, and there's terrible confusion.
