installing intel pro 10/100 ethenet card

I have just installed red hat linux 7.2 on an IBM Thinkcentre. It has an onboard intel pro 10/100 ethernet card, however the auto probe does not see it. I have tried entering the following in grub.conf: append="ether=10,300,eth0" But this does not install it. I have an added complication that the X-window drivers are not happy with the graphics card either, so I can't run any of the windows-based tools.

When I read this article's title, I expect it to be about installing Linux. But it is not. First it talks about choosing a Linux distributIOn, then configuration and next steps. The only thing it says about the actual installation is that you find help on the page distributiOn which is even wrong :(( --ThorstenStaerk 16:20, August 22, 2010 (UTC)
