I have a IBM x345 and have just installed Red Hat 7.3. The installation 
didn't detect onboard network cards. I previously had Red Hat 8 within which 
the NIC's worked fine with e1000.o drivers.

I have tried recommendation posted on this newsgroup of editing 
/etc/modules.conf, tried netconfig tool which created ifcfg-eth0 file, tried 
modprobe e1000. Now on boot error occurs: device not seem to be present, 
delaying initialization of eth0.

modprobe e1000 returns error .../.../e1000.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including 
invalid IO or IRQ parameters

Server has two processors and 4GB RAM.

Any ideas why onboard NIC's (server comes with 2 NICS's) are not detected 
and installed ??

Any help greatly appreciated. MG
